Converting Your SharePoint 2010 Workflows to Nintex. Fast.

You may have read that Microsoft recently announced the retirement of SharePoint 2010 workflows in Microsoft 365. By now, SharePoint 2010 workflows in new Microsoft 365 tenants have been turned off and will be removed from existing tenants on November 1, 2020.

Microsoft’s statement: “Starting 11/1/2020 6:00:00 AM, SharePoint 2010 workflows will be retired and users will no longer have the ability to run or create 2010 Workflows.”

Effectively, this leaves you with just a couple of months to rebuild your workflows on another platform. We understand that this could be an intimidating process, but at Nintex we are committed to ensuring that your transition is as smooth as possible.

For some great tips on migrating your workflows over from SharePoint 2010, check out our blog post.

Further, we understand that your business depends on these almost-defunct workflows, and the heightened sense of urgency to evaluate an automation vendor is greater than ever before. Nintex is a trusted Microsoft partner and leader in workflow and process automation. Our mission is to improve the way people work through process management and automation, and it starts with helping new customers onboard into our Nintex Platform quickly and easily.

Introducing our SharePoint 2010 and 2013 Workflow Converter

Nintex recently released a tool that can be installed on a Windows machine and allows users to convert SharePoint Designer 2010 or 2013 engine workflows, into a Nintex workflow. Leverage this tool to convert on-premises and online SharePoint Designer workflows to Nintex workflows on SharePoint, Office 365, and Nintex Workflow Cloud.

This converter creates the structure of your SharePoint Designer workflow within Nintex, saving you the hassle and time to figure out the comparable Nintex action that befit your 2010 workflows. All that is left is the final configuration of Nintex actions, and you will have yourself a functioning Nintex workflow that replicates the functionality of your SharePoint Designer workflows.
