Lazy Approval for those who don’t have time
The Lazy Approval function allows employees to approve or reject requests directly from any location via notification emails, response to a Lync conversation or automated server message.
Avoid process stalls with state machines
With state machines, workflow processes jump between different levels of business logic in a way that's easy to understand and maintain. This means that you can avoid delays in your SharePoint processes by setting up synchronous approvals – common with processes such as employee on-boarding and document approval. Request denied in the workflow? Kick back processes to a previous level of approval in the workflow.
Automatically update critical documents
Make automated decisions and share information based on the content of critical documents and spreadsheets such as contract, financial reports or publications. Automatically update the documents and apply quality control processes before sharing them externally.
Integrate workflows with the other business systems you use
Nintex Workflow for SharePoint can integrate directly with your back-end systems, such as accounting or CRM system and data repositories. Leverage our built-in Web Service actions, integration to SharePoint’s Business Connectivity Services, Custom actions and external start to tie workflows back to crucial back-end systems.
Assign tasks and schedule appointments
Communicate tasks and appointments with Microsoft Exchange integration features. For example, send meeting invites that automatically populate users’ Outlook calendars or assign tasks that flow through to users’ Outlook task lists.
Use workflows to create user accounts and assign permissions
Minimize the burden on IT by creating Active Directory and SharePoint user accounts as they are requested and approved by managers, department heads and other stakeholders and assign the appropriate network permissions.
