SuperUser Account

When I mention Nintex Workflow Cloud to fellow SharePoint users, they are always interested and want to know more about what it is all about and what you can do with it.  In this blog post, I am going to highlight some of the key features of Nintex Workflow Cloud.

Feature Highlight: Beacons

Mention the word “Beacon” to many workflow developers and they may stare back with a blank look. 

A Beacon is an action control in Nintex Workflow that can be placed anywhere in the workflow to capture specific data.  With this action, you can produce additional data from a workflow for a Process Intelligence Lens report in Nintex Hawkeye.

A bunch of parts put together designed to do a certain task. Am I taking about cars or computers? Both actually. They are built to perform an intended purpose. Each have a set of requirements to function.

Some examples:

SuperUser Account

In this post I will focus on a mobile app’s looks and feel and share some tips to make it more professional

1.    Change the name and icon of the menu items:  In every menu item in the Content Section, you can select the pencil stencil icon to change name, icon, or both.  You can use this to rename the html item to “Home” and to provide a proper icon for it.  For another example, you can design forms and tasks to be more user-friendly by giving them custom names like “My requests” or “My tasks.”
