Today Mark McDermott and myself presented our session on Building advanced Project Server workflows with Nintex Workflow for Project Server. The session covered three main areas where organisations can leverage Nintex workflow within their Project Server environments.
Demand Management – During the session we looked at some of the more advanced scenarios for building demand management workflows, leveraging some of the Nintex out of the box actions such as state machines and flexi tasks. We also looked at using some of the new V2 features including the Query Project Data action that allows the workflow to query the PSI directly from within the workflow.
Event Driven – We introduced the new capability of Event Driven workflows allowing you to attach a Nintex workflow to a Project Server Server Side Event providing a huge array of new integration and extensibility options for your Project Server farm.
Project workspaces –Finally, we showed how workflow could be provided in project workspaces to support a project team with a number of activities including approvals, routing and custom notifications. We also showed how easily workflows could be extended to integrate with cloud based services such as Office 365.
Try it yourself
We wanted to make sure that you could try everything that we showed in the session yourself, so spent some time building up three detailed ‘how to’ guides each covering a different area. Links to these guides as well as further information on Nintex Workflow, Nintex Workflow for Project Server 2010 and how to obtain trial copies are available from http://bit.ly/pc332.
