Introducing Nintex Workflow for Project Server 2013

I try not to mix my day job at Nintex with my community work and the content on this site, but today I want to make an exception and share some news on one of the projects I have been working on for the past few months.

I am pleased to announce that we have shipped Nintex Workflow for Project Server 2013 (NW4PS), an update to the popular workflow product for Project Server 2013.

Nintex Workflow for Project Server 2013

NW4PS 2013 provides all the capabilities of the 2010 version for use within Project Server 2013, including:

  • Demand Management workflows– implement workflows that support your full project lifecycle, from creation, through selection, planning, execution and to closure, leveraging an array of actions, including Query Project Server (PSI data), Project Publish and Change EPT;
  • Event Driven workflows – associated workflows to over 115 different Project Server event handlers;
  • Collaboration workflows – build workflows to support project collaboration scenarios that can talk back directly into Project Server.

NW4PS 2013 provides a seamless upgrade experience from Nintex Workflow for Project Server 2010, allowing organisations to leverage the new Project Server 2013 capabilities and features without having to worry about rebuilding & refactoring workflows.

As you would expect, Nintex Workflow for Project Server 2013 is fully Project Server 2013 aware, supporting items such as the new security modes, claims and 2010 look and feel in project workspaces.

  1. Hi Alex, congrats for such a great achievement.

    one question, whats the added benefit of using NW4PS to create demand managment solution since we can now use sharePoint Designer to do the same as well?

    • Hi Khurram,

      Great Question :)

      Firstly, I think SPD support for DM workflows is great. Anything that gets DM being used within more organisations has to be a winner. With SPD 2013, the workflows can be built for the new workflow manager and have the restrictions of that platform (deprecated actions etc). They also require the organisation to setup / maintain that infra.

      When you look at it, Nintex is easy to use, it gives you a simple in browser drag and drop designer with intuitive interface (dragging actions onto a canvas and configuring them) that is easy for any user to use. The Drag and drop is available out of the box, no need for additional licences (Visio).

      The main differentiator has to be capability, things like:
      * Available actions – additional PS actions (Query PSI, Publish, Update Properties, Change EPT) and over a hundred other actions including list manipulation, external integration, provisioning, logic and flow, tasks etc. All of which are simple to configure and to design
      * Core features – Things like Lazy Approval (reply to approvals via email), Workflow visualisations, scheduled workflows, constants, delegation etc, all out of the box.
      * Live – the ability to integrate with Nintex’s cloud middleware to bring web based services down into your on premise workflows like Yammer, Office 365, StrikeIron, Skydrive, Amazon, the list goes on. More services added every month.
      * Capability – Nintex is not just DM workflows, it’s Event Driven (Workflows associated with over 115 Project Server events) and Project workspaces.

      Hopefully that answers the question without sounding too salesman like ;)


      • Hey thanks Alex for a detail response, and this surely doesn’t sounds like a sales hit :)

        I personally am a big fan NW4PS 2010, and am sure 2013 version will bring more benefits.

        good luck and i hope that you are far enough to stay safe from Rusty threat.
