What's New: Nintex Forms for Nintex Workflow Cloud Available Worldwide”

Blog Post created by matt.jennings on Sep 15, 2017

Over the last several months, you've likely heard us talk a BUNCH about the numerous investments we've been making in our forms technology across the Nintex Workflow Platform.


It began with us giving you the first glimpses of our next-generation Nintex Forms (Codename: "Zinc") at our annual user conference back in February. I bet many of you can still recall the InspireX keynote, where Ryan Duguid (our SVP of technology strategy) showed off an early look at these new forms investments in his Nintex Workflow Cloud demo.


Recently, we rolled out the new Responsive Forms Designer for Nintex for Office 365. And, your response has been fantastic. In just a few, short weeks, you've already started to design and publish a quickly growing number of new Responsive Forms. Nice work!


Now, it's with great pleasure we share the next major milestone: Nintex Forms for Nintex Workflow Cloud is now available worldwide for all new and existing customers

We’ve learned from a decade of experience gained from the hundreds of thousands of Nintex Forms you've created over a wide range of use cases and intranet scenarios. We’ve built Nintex Forms for Nintex Workflow Cloud from the ground up, incorporating this deep knowledge into the foundation of capabilities and user experience for the next decade of forms-powered apps. This helps you build, publish, and render these new forms faster than ever before...all part of your existing Nintex Workflow subscription.

Putting it another way: forms that can kick off a Nintex Workflow Cloud automated process--span cloud-based systems of record, content repositories, and taps into the full breadth of the platform's capabilities (document generation, mobile apps, analytics)--to truly drive meaningful business impact with the data you've collected.
