Get Involved in the Nintex Community

Blog Post created by emily.billing@nintex.com Champion on Jun 23, 2014

Welcome to Nintex Connect!


The Nintex community is open to anyone to view and explore the site, however, if you'd like to contribute to discussions or ask your own questions, you'll need to be registered. Once you’re registered you can start your own discussion or reply to a current one, “like” a discussion or document and promote it within the community, and also build connections with other Nintex customers, and partners throughout the world. For more detail on the different areas on the site have a look at What do all these spaces mean?, or need to know Where can I find the forums and ask questions?


How to create an account

To create an account within, click on Register in the top right hand corner, and sign in with your email address. You'll receive a confirmation email, and once you have this, you can create a username.



How to complete the rest of your profile

Now that you've signed in, and created a username, you’ll want to give your profile some flair.

  1. Upload a profile photo, and select an avatar.

    On your profile page, click on Add your Photo, and then click on the black area for a photo. Upload your photo, and then click on Upload & Continue. You'll be good to go.
    To set your avatar, scroll down the profile page, and select your desired avatar.
  2. Complete your profile bio

    The next thing you'll want to do is complete your profile information. Click on the Your Profile tab and make sure to include your name and email address.
  3. Review and update your privacy settings

    Your privacy settings are important, as this determines what information people inside and outside the community can see. For example, we'd recommend your email address is set to only visible to registered users, not everyone. Here you can also view your profile, and see what it looks like to other people.

What can you see and do from your profile page?



You can access your profile page by clicking either on your name, or the drop-down arrow next to your avatar, This is where you have the option to view or edit your profile, change your password etc


Setting Your Email Preferences

By default, you'll receive emails in your Nintex community inbox on things you have followed, any social activity directed at you, and any connections you have made.


You'll also receive a weekly wrap-up of what's happening in the community. You can change your preferences to receive these everyday, twice a week, once a week or not at all! Just click on Preferences from the profile drop down menu.


Marking Answers as Correct

Did someone help you out? Why not give them credit and assist others looking for similar information by marking the answer as correct. If you posted the question, you'll see a correct answer option next to the replies. It looks a lot like this:


If a suggestion worked for you, go ahead and mark it as correct
