The Nintex App Studio feature App Deploy lets you deploy apps without using an MDM.

Instead, after building your app, use Nintex App Studio distribution lists to send the app to your recipients' email address. The distribution list sends an email containing the link to download the app.  Optionally, you can view reports on your sent and downloaded apps. Currently, App Deploy is only supported by iOS and Android devices.


To create a distribution list

  1. Under the App Deploy tab, click Manage distribution lists.

    The App Deploy tab is accessible from the home page for all apps that are queued to build.

  2. Click Add on the Manage distribution lists page.

  3. Fill out the fields on the Edit distribution list page.

    You can copy and paste email addresses from most sources. Only valid email addresses are automatically extracted from the pasted text when you click Add

  4. Click the Nintex Mobile logo in the ribbon to return to the App deploy tab.


To email your app

  1. Under the App Deploy tab, select your distribution lists from the Distribution lists field.

  2. Optionally, turn on the Auto deploy feature, which automatically sends emails to your distribution lists when a new version of Nintex Mobile is released.
  3. Click Preview email to receive a copy of the email that is sent to recipients.
  4. Click Send email to lists now to send the email immediately.


To view downloaded reports

  1. Under the App Deploy tab, click View app downloads report.
  2. Specify any filters and then click Generate.


To view sent reports

  1. Under the App Deploy tab, click View emails sent report.
  2. Specify any filters and then click Generate.

Split-screen multitasking

Posted by kimarsde Employee Feb 1, 2017

Nintex Mobile now supports split-screen multitasking for iOS users! 

With the new supported capability, you don't have to choose between having the Nintex app or another app open. Instead, you can have two apps side by side. 


How can split-screen multitasking improve your Nintex Mobile experience? 

Let's say you get an email with information scattered throughout. You need to input information from the email into a form in the Nintex Mobile app. Rather than constantly switching between the email app and the Nintex Mobile app, you can use split-screen multitasking to easily fill in the form.  As the example image shows, you can quickly identify the needed information and enter it in the form all at the same time. 



Example image showing both apps on one screen. The Nintex Mobile app is on the left and the email app is on the right.



For more information on split-screen multitasking, see the Apple article About Multitasking on your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch and the detailed YouTube video Split Screen Multi-Tasking on the iPad Pro.
