Hello Nintex Community!
As someone said in their response to the survey, thanks to everyone on the site for their Nintex Community Spirit! And that's exactly what I think this site is so good at, and very evident in the feedback; so many of you mentioned how important and active the site is, as well as the willingness of others to share knowledge and tips to genuinely help others out.
Some quick takeaways:
- 50% of you visit the site at least once a week
- 76% think the site makes it easier for you to work with Nintex
- 70% believe the site helps you connect with other users
- 73% say the site helps them share their knowledge with other users
- 60% say the site helps you get answers to your questions
- Roughly 60% believe the site is easy to search and 50% think the site is easy to navigate
- And 90% of you would recommend the site to a friend
- Troubleshooting is the most common reason the community site it used, as well as finding best practice information and keeping up to date with product releases. You also like to use the site to get ideas on how others use Nintex products, to share knowledge and information, as well as educating yourself on issues.
I’m so thankful to everyone who participated. We really wanted to hear what you all think of the Nintex community. There were some fantastic ideas offered up, some of which we can do, and others we can’t, but are looking into ways to meet those needs. For example, yesterday we made a few changes to the top navigation and individual spaces which we think will help with challenges around navigation and search. This is something we're constantly looking into and improving and your feedback helped clarify some aspects. In the meantime, look out for other small changes to the site based on the feedback we received.
A few of you mentioned how this survey reminded you that you can contribute in different ways to the site, whether it be writing a blog post, answering questions, giving advice, or generally contributing any tips and tricks you have about Nintex products. And for all those new to Nintex, thanks for being involved, we're very happy to see you here.
A lot of you are also doing a fantastic job of reporting back to your initial questions with any news you’ve learnt, progress you’re making, and even if you’ve resolved the issue. As well as being able to answer that question, you're also providing valuable information for other community members who may also have the same question.
As part of our continued theme of hearing what you like, ideas you have for the site, and what you'd like to see improved, we're opening up a dedicated space so you can give feedback about the site to myself and team Community Feedback
Additional updates, information and FAQs inspired by the survey
We've improved the ask a question widget
We had some feedback around confusion on which space to ask the question in when you're coming from the home page or support space. We've updated the "ask a question" widget on these spaces so the question will be posted to The specified item was not found., unless you specify a different space in the list of options.
No question left behind
There was also talk about what Nintex is doing around unanswered questions. We keep tweaking with the tech on the site, and that was why we made it easier to find Unanswered Questions. Building on that effort, we're currently trialing an auto-escalation process for customers with Software Assurance; that means if you post a question on the community and, after a few days, you don't have an answer, the question will be escalated to our support team to address. This is just another way to ensure "no question is left behind". As this only applies to new questions, there will be questions which haven't been answered which you're always welcome to sink your teeth into and add your two cents.
