What kinds of things can I find in the Nintex Xchange?

The assets you’ll find include User Defined Actions, custom code samples (CSS, JavaScript, and PowerShell), workflow templates and form templates.


How do I search/filter Xchange to find an asset?

The categories using the and operator to display specific assets based on the categories selected.  This means that if you select two categories, it will only display assets that contain both categories selected. This may be a little tricky to figure out, but the recommendation is to start with one category in each section - platform, asset type, horizontal workload, and industry sector.
