Hi



I have fairly complex workflows to be developed. I, naturally, could've gone for SharePoint + Nintex Workflow, but as a technology constraint I must use CRM workflows.



I was hoping that I could find something like Nintex Workflow for CRM Dynamics that gets integrated into its designer; exactly like Nintex does with SharePoint. So that I can design complex workflows within CRM itself, rather than using SharePoint -- Idea is to use CRM as xRM itself.



In this case, I could rely on following:





  • Simple workflows --> use CRM designer


  • Complex --> use Nintex Workflow + windows workflow foundation




Question: Can CRM2011 be used to develop complex workflows? Using WWF, or any other third party workflow engine?



Thanks in advance.

Hi @WaltSnowrancruz 



 



Currently Nintex provides the following workflow engines in its platform;



 





  • SharePoint on-premise


  • SharePoint 365


  • Nintex Workflow Cloud


  • K2 Cloud


  • K2 Five




 



Out of these, 3 of them can support CRM directly but 2 of them I think only support the 365 version of Dynamics as they are cloud based:





  • Nintex Workflow Cloud - Dynamics 365


  • K2 Cloud - Dynamics 365


  • K2 Five




 



The only product left would be K2 Five however it appears it is not compatible with CRM2011 but does work with CRM2013 onwards.

I am not sure if we will be adding support for CRM2011 as it is no longer supported.

If you have a migration plan to move to newer versions of CRM there may be options to use Nintex.



 



Kind regards
