Use My First Workflow to solve real business problems!

The My First Workflow sample is a great starting point use when you want to experiment with creating real business process workflows from a simple but functioning core.

This workflow supports an online “Request for information” process by collecting email addresses from a public web form and sending back a pre-formatted email. From here you can add a couple actions and connectors to create a quick prototype that asks for approval to send follow on emails. With a few more actions and connections you can grow this workflow into a true industrial strength enterprise level workflow.

Manual “Request for information” processes tend to be inconsistent as each reply is handled in a slightly different manner. This results in lost time, missed opportunities and false starts. With this automated system using the Nintex Workflow Cloud, you can create a consistent process where each request for information is met with a best practice response.

The Basic Workflow

This workflow responds to an email address added to an online form by sending a customized email to that address.

  1. Start when the user enters an email address to an online form and clicks Submit.
  2. Send a pre-formatted email to the email address.
  3. The workflow ends.
