Nintex Drawloop DocGen for Salesforce Release Notes

Nintex performs two types of updates: back-end updates to our DocGen Engine and front-end package updates to the Nintex Drawloop DocGen for Salesforce managed package. The release notes will identify which enhancements or changes are related to DocGen Engine updates or Package updates. 


DocGen Engine updates are scheduled for the first Wednesday of every month (except in December and when this falls on a US public holiday – this would be moved to the following week) and do not require an update to the installed package. However, we recommend keeping the package up to date to receive the latest features and bug fixes.


New package versions are typically available once a month. You can install these updates at your discretion from the AppExchange. As a best practice, we strongly recommend installing upgrades into a sandbox organization for testing prior to upgrading the app in your production org. 


For more information, see Install the app.   To get the latest version of the app, see Nintex DocGen for Salesforce on the AppExchange.  

Note: Any unreleased services or features referenced in this or other public 
statements are not currently available and may not be delivered on time or
at all. Customers who purchase our services should make the purchase decisions
based upon features that are currently available.
