CRM Dynamics Workflow Designer like Nintex Workflow?

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.

Re: CRM Dynamics Workflow Designer like Nintex Workflow?

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. 

 

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/lifecycle/products/dynamics-crm-2011

 

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

 

Kind regards

Jake
