Release v4.8.0 - February 2020


Introducing Process Checklists 

Give process users clear, executable process steps every time with Nintex Promapp® Checklists.   

Checklists ensure that end users have all the information they need to execute your processes, and tracks compliance with full audit records across every instance. Personalized notifications and clear accountability deliver smooth process completion, across teams, locations, and business units.  

Key benefits include:  

  • Get the right information in the right hands at the right time  
  • Capture the realities of process execution, as it happens  

Track process completion and accelerate compliance  

Read more about Process Checklists in our  blog article or learn more about how  Checklists work through our Help documentation and introductory video.


We’re consolidating how processes are published 

All Publish’/’In Progress’  toggle settings have been removed. Customers will be progressively moved to our click-to-publish mechanism with this release.
The click-to-publish
 mechanism is the standard for publishing new processes as well as changes. It allows you to build out or make changes to your processes, and only make them available to participants once they’re finalised.

For more information on the differences and benefits of our click-to-publish mechanism, please read the  Nintex Community article. Should you have further questions about the change, please reach out to our friendly  Nintex Support team.
