Hello all,


First of all thank you so much for all the help & guidance provided in these communities. It is really very helpful.


With so many options available in Nintex workflow, I am struggling to figure out the best option to build a workflow for a simple business process. Here is my workflow process flow.


  • An admin creates a list item with "Responder" people field filled out.  The person referred to in the "Responder" field will receive a notification informing him that he need to complete the list item with other fields that were left blank by the admin ( he just need to receive the link to the Edit form of the list Item).
  • Due Date is calculated based on Item created Date. It is usually 5 days from the Created date.
  • The Responder should start getting reminder emails if he did not complete the form 3 days before the due date and should continue to get the reminders until he is completed with the task.
  • The Responder or admin  should be able to delegate the task to other users.


What is the best way to achieve this with Nintex workflow actions?


Please advise,


Thank you.
