We're debating whether to upgrade or not to Nintex Forms Enterprise and would like to know what are the uses/benefits of using SQL Request Controls and Web Request Control
Shaikha Eid -
I am in the same situation, but we have it already and I am trying to understand the benefits of converting what we have to Nintex.
Let me first say that just because you have a tool, doesn't mean you have to use it every time. However, since we do have it, I might as well make the most of it and see what we could gain.
Currently I am working on updating a form that is currently in InfoPath to Nintex. The current form assesses who the current user is, and onLoad, executes a web service call to go and get all of the required employee information (employee ID, manager, department, etc) and populate the results into controls on the page. The form is also setup to call the service again is the user changes the "Current User" people picker control (think if a user is requesting something on the behalf of someone else). All of the results are mapped to form/list controls and done relatively easily; but I am very comfortable with InfoPath.
Check out Nintex Forms Enterprise - SQL Request and Web Service Request enhancement for some more information from the community and other links on how to use them.
Hope this helps!
