Is Drawloop available for Nintex installed on SharePoint 2013 (On Premise)? If not, is there a similar product?
The Nintex Drawloop product is currently only available for Salesforce. On SharePoint, we did release a new doc gen action but currently this action is only available in the Office 365 implementation of Nintex Workflow.
Like Haley said, it is only available for Salesforce, while there is a doc gen action available for Office 365.
That being said, I attended the Nintex InspireX conference and they did announce plans to bring document generation to on-prem 2016, which will mean it should also be available in 2013. When that will be, I don't know.
It is possible however to do some basic document generation using Nintex Workflow 2013 for On-Prem. There are two actions you can look at called "Read Document" and "Update Document".
Here is a link to a PDF on how to use the action for basic document generation. It is for 2010, but it should still apply for 2013 I believe.
The main issue I've ran into while using the Read and Update Document actions is formatting within the document. Inserting content would often cause a loss in formatting for the specific content. This was an issue related to the version of Word the company was using, so if you're using a more recent version it should be okay.
Thanks for this - however the Document read and Update actions are not available in Nintex 2013 Standard (which is the version I have).
What is the actual state of "Document Generation Action" for Workflow On-Premises?
Hi Shawn Marcellin,
Nintex recently released their latest version with Document Generation action. You can check the release notes and download the installer. This action is available for both Standard and Enterprise customers.
