The interface could be better and more language support is needed in the development environment or in the solutions platform in general. Here in Algeria, we have clients wanting the solution to be in French instead of English. In the future, I think it would be a benefit for the company to have a larger social media presence. This way more people would know about the solution and its benefits.

The solution is a bit too expensive. It could be cheaper.

We had issues with long-running workflows for approval processes. While the workflows are waiting for the action to be taken by the approvers, sometimes the approval takes time and workflows do not respond to the actions after a certain number of days. We would like to design parallel workflows and long-running workflows, along with new features for connecting to cloud-based systems. When the workflow tasks increase in number, there are issues with performance that need to be addressed.

Integrating with work services is required, and it's an area that needs improvement. Stability needs improvement. From a monitoring point of view, and alerting should be improved.

The security features for this solution need to be improved. The only complaint from our client is about the annual cost of licensing and support.

The timer jobs that we have would never run on time. If you have a complex workflow, Nintex would just error out of it, without giving a "why" and "where". Error reporting is something that definitely needs improvement because most of the time it would just give a correlation ID or something. If there is a workflow issue then we don't know where it failed. The Nintext Pause operation causes problems and so do the parallel use cases, so these also need improvement. In the next version of the software, I would like to see a dashboard of all reports, the workflows that are running and their statuses. That would be helpful.

Nintex seems to be very server intensive. It is one of the reasons that we are moving to a different product on the SharePoint 2016 platform.
