This course will suit a varied audience, from developers to sales people. Nintex Workflow 2016/2013 exists to allow workflow creation and management without the need for programming, this sets the tone for the course with no programming required during any of the topics.

Nintex Forms 2016/2013 makes it easy to create and complete engaging forms in the browser without the need for code. The fourth day of this course begins with an Introduction to Nintex Forms explaining where forms can be created and the terminology used to describe forms. Next you will see how simple forms can be created quickly and easily followed by a series of progressively more dynamic forms working with data from lists, libraries and workflows to reveal the full potential of the product. Once you have mastered the components used to build forms next we turn our attention to the look and feel of the forms learning how to customise the branding of individual forms including backgrounds and logos to ensure that your forms match your corporate branding. We will also show you how to modify the templates that are used to define new forms. The course concludes by showing you how to make your forms available to fill in outside of your SharePoint environment with the use of Nintex Live and Nintex Mobile.
This course is a demanding four days aimed at delegates that are already experienced users of SharePoint. No prior knowledge of Nintex Workflow is needed but some previous experience of Nintex Workflow would be an advantage. It would also be an advantage if you have experience of creating workflows in Microsoft SharePoint Designer or Visual Studio.
