Nintex Analytics release notes
Latest release: 13.0
Release date: October 28, 2021
Nintex Workflow Cloud engine version reporting in Nintex Analytics
As part of the engine upgrade program, Nintex Analytics now includes a new column for Engine version in the Workflows table. This is the engine version when a Nintex Workflow Cloud workflow is published. This value is also added to the workflows CSV report.
Filter moved to a right-hand side panel
We are Introducing an improved way to apply filters to view user data in Nintex Analytics. The filter on the Workflows page has been moved from a drop-down list at the top of the page to a right-hand side panel. The filter types remain the same.
Office 365 workflow upgrade reporting
Canada data center
Nintex Analytics now supports a new region for your API data with the introduction of the Canada data center.
Updates to the Workflow performance overview section
We've updated elements such as icons and text on the Workflow performance overview chart in the Workflow details page to align with other Nintex capabilities.
The new Reports page in Nintex Analytics allows you to download the following analytics reports in CSV or XLSX formats:
Workflow subscription utilization
See the Reports help topic.
SharePoint Online data connection permission changes
Users with Sites.Read.All permissions for SharePoint Online tenants can now create data connections.
See the Data connections help topic.
Workflows: Tasks in the workflow widget
The new Tasks in the workflow widget shows visualizations and a table for task actions in your organization's workflows.
For each task-based action in a workflow, a bar chart displays:
The number of active tasks.
The average duration of tasks.
Below the bar chart the task-based action details for the workflow are listed in a table. You can click on the task-based action label and a drill-down bar/line chart displays:
The total number of responses for each outcome for the action.
The average duration of each outcome for the action. Dot points in the line chart highlight the minimum, average and maximum duration of each outcome for the action.
See the Workflows help topic.
Data connection completeness
We're focusing on driving data connection completeness so you have a full view of your Nintex platform data. Nintex Analytics provides you with the information you need to know which data connections associated with your Nintex subscription have not yet been added.
At the top of the Data connections page, separate sections display information of how many possible connections have been established for each of the Nintex data connection types associated with your customer account.
See the Data connections help topic.
Instance usage widget: Rate of change
The Instance usage widget provides a quick comparison between previous and current instance data trends to support workflow optimization. Based on the time period you select, you can see a comparison with a previous period of the same duration. You can either select a preset time period, such as 30 days, or enter a custom time period. The comparison will indicate a percentage increase or decrease between the two periods for the following data:
Successful instance runs
Instances in progress
For example, on February 22, you select a date range for the past 30 days; you will see a comparison of instances initiated for the past 30 days (January 22 to February 22) and the previous 30 days (December 22 to January 22).
In upcoming releases, we will add a trend line for the entire period to show a fuller picture of the instance trends.
TV mode allows you to communicate Nintex Analytics insights effectively at a glance on a display screen in your office. Essentially, it is a TV version of the Nintex Analytics dashboard, where real-time snapshots and a summary of your data are displayed.
We want to engage our customers in a convenient way to view and analyse high level information about their Nintex platform without relying on interactive elements. TV mode keeps everyone engaged with the data and focused on the right metrics.
The following data is displayed in TV mode:
When in TV mode, the dashboard automatically refreshes. You’ll get the latest data every 2 hours, the latest updated date and refresh timestamp is displayed.
Instance Detailed View
There’s now a simple way you can analyse individual workflows and access workflow instances from Nintex Analytics to quickly resolve any issues within your Nintex platform.
You can view detailed information for each instance status. When you hover on the status, both graph and pie chart visualizations are highlighted. The links you see here opens directly to Nintex Workflow Cloud Instances page automatically filtered by status and date range.
Date range picker for Instances
Preset: choose from the last 30 days, 90 days, 180 days, or 1 year.
Custom: set a beginning date and end date to display instance data for.
You can now select a preset date range or set a custom date range to display data for in the Instances page and the Instance status widget in the Dashboard.
Direct link to the workflow designer from Nintex Analytics
You can now access the workflow designer directly via Nintex Analytics.
When you are viewing the Workflow Performance Overview widget for a workflow in Nintex Analytics, you can now click on the Workflow Designer button. This button opens the designer for the workflow and is accessible through the Workflows, Instances, and Actions pages in the side navigation of the Analytics tab.
We have made it easy for you to diagnose issues with your workflows e.g. status = Errored, then fix your workflows via the workflow designer button, which opens Nintex Workflow Cloud.
Reporting: Export data for all dashboard widgets
To assist with reporting, you can now export data for every widget in your Analytics Dashboard. Nintex Analytics currently supports csv, other formats will be coming soon.
Nintex Analytics Launch
After conducting months of research and collecting valuable feedback from our Nintex customers, we are extremely excited to announce the release of the new Nintex Analytics portal!
What you''ll experience is just our first step in a journey to bring you better insights into your data, which will help you drive further optimization of your Nintex process platform to deliver a higher return on your investment.
Nintex Analytics OData API
Access the Analytics page to see the Dashboard for Nintex platform capabilities and navigate to deep-dive workflow data.
In Settings, you can provide users with access to your Nintex Analytics workspace, add data connections to display data in your dashboard, and create your personal access token to authenticate and access your data using OData client tools.
The Nintex Analytics OData Application Programming Interface (OData API) provides reporting flexibility to extract data directly from different Nintex capabilities.
Here are some key improvements we're delivering with the new Nintex Analytics portal:
Ease of Use
The new portal has been built from the ground up using Azure Data Lakes, which ensures a performing experience and enables deeper insights across your Nintex process platform.
By rebuilding our data infrastructure from scratch, we were able to ensure data accuracy as a first and most important goal. We know how critical data is for key decision-making and that had the highest focus from our Engineering and Product teams.
Smooth migration from Nintex Hawkeye, little time to get started
Users can now leverage their Nintex Customer Central credentials to sign in, reducing friction and time wasted to remember separate credentials.
