The basic idea of the Nintex forms is to provide the user with an opportunity to put in the data entry designs such as check boxes and list boxes. The Nintex Development Services also include validation of the data entry, and enabling the users to send data to the storage units such as the database.

  • Enabling the user to Copy files among Share Point team sites.
  • Permitting the users to move and copy files between Share Point team sites as well as One Drive Sources.
