Nintex Workflow - Modifying your Farm UDA

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
  The Problem I love Nintex UDA - it lets me push commonly used logic into a reusable User Defined Action.  Then lets me reuse it in multiple workflows.  What's even better, is when I update the UDA, I can choose to republish all the workflows that currently use this UDA, which updates them all too. There are however two problems with the UDA: They are scoped at Site, Site Collection or Farm levels, and they are stored with a unique UDA-ID in the Nintex workflow database.

Perfect PDF 2.0 Beta Released!

Finally!  The next iteration on the road to Perfect PDF 2.0 is available on NuGet! This new version is a ground-up rewrite of Perfect PDF.  The new version now uses Webkit as an embedded library rather than relying on an external executable to render your views.  This means fewer moving pieces, and tighter integration going forward! This version also supports generating PDFs from Razor views directly, without the need to run a web server.  That means you can embed Razor views in other types of applications, such as Windows Services, and use Perfect PDF

So what are you waiting for?  Go grab the newest bits off of NuGet now!  And early adopters, you can still lock in free upgrades for a year at a reduced price!  But act quickly!  The final version of 2.0 will ship in...(Read whole news on source site)
