PDF Converter for SharePoint 8.2 - Support for SharePoint 2016 & Nintex Workflow 2016

Posted at: 12:51 on 23 December 2016 by Muhimbi


Ever since Muhimbi was founded, we have seen a multitude of new SharePoint releases including SharePoint 2007, 2010, 2013, Online and now SharePoint 2016. It takes a lot of work and effort, but our policy is to never leave a customer behind while making sure there is an upgrade path to whatever is coming next.

As a result, we are very happy to announce the new version of the Muhimbi PDF Converter for SharePoint, now compatible with SharePoint 2016 and Nintex Workflow 2016. In addition to support for these new technologies there are also fixes and improvements including the ability to use the new Workflow Manager to create Site Workflows as well as Reusable Workflows.

This version of the PDF Converter requires software to be installed on the server. Please note that if you have no server access there is always the option to deploy our SharePoint Online App to on-premise versions of SharePoint 2013 and 2016. For details see this blog post.

For those not familiar with the product, the PDF Converter for SharePoint is a lightweight solution that allows end-users to merge, split, watermark, secure, OCR and convert common document types - including InfoPath, AutoCAD, MSG (email) MS-Office, HTML and images - to PDF as well as other formats from within SharePoint using a friendly user interface, workflows or a web service call without the need to install any client side software or Adobe Acrobat. It integrates at a deep level with SharePoint and leverages facilities such as the Audit log, Nintex Workflow, K2 blackpearl, localisation, security and tracing. It runs on SharePoint 2007-2016 & SharePoint Online and is available in English, German, Dutch, French, Traditional Chinese and Japanese. For detailed information check out the product page.
