Background: We are using SharePoint 2013 and the portal has very minimal workflows (if any) created so far. We are in the process of getting Nintex.
Initial Problem: My designer gives me the error:
"The option for the Sharepoint 2013 workflow platform is not available because the workflow service is not configured on the server. Please contact your system administrator. "
Steps taken so far: Reached out to our server administrators and were told "only supports SharePoint 2010 for Nintex workflows; SharePoint 2013 workflows are not available. If you are looking for additional capability beyond the 2010 style workflows, we would suggest taking a look at Nintex."
So I guess my question is:
will 2010 workflows work on SharePoint 2013 if made them in designer 2013?
Would this be affecting why a 2010 workflow would not be working in a 2013 environment? (ie not sending emails out)
