The People’s Choice category honored the app that received the most votes from SharePoint Conference attendees during the voting period, which lasted from Feb. 18 to Feb. 28, 2014. Nintex Workflow for Office 365 was named the winner after the category was narrowed down to four finalists chosen by voters from out of the more than 200 total contest entries. Nintex Forms for Office 365 was also a finalist in the People’s Choice category.
The Most Downloaded SharePoint App category was based on the objective number of user downloads from the entire Microsoft SharePoint store during the voting period. The Most Interesting SharePoint Scenario category was selected by a panel of Microsoft judges, which based its decision on two criteria: 75 percent on the app’s relevance to the platform and 25 percent on app performance.
