New Responsive form designer - "Preview" is worthless?

I've been building forms in the New Responsive designer for months.  Once you get above the most basic complexity with show/hide rules, the Preview tab ceases to work properly.  I'm forced to publish and test in production because the Preview tab doesn't reflect the correct operation of show/hide rules (and maybe other rules, I wouldn't know because I can't use the thing).

 

It's very frustrating because I love the Responsive designer otherwise and would love to not have to test my forms in production.

 

If the previewer doesn't reflect reality 100% of the time, it's totally worthless because I can't tell if it's an issue with my rule or the previewer and I have to publish in order to find out.

Re: New Responsive form designer - "Preview" is worthless?

I have New Responsive designer forms with 50+ show/hide rules implementing multi-language support and many other purposes with tons of variables and complex expressions. Rarely has the preview not worked as expected.

Whenever the form is truly complex then a more formal promotion process is used by maintaining a true development & test site separate from a production site. When an update is ready for promotion from development & test into production, I use "ShareGate:Desktop for Nintex" to clone the form(s) and document & list libraries, etc. from one site to the other. This way during testing a bunch of changes spanning multiple forms and workflows, it's easier for the users and developers to compare and validate the changes when they can see the current and future release.

I don't know what I'm doing wrong then, all I need to break the previewer is a couple simple show/hide rules before it stops working as the rules indicate it should. If I publish, all is working correctly.

Hi @calmaguer,

 

Sorry to hear you are finding the preview frustrating. Have you logged a support call that I could look into? It would be interesting to see a video to understand what is happening.

 

If you like, shoot me an email at euan.gamble@nintex.com so we can discuss further.


Cheers,

Euan
