Mobile Apps - Preview Form

You can preview mobile forms designed with Nintex Forms directly on a mobile device. Previewed forms are visible exclusively to the designer who has edited the form, and are displayed under the [Preview] category in Nintex Mobile. By submitting a previewed form, no data is actually transferred to the server. Preview ends when the form is submitted.

Each device has its own set of features, such as platform and screen size which will influence the display of the form. The Nintex Mobile apps run in native code for the specific mobile device and are optimized for that mobile platform. Therefore, the best way to preview your forms is by using the Nintex Mobile apps for each of the supported platforms.

When designing a form for mobile using Nintex Forms, ensure you have each of the following actions completed successfully:

  1. Using Nintex Forms, select a layout for mobile: either Nintex Mobile Phone and Nintex Mobile Tablet, or both.
  2. Design your form for the specific layout, and don’t forget the optimization tips for mobile forms.
  3. Assign a category to your form, and an icon and name/description if you wish to override the default values.
  4. Save and publish your mobile form. The form is immediately visible in the Nintex Mobile apps, just sign in to the app and access the Forms page (or, if you are already signed in, refresh the Forms page view).

Re: Mobile Apps - Preview Form

So (and I'll tag ‌ here because why not), what do you check first if your preview never appears on your mobile device? 

Here are some things I have looked at and tried:

- Refreshing the forms page

- Deleting local data

- Turning the app on and off again  

- Ensuring I am logged in as my corporate account which is also the account that created the form

Is it in forms limbo!?

Re: Mobile Apps - Preview Form

Do you have any forms published from that site that appear at all? Just want to prove connection first.

Re: Mobile Apps - Preview Form

Yeah - that's the other weird thing - none of my forms appear. So I guess part of my question should've been, "what do I check when none of my forms are appearing even though I'm 100% logged in as me and this has historically worked, just not on this current device"

Re: Mobile Apps - Preview Form

So definitely an access issue (10 out of 10 rule). Is it online or onprem? If online, try the tenant URL and not a site collection. Also on the device, try to view the same list in the browser.
