Convert Classic/ Old Responsive Designer into New Responsive Designer
It would help our company a lot to be able to convert the Classic (Both Nintex 2013 and O365) and Old Responsive Designer ( Nintex O365) in New Responsive Designer for the Nintex Forms O365.
We have hundreds of Classic Nintex Forms (2013) that we will need to move in SPO. It would help a lot to be able to convert them rather than creating them from scratch.When recreating from scratch is involved then it is highly possible that other tool is considered, and not Nintex.
I understand you are working on adding the missing functionality in the New Responsive Designer for Nintex O365 as well and I imagine that all improvements will go first to the new Responsive Designer, please correct me if I am wrong.
Also will the Old Responsive Designer and the Classic Designer disappear eventually?
We have begun preliminary investigation into this feature. Initially, we are hoping to convert Old Responsive to New Responsive.
I can appreciate your position. I will send you an email so we can discuss.
I have a ticket open with some items that are not working right in the existing Responsive designer that I've been told will not be addressed. My options are to 1) live with a product with issues that I've paid to work properly, 2) spend my companies time and money to upgrade all of our old Responsive designs to the new instead of working on other value-added project or 3) start looking to migrate away from Nintex. My decision hinges on when the in-product migration will be ready. Given there does not seem to be support for the old version I would expect it to be a priority. Can you tell me when it will be available? Thanks.
@euan gamble that is fine that the control layout would be wonky, that's not a big issue as we can re arrange it.. what we really care about is not having to literally recreate the entire form. if the conversion can get us to step 3-4 then we can do the rest. but having to restart from scratch is just a pain, one that most are not going to be willing to use a new tool because of.

Stacking fields wouldnt be an issue the main thing is any repeating sections etc would need to have the same values so when you look at a previous form it renders correctly and shows all data
I would expect it would move across all controls, rules and variables.
Mike Browning commented
I would fine with auto conversion where every control is stacked under the next as long as it also brought over every rule, formatting change, etc. along with those controls.
Is this feature available yet? I like the responsive forms, but don't really like using a mixture of both types of forms.
David Stanton commented
It would be great if there was a way to go from classic to responsive. However I would be happy if there was a way to at least be able to create a responsive form without having to delete the current form.

We also need this feature for Nintex Forms 2013 on-premise.
Nikole, are you able to try the responsive designer? I am interested and have the same concern as you.
Amaresh Lele commented
This should be an obvious choice.
Why do your customers have to request the obvious? A migration tool should be designed it's a no brainer and a slap in the face to existing customers that it hasn't.

Need this big time. Can't use responsive forms otherwise.
I have forms i am working on in the classic designer. I would like to start working on them in the responsive designer. Also, any changes that need to be made to old forms, it would be nice to use the new responsive designer.
