@JykkeDaMan , first ensure that you have the beta app installed. From any XML dashboard, click the 3 dots in the top right corner and you should see an option that says "Open in Dashboard App (beta)". This will open a new dashboard in the beta app using the new framework. Note that the converter is also in beta, so you may not see all features converted successfully at this stage.

Maybe i'm on the wrong version of Splunk, but in my local instance of Splunk, i have the beta app installed, but none of my xml dashboards have the "open in Dashboard app(beta)" option in the 3-dots dropdown.
What version of Splunk are you running?

@ramgnisiv this is only supported on Enterprise 7.2.7 and above unfortunately! This is why the app is only marked compatible with 7.3 and 8.0 on Splunkbase.
