    I am adding a new record from a button on my homepage.  After I add the new record and save, it directs me back to my homepage.  Is there a setting adjustment that would allow me to stay on the record I just created?

    If it's a Dashboard button that you are launching off of, then that very button has options of where to send the user after saving.

    What about formula URLs within the original record? In the browser, QB stays on the new record after copying and saving, but in the app it reverts back to the original record after saving.

    Can you post your formula and explain where you are launching from?

    URLRoot() & "db/" & Dbid() & "?act=API_GenAddRecordForm" & "&_fid_87=" & URLEncode([*field name*])

    Are you launching off a report or a record?

    Sorry, one more question to be sure of your question since you had tagged on to an existing thread.

    You are on record ID 1 and click to open up an add record form and then you save.  Where do you want to land the user? ...  on record 2 or the original record 1?

    I will have to test later today.   It's hard to believe it's landing you back on record 1.

    Mark - really appreciate you checking this. 
    As I mentioned above, not having an issue in the browser, only in the QB app. Upon hitting save in the new record 2, it reverts back to the original record 1.

    OK, thx for the reminder about the issue being in the App.  You did say that, but I missed it.
    I was able to replicate the issue, but I'm not the Product Manager for Mobile :) so I can't say if that is a bug or a feature.  Seems wrong to me.

    Here is a possible work around.

    When you are on a record the More button allows you to "Add Similar".  That will pre-populate an Add Record form with all fields where the field property  is set to

    Copy the value when using "Copy this Mfgr" to add a new Mfgr

    When using this syntax (which mimics that More .. copy button...

    URLRoot() & "db/" & Dbid() & "?a=GenCopyRecord&rid=" & [Record ID#]


    the behaviour in browser and mobile is to land the user on the new record.  But you cannot force values into fields, just copy or don't copy from the original record.

    I would be interested to know if Customer Care say that your issue is a bug or a feature.

    Auto-fill

    Update - I opened up a support case, this is the response I received:
    I have talked with the mobile team about this issue to get you the right answers.
    Typically there is a call at the end of a formula such as "& "&z=" & Rurl()" which basically means 'take me back to where I started'.
    When you remove this on desktop, you will land on the new record you just created, but this feature is just not available on mobile at the moment so you still land on the original record.
    You cannot work around this on mobile as we do not support custom navigation after you press save, it just hasn't been built yet.
    The small bit of good news is that the mobile are aware of this and it is on their radar..

    Appears the functionality in mobile is still to be developed. There was already a similar product feedback entry submitted for this on Aug 2018.

    Thank you for taking the time to close the loop with the community in your ticket. 

    Were  you able to get GenCopyRecord working as a work around for now in you use case?
