Add button bar (on a page) to a specific table form

    Is it possible to have a page button bar execute a specific table form? This is what I'm trying to do:

    Desired Buttons
    Add New House - This button would point to the New House Form
    Add Security Payment - This button would point to the New Security Payment Form

    Thanks in advance for any assistance!

    Are you trying to have a button on a form or or a dashboard page?

    Dashboard page. Unless I'm missing something, I don't see an option to link that button to a specific form.

    Right, so you will need to make a tiny bit of code.

    Do an Add Record action on that table and observe the URL

    https://mycompany.quickbase.com/db/babababab?a=nwr

    Copy that and then paste it into a new dashboard button which is type URL

    Then edit what you just pasted and suffix it like

    https://mycompany.quickbase.com/db/babababab?a=nwr&dfid=10

    You get the form ID my looking at your list of forms.

    The suffix says "and da Form ID = 10"  That is how I remember it.

    Now .... where do you want the user to go after they save ... if you just do that they will land on the record again, but not on that Form ID# version.  They will get the default form for their role.

    Thanks Mark!
