Customizing Home Page Button (Return)

  • 1.  Customizing Home Page Button (Return)

    Posted 24 days ago
    When making a button on a form (to create a new record or otherwise) you can add in where you would like to return. Is it possible to do this with home page buttons?

    Use case:
    When creating a button on a home page for a new record, when in the app it's easy - select new record and QuickBase gives you options on where to return. However, if I am in a different app than the table resides, I am presuming I will need to use a URL for the button to create the new record. Is there something I can add to the end of the URL to force it to return to the place of my choosing?

    You need to suffix the button with the &NextURL syntax

    You need to use a temporary field somewhere to get this code created for you with the URL encoding and the table iDs but the code would be

    var text URL to add = jhsfkjhnfdsnlvdknsvd;
    var text URLReturn = hjwjfelnlkncas;
    $URL
    & "&NextURL=" & URLEncode($URLReturn)
