  • 1.  Save and Keep Working button

    I've seen a post similar to mine but the thread was old.

    I am looking to see if there is a way for me to make a Formula - URL or a Formula Rich Text button that will basically mimic the Save & Keep Working button. The roadblock I'm coming across is that I have report link table (from another table, of course) in my form in which a user can select options, put notes in, etc etc. 

    Any time i try to use something like: 
    URLRoot() & "db/" & Dbid() & "?a=dr&dfid=2&rid=" & URLEncode([Record ID#])
    & "&rdr="&URLEncode(URLRoot() & "db/" & Dbid() & "?a=doredirect&z=" & Rurl())

    it's asking me if i'm sure if i want to leave as the changes will be unsaved. Is there any way for me to make a Save & Keep Working button that will save the changes in the report link? Basically, i want to press it and refresh the page as once changes happen on the report link table, i have a pipeline running. The users have to refresh the page itself to see what the pipeline has done.

    In the advanced settings of the table you need to check "Auto save when redirected away from the page." I think that might solve the issue you are talking about.

    Seans solution may work, but if not you can use the new SaveBeforeNavigating class, assuming you have a rich text button as you mentioned. Generic example below.

    var text URL = myURL

    <a class='SaveBeforeNavigating' style=\"text-decoration:none; background: #688EB3; border-radius: 5px; color: #ffffff; display: inline-block; padding: 4px 0px 0px 0px; width:145px; height:22px; text-align: center; text-shadow: none; border: 0px solid #030404; font-size: 12px \"href='"
    & $URL
    & "'>Button Words Here</a>"

    Unfortunately, both suggestions did not work for me.

    i have the table i'm using and the table where the report link is coming form to "auto save when redirected" but it did not work.

    i paired the above with the SaveBeforeNavigating class and also did not work :|
    edit: both still asks me if i'm sure i want to leave the page as the changes will not be saved

    Can you post your button code? And are you trying on desktop or mobile?
