Button on Homepage to toggle another homepage

  • 1.  Button on Homepage to toggle another homepage

    Posted 03-05-2020 16:18
    Please forgive me, but I am a relatively new user. 

    Would it be possible on the homepage, to add a button that would toggle you to go to another homepage?

    My use case is that I have active schools, and I have schools in development. They all need to reside in the same table, but I would like a different view on the Homepage for people that work in development, and a different homepage for those that work in active schools. That being said, I have a huge user base that works in both. This is why I would like them to be able to switch between Homepages. 

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated

    No Problem,

    You can make a button bar element or add a button to an existing Button bar and one of the options is to display a page.  Post back if you are still stuck.

    Ryan it seems to me that you are talking about the home page of a table rather than dashboards, is that the case or was Marks answer the right one for you? If Mark got it right then feel free to ignore this message.

    If talking about table home pages(the first report shown to the user on the table) you would have to do this by having the people in different roles. You can then set each role to be shown a different report. This is done in the table settings under User Interface > Table home page.

    Austin, you are right, Ryan was referring to Table Home Page.

    Ryan, you can make a formula URL field to display as a column on the report shown on Table Home Page.  The formula would display a Report, presumably the"Other" report.  And then on the "Other" report you would show a different button to show the Original Report.

    So that will work, except if course the same button is repeated all the way down the report, so a little messy, but you can perhaps show the button as a small link so it won't look too gaudy.

    The formula for a formula URL button would be

    URLRoot() & "db/" & dbid() & "?a=q&qid=99"

    Replace the 99 with the qid that you see in the URL when you run the report that you want to jump to.
