  • 1.  Form Refresh button

    Posted 06-30-2021 12:10

    Hello,

    I need a button on the form that will refresh or reload the form.
    An Automation is run from a previous button click and the page needs to be refreshed to reflect the updated workflow options (buttons).

    Using a browser refresh technique for the timing being but the business users have requested a button.

    Try this as a formula URL button. 

    URLRoot() & "db/" & Dbid() & "?a=doredirect&z=" & Rurl()

    Hi Mark,

    The formula url works fine if we are editing a field within the table and then clicking the button. I get a message that "your changes may not be saved" if the only change I made is on a Child record (embedded in parent edit form). Is there anyway we can avoid getting this message?

    That is a very valid and interesting question but I don't have a good answer for it. I did test and was able to replicate the issue. I suggest that you post a new question perhaps referencing this thread in hopes that it will get by noticed by someone who will have a better answer for us.
