User input to URL with out creating a field

  • 1.  User input to URL with out creating a field

    Posted 08-15-2018 15:48
    I would like to prompt a user to add a parameter to a URL Formula.

    Here is an example:

    "https://apimachine.mycompany.com/apps/qbd_update.py?days_back="">https://apidis.devifg.com/apps/qbd_update.py?days_back="">https://apimachine.mycompany.com/apps/qbd_update.py?days_back="; & 
     (prompt user for number of days back) & "&token=" & [Mytoken]

    We have our own API server that handles the call, but it requires us to provide a number for the parameter "Days Back".  I don't want to create a field for that in Quickbase, I just want to prompt the user for that number in the URL.

    Thanks in advance...
