Query user on form drop down change

    I've been digging around trying to work out how to create a pop up to ask for a user response, I have found bits of what I need to do (URL formula to the form etc) but can't quite get the whole thing.


    What I'd like is if a field on a form changes state (user selects a choice from a drop down), I'd like to have a pop up to query, "would you like to do x?". A "Yes" response would open another form in another tab and a "No" response would simply return them to the current form.

    Any help would be much appreciated!

    HI Mark, we have the exact same question, we would like to follow and see if we get an answer.

    Have you seen this post? Not exactly what you're looking for, but could likely be repurposed: https://community.quickbase.com/quickbase/topics/dialog-box-ius8t09629i74

    If I was being asked to do this natively, I would suggest a formula text field which displays a Message on the screen with a corresponding set of response buttons which can either Save the record and redirect the User to another Form (same or another table) or to essentially Save & keep working (save the record, populate the response checkbox and redirect the user to the same record in edit mode).  From both buttons, a checkbox field can be populated to indicate that the user has responded to the first question; and thus on future views; that form message and buttons would not display again.

    I think this may be where my lack of experience is showing, I can see how to display messages in the dynamic form rules and I've read up on URL buttons, but I can't see how to combine a message with two buttons and my google-fu is failing me.

    Do you have any pointer page that would guide me in the right direction?
