Jump to the homepage from Form

    I have a button in each of my records/instances forms within a table. Is there a way to link that button (which is in the main form) to the homepage of that specific table. Basically, I want to be able to click a button in the form and it will take me to the homepage.

    np
    Make a URL formula field

    URLroot() & "db/" & dbid() & "?a=td

    That just took me to the list of records. I want it to take me to main homepage. I apologize, the main homepage is in a different table. But it is in the generic home for each app, but a specific location within the home button.

    I thought that you want to go to the Table Home page.  Where do you want to go?  Do you want to go to the main Dashboard of the Application?

    Yes the main dashboard of the Application. Calling it the homepage was the wrong terminology.

    Basically, can a button in a form (when clicked) take me to a specific page within the application dashboard?

    Try this
    There is no formula to display the app itself, surprisingly, so you need to hard code it like

    "mycompany.quickbase.com/db/xxxxxx?a=showpage&pageid=6"

    You can obtain the pageid off he settings and then Pages.

    I am getting errors. What does mycompany get filled in with, the actual company name? What goes in the place of the xxxxxx?

    Go to the main Dashboard of your app and copy the URL up to the ?  

    Then after the question mark

    a=showpage&pageid=6"

    for example
    "gesco.quickbase.com/db/bd6kyiwtz?a=ShowPage&pageid=16

    it doesn't like the "escservicesinc" part in front of the ".quickbase" part. The error I get is "The argument list of the function escservicesinc must begin with a left parenthesis."
