Custom Button Working on Browser/PC - Not on Mobile?

Hey Community,

I made a simple button so that external web users could submit records into my table. It works great on PC but does not seem to save the record on mobile. On mobile it just does the redirect. This caused some issues because I thought it was working - when really it wasn't submitting any of the details the user just entered.

How can I update my button to make sure it's saving the record on mobile then redirecting to that other webpage?

URLRoot()&"db/"&Dbid()&"?a=dbpage&pagename=thankyou.html&ifv=20"

  • I have not tested but can you test and tell me if it works.

    Rich Text formula button.



    "<a class='Vibrant Success SaveBeforeNavigating' href='" & URLRoot()&"db/"&Dbid()&"?a=dbpage&pagename=thankyou.html&ifv=20"1'> Save</a>"

      Thank you so much. Is this a known issue with buttons and mobile forms? 

      I tried to place your formula into my URL formula field and it gave me some errors about too many characters at the end of the string. I shrunk it down a little to not include the >Save< Section at the end.

      It accepted my formula - once again - seems to work on the PC and not in mobile. this time it's doesn't redirect me on mobile. the button doesn't work at all. 

      "<a class='Vibrant Success SaveBeforeNavigating' href='" & URLRoot()&"db/"&Dbid()&"?a=dbpage&pagename=thankyou.html&ifv=20" 

      Thank you again for your help :)

        Are you using a field type of formula Rich text?
