Saving a record

When I save it reroutes me to the previous screen instead of the saved record. I'd like for it to stay on the record each time without having to go to the dropdown for save a keep working every time. Can i default it to this save option? This is the New Form

  • It's doing the same thing for us, we really dislike this behavior. If anyone knows how to change it, it would be much appreciated.

  • I presume you are using the add Child button which is sitting on top of the embedded report of children on the parent form.  

    One option is to edit that report element so that it does not show the add child button.

    so deselect 

    Show create record button

    Then put the add child button on the form directly and change the code to comment out the last part so that the code it will look like this.  

    URLRoot() & "db/" & [_DBID_CHILDREN] & "?a=API_GenAddRecordForm&_fid_7=" & URLEncode ([Record ID#])

    //& "&z=" & Rurl()

    That way,  when you save the child record it will land the user in View mode on the child record
