i'd like to be able to add child records to a parent record without having to save the parent record that i'm currently editing.


i'm using a meeting tracker app and would like to be able to add action items while i have the main meeting record open. the goal is to have a button that i can press from the meeting (parent record) that will open a new window for quick editing, then i can edit the child record quickly, then save the child record and go right back to the meeting record to continue the call and continue adding child records as needed.

No problem.  This is a new feature on a recent release.  Go to the Advanced Properties for the Parent table and check the box for


Save parent record automatically when a child record is created

Can this be made default behavior for creating a new table?
