You could if you build a custom formula-URL field which essentially will "save" the record and redirect you to the same record in edit mode; but you would have to display this on your Form Layout and make sure you use this custom button instead of the default green save button at the top right of your form layout.

I already created the button and it works great but my problem now is I dont know how to change the label in my button, I cannot see any option in the field properties that i can change the label on the button.

In the field properties you should see a section called "Display". Within that section there is a text box called "Link text" that you can specify any name for the button you would like. Hope that helps.

I was watching in youtube "Using Formula URLs" and it seems its the old quickbase field properties thats why I cannot see it in the new field properties. Its okay now thanks for the support.

@Roderick, may I ask what formula you used to create the "save and  continue" button?
