Hi Ashley. Super easy. Instead of choosing New Record for the for the kind of button, choose URL instead. The URL you paste in should be the URL that appears in your browser search bar when you're adding a new record to the table. Copy and paste that and then add the following to the end: &dfid=. After the equal sign, type the form ID number you want the button to point to. If you're not sure what the form ID number is, go to table settings > forms, and you'll see a number next to the form. That's the number to use after the equal sign.
