I have two forms in one of my tables named: FY16 & FY17.

I'm trying to specify the form which I want used by specific roles and reports using the Forms settings page.   I can change the Add, View, Edit form but when I try to change the Grid Edit the drop down box keeps reverting back to FY17.   

The same behavior happens when I try to override by report.  So for example, I want a report with date from FY16 to use the FY16 form for add, edit, view and grid edit.  I can not get any option in the grid edit drop down to stick but FY17.

And... when any particular report goes into grid edit it seems to be requiring fields that aren't on the original report...  (again - perhaps using te FY17 form??)

There is a bug that someone should report to QuickBase. Maybe it can be you.

That Grid edit drop down is flaky and browser dependent as to how it behaves.  In many cases your change does in fact take effect, but the screen indicates that it did not.  So try another browser and also get out of that screen and then come back to it and you may find that it really did "take".
