Redirect form after save

By: Vladi Gubler | Comments [4] | Category: Products | 3/20/2017

Hi,

New feature in Ultimate Forms: you can now configure where the Edit form redirects when you click on Save. By default, the form redirects back to the list view. Now, you are able to configure the target of redirection to the view (default), edit form or display form. Additionally, you can configure whether to add a new button to the form (Save & Edit or Save & View) or just to use the regular Save button. When you use the regular button and redirect back to Edit form, the second time you save, you will be redirected to the view, to prevent users from getting stuck in an infinite loop.

One of the common reasons to use this feature is integration of actions. Actions are executed on Save, so the user might need to perform additional data entry based on the results of the action execution. Note that in this scenario it's best to set the action to execute Synchronously, to make sure it completes before the form reloads.

The new features is accessible under General Settings section of Tabs and tab permissions.

NOTE: the feature is already added to the app version and will be coming to on-premises version in the next release.

What about this same functionality on the Add Form? It would be grate to add a new item and come back to the form after the action to populate the child list has fired and then show the associated items in the Associated Items column on the form

Walt: in the app version, we cannot know the item ID to be able to redirect from the New form, as our code runs solely in the browser. In the on-prem version, we are probably going to support this though.

Is there an option that when you select Save, it could redirect to a specific path?

Stephanie: SharePoint forms support Source parameter in the URL, whatever URL you provide there, that's where the form will redirect upon save.
