How do Action Buttons Work?

If you've ever noticed a ?a= in the URL/address bar while working in Quickbase, you've witnessed an action!

What comes after that action prompt is the action. Sometimes it's as simple as "nwr", which you'll see when you add a new record. Other times it can look a little overwhelming, such as "API_GenAddRecordForm&_fid_ 48=6&z=f7j" (or similar), which you see when you add a child record to a parent.

The key to tapping into these actions is knowing what they are and how to construct the URL string.

This toolbox of actions for buttons (or links) in Quickbase will help you do just that!
