Are you using URL & Rich Text Formula fields?
Now, they're built into the field settings!
In this video, I demonstrate how to use 3 AMAZING new URL & button features.
What are the new URL & Button features?
- Open target in popup (URL & URL Formulas)
- Embed as iframe on forms (URL & URL Formulas)
- Save Before Navigating class (Rich Text Formulas)
Key Points to Remember:
- The popup window will default to the current window's size.
- Not all webpages can be displayed in an iframe and other iframe settings are not accessible (such as scrollbars).
- Use the class='SaveBeforeNavigating' in your rich text anchor tags to prompt to save the page before it navigates to the target.
- Check the Advanced settings option to "Auto save when redirected away from the page." to bypass the save prompt.
Formula from the Rich Text field:
"<a class='Vibrant Success SaveBeforeNavigating' & href='" & [URL] & "' target='_blank'>" & [Label] &"</a>"
