Don't Forget to Optimize with Action Buttons

Download the Action Button Toolbox
Action buttons allow you to optimize your workflows, cutting out clicks and putting information at the point of need!

In this video, we’ll build three different Action Buttons and I’ll share a toolbox that will enable you to build countless others to suit your needs.

1. Save & Go Home
2. Open Documents in a New Tab
3. Open the Latest Child Record

Along with building these buttons, I'll show you several handy tricks like...

πŸŽ‰  How to add and update fields directly from your forms
πŸŽ‰  How to 'force' a record to automatically save when navigating away
πŸŽ‰  Where to find a table alias
πŸŽ‰  How to 'lookup' information from a child record for use on the parent

If you haven’t already you can download the Action Button Toolbox for everything you need to make these action buttons (and more)!
