Object line type “Button”
New object line type Button introduces an option to add to object / form a button, which is dedicated to trigger linked object action defined for the object.
The Button is a simple control changing its value from 0 to 1 when pushed.
Usefulness of the button is properly explained when the button is configured together with any existing object action in a way that button triggers the respective object action when pushed.
It is possible to set a confirmation when clicked on the button. A dialog window with defined message will pop up with a confirmation. Object action that is linked to this button will not be executed until it is confirmed.
Confirmation can be set in ObjectLine properties:
which works the same as Hints. When there is at least one letter set, confirmation pops up every time.
You will certainly find plenty of cases where to effectively find a use for this feature.
To use the object line type button, you need to:
- Place the button on the object
- Define the object action you want to trigger with the button including the object action parameters
- Set the object action condition in a way, that object action will only be triggered when the value of the object line with button equals 1.
- Assign the object action to desired workflow step.
Further to this you may set up button color, validations and labels.
