Allow for action "Data: execute an action on a set of rows" to show as Table Overlay when NOT row level

I thought there was already a Feature Request for this but I didn’t find one. If anyone know of its existence, please let me know.


There are times when we might want to execute an action on a KNOWN set of rows based on a users click of a button. In some cases the ideal placement of this button is as an overlay action on a Table view.

Currently, the “Data: execute an action on a set of rows” action is not allowed to be shown as an overlay action - even when it is NOT a row level action.

However, the action “App: go to another view within this app” action WILL show as an overlay action IF it is NOT a row level action - it will show at BOTH the Table view level and on each row’s Detail view. If it happens to be a row level action, then it ONLY shows on each row’s Detail view.

This request is to treat “Data: execute an action on a set of rows” actions in the same manner as “App: go to another view within this app” actions with regards to whether it can be shown as an overlay action on a Table view - i.e. conditional on that the internal implementation of the action is NOT considered a row level action…

Good request. I’d vote for it if I could.
