Can I display the button for an action in a view that shows another table than the one the action is related to?

Details: In my Recipe app, I added shopping cart functionality via a Y/N toggle for each recipe, this is then mirrored via virtual column in the list of recipe ingredients. A filtered slice pulls all “Y” entries as “shopping list”. I then created an action to set all Y/N toggles back to “N” to clear the shopping list. But the button for this action is only displayed in the recipe detail view. I would like it to show in the shopping list view.

Yes, it’s the action type that executed on a set of rows…

Thanks! Took me a while to wrap my head around the referenced actions, but I think I got it now.

Now I just need to figure out if I can show this button on a view that shows a slice, not an actual table…

@Stefanie_Dietz yes, actions apply to the tables, and all of that tables accosted slices

But how can I make the button actually show up in that slice’s view?

So far I’ve only managed to let it appear in the detail view of a shopping list article, but I’d need it in the top-level table view of that slice.

@Stefanie_Dietz actions don’t sit on tables since they typically apply to a single record… Your should be able to long press and access the multiple select boxes…
