Hello, I have users asking if there is a way they can get a confirmation message or view when they have submitted a form entry - so something like - Thank you your form has been submitted etc.
Hi @supporteh Maybe you could add an Action on form save to take you to another detail view that has your message .
Sometimes you can also do that directly with an action popup after the form is saved… like with a LINKTOVIEW & confirmation message.
Hey @Aleksi could you please brief this action and view part, to get the success message pop-up after submitting the form.
Would you like to open a pop-up with a small message or do you want to open a bigger view with a longer description like detail view?
I would like a pop-up message saying “thanks… changes made successfully” something like this.
I made a small sample app… called “Confirmation message”. You can find it from www.appsheet.com/portfolio/531778. This is done with an action.
Somehow this is not working to me. No message will Pop up.
Maybe you expression is wrong?
I removed that expression. It was from another app
Thanks again @Aleksi. Your sample inspired me
Yeap, that’s the idea
I use a one-line table with an image I want to use as a prompt.
I set up a Gallery View for this table and have named it Saved.
When the user clicks Save then the App opens the Record Saved view.
I use the Finish View and select the above form’s name from the drop down.
Might not be the most elegant solution but works quite well.
I’m not sure if you would take time to read my email, but I’ve been sitting for 3 hours and I couldn’t figure it out, so I tried my luck.
I followed your confirmation message app but it doesn’t work.
Here’s what I did. Behavior > Actions tab > Add New Action > Set the Do this to Grouped: execute a sequence of actions > turned on the Needs Confirmation > Wrote the message.
The Google Sheet file is being updated with new form entries but I couldn’t get the Thank you message pop-up.
Can you help me out Sir? What am I missing?
Create a new Action. Select your table in the For a record in this Table. Then>
This should work.
You need to set that action as an Event action so it will be triggered when the form is saved. That you can find from your form view’s definition.
Can someone help me, I used the method above and I was able to get the confirmation popup however I have an option “no” & “Close”.
I just want the Close option and I don’t want the no button, am I missing something?
Please go to UX --> LOCALIZE. Here you can change the wording of “Confirm” and “No” depending on the view you are in.
So instead of hardcoding, please use an expression.
The expression should look like this:
SWITCH( CONTEXT("View"), "Your_Form_View_Name","", "No" )
This will change the wording of “No” to “” (nothing) in this one Form View.
Having issues trying to figure out how to make it work.
From what I see you have done the following:
- Set up an action. Selected “Grouped: execute a sequence of actions” but did not add any actions
- Under “Behaviour” of the Action mentioned in #1 you turned on “Needs Confirmation?” and typed in a message in “Confirmation Message”
Have I missed anything?
- Add the newly created action as the “Form Saved” Behavior for the appropriate UX Form View.
Thank you, It worked.
Just need to follow @Fabian method to change the wording.
