Hi all - Is there a way to have an action show up only in the drop down menu (top right) on a given view? Actions are getting crowded…

@Adam_Stone_AppSheet and I were discussing this on Friday. We might need one more “Prominence” designation. We have to think about it a bit.

I may not get a vote, but a big yes please from my side nontheless. It would substantially clean the interface of my app, particularly as I want to generate various types of reports (workflows) from the same row. I imagine this or similar are very common use-cases.

What happens if you mark them as “Display_Inline”?

@praveen Assuming I understand use correctly, the drawbacks are that I have to create an additional column for these actions to avoid important text not appearing in table views. Also, people have to all know what the icons mean as they won’t have labels. I may do this because it’s better than my currently cluttered prominent display, but a dropdown would still be ideal.
