How to do multiple steps in an action when the first action goes to another app carrying data over to the other app and go to the next step in the action and/or go back to the initiating app?

Thank you

@Jason_Spicer If the two apps are AppSheet apps, you can use deep links. See this article and example app

If the other app is not an AppSheet app, then I’m not sure. Deep links - How to link between different parts of an app appsheet.com

I believe the first action you will probably trigger from the button. Maybe with a LINKTOFORM deep link. It will open the form in your other app. When you save that form, you can use option “Event action” in that form view. It will trigger a “GO back” action.

Thanks Aleksi, I kinda got it working but when I have the go back action in the event action I get the message “Please confirm, Local changes have not been synced. Proceed anyway?” I tried changing syncing options on both apps but still shows up when saving the form.
