I have a comments table that is referenced to a main registration table and is “part of”.

Is it possible to create an action button for the comments detail to add a new comment/row?

I tried but the button doesn’t appear.

I know the user can go back one screen and click New from the inline table but if they are already reading a comment it’s so much easier to just let them click a button on current comment detail view.

Did you try this A new action with

Action name: Add comment

For a record of this table: comments table

Do this: App: go to another view within this app


LINKTOFORM(“Comment form view”, “Registration ID”,

[_ThisRow].[Registration ID])

Action icon: Plus

Prominence: Display overlay

@Tammi_Canelli See the “add comment” action here for an example: https://www.appsheet.com/samples/How-to-link-between-different-parts-of-an-app?appGuidString=102df0e5-49b9-4342-8888-74f2e8db9eb8
