I’m trying to create a link in my form that when clicked will show a detail view of another table.

Here’s the context: I want to have a button or a link that when pressed will give instructions to the person keying data in, so that they dont make mistakes. Because the instructions are long, it needs to be parked in a detail view.

How can I do that?

@Felix_Tay Normally the way to link between different parts of your app is to create an action (Behavior > Actions) and use a deep link. Examples here: appsheet.com - Deep links - How to link between different parts of an app

However, there’s no good way to put a deep link into a form view. Adding @Adam_Stone_AppSheet, since he may be interested in this feature request.

As a workaround, I’d recommend splitting your form into multiple pages, and then having your instructions on a separate page in the form. Examples of multi-page forms:
