Is it possible to create ‘combined actions’?

Let’s say I have a button ‘disable customer’, which puts the column [is_enabled] to FALSE. I want this to happen, and then for the app to return to a specific view. Another use case is that an action button makes changes to several columns at the same time.

Bonus question: is it possible to have a window pop up when the action is successful? Like: ‘User disabled’

@Pim_Sauter yes, in the actions you have execute a series of actions… And no, no popups currently, but you can have confirmations… And you can cheat the pop-up by navigating to a form view

You need to set up Actions for each and the second one to be triggered by the change made by the first. You will probably need

a workflow.

Re your Bonus question, yes at the bottom of the Action Editor there is an option to confirm that it has been carried out

@James_W_Rezin boom, I beat you!

@Grant_Stead thanks, missed that one!

@James_W_Rezin the confirmation option asks for user confirmation, what I would like is a confirmation from the app. Thanks Grant for the pointer on how to do that
