New Bug Encountered: Advance forms automatically Not working

I’ve enabled Advance forms automatically.
My first column is [NFC1] and it is set to required. When I open the form, the NFC Scanner is active and I can scan the NCF chip. Perfekt!
When I edit the form, the first column [NFC1] will be hidden. Instead of that I see the second column [NFC2]. This one is also required. But the NFC scanner will not be active. I have to press the NFC-sign first.

Is this a bug, or is “Advance forms automatically” not working in form while editing?

Adding @Adam to investigate further

Hi @Fabian, I was unable to debug the app due to firewall restrictions of the source database. Please make sure all of the IPs in this article have been whitelisted:

Sorry @Adam. Could you try it again? We have added the IP addresses.

Hi Adam. Did you have the opportunity to look at my App?

@Fabian Hi Fabian, @Adam is currently on vacation, but he will look into this as soon as he gets back.

@Harry @adam
We would like to start using the App next week. Can you take a look at this “Bug”?

Focusing the first entry in the form was an older behavior that predated “advance forms automatically” and doesn’t depend on it. But it looks like it was applied specifically to adding new rows and not to edits. I think we supposed that in an add you are more likely to be going through the whole form in sequence, while in an edit you are usually intending just to update one or more specific columns and there’s generally no reason to assume the first field is one of them.

But this is an odd case where you have an existing row with a blank required field, and at that point it’s obvious the user will need to update it even in an edit. So I think we can apply the autofocus in that situation. Look for that to take effect within a day or two @Fabian.

@Adam Hi Adam. I found another potential Bug relating the Advance forms automatically.
In a Form that has it’s Child Inline I can add a Child. My first Column is a dropdown and it should open immediately. But it doesn’t.

@Harry @Adam Any input?
