Why does calendar appear on both actions? These are the two options.

Then what appears when clicking on calendar and when you click on schedule.

Has this really confused all you great people? Surely not. :slight_smile:

You have CALENDAR and SCHEDULE actions configured to Display prominently. Why do you have these actions if you also have navigation elements in your gallery view?

I had them prominent as that is where i want them in the view.

I just couldn’t work out why calendar was appearing in both. What would be the best way to do the link. I always think there is one process too many. You click on schedule to open the button to click on schedule again. Is there away to eliminate the extra process and open with one click?

@Ian_Townson Ah, okay.

I think the model AppSheet promotes is to use actions to affect change, rather than as simple navigation aids. For navigation, the model appears to be menu entries and the three buttons along the bottom of the screen.

If your app has only two functions, calendar and schedule, and you always want those options visible to the user, I would recommend using the screen-bottom buttons. But this is based on a very superficial impression of what you’re trying to do. If you’d care to elaborate on your goal, I might have other suggestions
