Extended Button Functionality

Would great if the Button functionality could be used to create a new row or value.
The Business Case is that I need to track various games stats for players. Clicking a button would add a row to a sheet with pre-determined and/or dynamic values.

Great idea! Where do the dynamic values come from?

Like the Form currently uses those “hidden” fields to populate a comments table. For example If a player scores a goal there would be a button that would hold a constant value that relates to a goal (ID=1) and then the dynamic values would a PlayerID and/or a GameID.

We were thinking that maybe a Form with no visible components could auto-submit without opening—what do you think of that? Too tricky?

We are also working on form confirmation so you would get feedback.

That sounds like it could work as long as you could still enter in a “constant” value. The form submission confirmation sounds good too. I know it sounds like the form submission will be here in the very near future will there be an ability to suppress the form confirmation?

I thought of this just yesterday. I needed a button press to serve as an interaction. I ended up adding a form with a check box and a true/false statement in the sheet.
