Go back action doesn't work in browser

This is really important to me because my users cant work in the browser with this bug

My App/Pages support link:

Describe the bug:
Go back action doesn’t work in browser only when needs to switch tabs (works in editor and in mobile)

Expected behavior:
“Go back” should work the same on all devices and move screens between tabs

How to replicate:
Create 2 tabs - > create action to go from 1 tab to the other - > create action to go back/
In Glide editor - Works
On iPhone - Works
In Browser full screen - Doesn’t work

Any news on this?

Is this in the to do list to be fixed?
Please let me know if there is an estimated time?
I understand this has to do with the infrastructure of App’s tabs and screen as appose to Pages but I have active users using this app…

Hi @Lin_Altshuler

Can you confirm this is not working for you?

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work towards resolving this issue. If you have any further questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.

I’m not a expert, but maybe you can try relinking. I visit your app, it didn’t go back, so it’s not the browser problem, but sometimes you link it weirdly, let me see the editor mode


Has this issue been resolved? For me the Go back action doesn’t respond in any way - not at the “building site” (PC) and not when testing on mobile phone. I’m fairly new to this so could be that I’m doing something wrong - but are doing as shown in Glide Docs. When choosing Go to tab action it works as it should.

Best regards

Can you show us how you’re setting it up? Is it just a “Go back” action or are there any other actions inside a chain?

It is only a “Go back” action - as Glide Docs show.

I use Button block - one action is “Go to tab” and for the other action I (mostly) want to “Go back”. This is throughout the whole app.

Can you give us the link to your app and tell us how to reproduce?
