"Hide Screen" impacts "Find Use"

Hi, I just discovered that when we hide a screen in the layout, this disables the content of the “Find Use” view in the database.

This can lead to delete many columns by error… as I just did :slight_smile:
Just sharing so that others don’t make the same mistake.

Screen: hidden
image

=> “Find use”: empty

=> If Screen turned into visible → “Find use”: filled

Just curious, in which cases would you want to hide a tab and then make it visible later?

for example for backup screens, or work in progress etc

Is there a reason you don’t use publishing control?

I’ve done this for a few cases where you might have a screen (tab) that’s only shown as a result of completing an action sequence.

E.g. submit a form, route to a hidden “thank you” screen.
