Independent screen configuration is missing

Hey so I’ve been trying to use the independent screen configuration for my lists so I can make lists components different from each other. I only have a few items on my list so it isn’t much of a hassle. But unfortunately, I can’t find the independent screen configuration anywhere. It’s not where the guide said it should be. I’m not sure if it’s a feature that no longer available or if I’m missing something but it’s really frustrating.

I followed this guide: Glide • Independent Screen Configuration

It is a feature that’s only available with the older (Classic) Apps product.
It’s not clear yet whether or not it will be added to the newer product, but I suspect not.

However, you can get the same behaviour by using a custom action on your collection, with a separate conditional branch for each collection item.

How do I go about doing that? I’m new to this whole thing. I’m not even sure what condition to use to get the effect I want. What steps do I need to take? I’m making a list of companies that sell different items and I want to use separate collection lists for each vendor. But when I change the collection source, its the same source for every vendor. What conditions would I need to use to change that?

If you have an ever-growing list then I don’t think it would work for your case, but basically what Darren meant is create a custom action, add branches of logic like:

  • If “Company Name” is “Company A” then show new screen > this item.
  • If “Company Name” is “Company B” then show new screen > this item.

It will give you a new screen to configure for each company.

Does each screen differ that much though? If it’s not much, I would advise using the same details screen and use conditional visibility.

Okay thanks. I’ll try that.
