Navigate to Tab behaving differently in phone mode to Tablet mode

My app’s URL:

I have just enabled tablet/desktop mode, and I am having an issue with some buttons not working.

It is a simple “Navigate to Tab” action which works fine in phone view on the desktop.

It is not functioning on Chrome or Safari on an iPad, and Chrome on a Chromebook. Press the button and nothing happens except what appears to be a screen refresh.

The tabs are hidden from the menu for design and navigation reasons, but no access restrictions are in place.

I have had a check on the forums and couldn’t find any similar issues, apologies if I have missed a thread on this.

It seems like the tab is not visible…

How are you hiding them? You cannot navigate to a hidden tab.

Just with a visibility of user=HIDDEN

Works fine in phone mode both on desktop browser and on a phone.

/edit Just removed the visibility variable and it does work after that. Not sure why it would work in phone mode, and not desktop though.

Any thoughts on this? Still seems to be an odd behaviour.

Phone can navigate to a hidden tab with a direct “Navigate to Tab” button.

Desktop is unable to do this.

Is the Desktop view the issue, or is the Phone view doing something it shouldn’t be able to do?


I have updated the title to more accurately describe the issue
