Submit action?

I have a form with three buttons calling custom actions. Is there a way to have each of them also submit the form so that the data gets saved?

No, I don’t think that’s going to work. Trying to use a built in form outside of what it’s intended for will make things more complicated. The only way to submit data in a built in form is the use the built in submit button.

What I would advise is to set up a custom form, which will allow you to use your buttons how you intend for them to be used.

Jeff, thank you for the reply. Somehow I’m thinking that I should be able to have a simpler solution. I’m essentially just wanting to have two options on a form - one to assign a person to the work order, the other to complete the work order. In each case I auto-populate a date and a status field, and then trigger a zap. Is there an easier way to do this than I’m trying? FYI, I’m a newbie to Glide.

Thanks for your help!

Maybe you can have a choice component for the status, say “Pending” and “Completed”. If “Pending” then show another choice component to assign a person?

Then trigger a zap based on the chosen status.

That’s a slick idea. It would be nice if the actions would allow more than one decision tree. Maybe that will come in the future.


There are a lot of posts about that, but this request has too few votes:


I voted for it :slight_smile:
