Is there a way to redirect to a page after doing some action

Posted by jquerijero on 19-Nov-2014 10:52

Is there a generic page redirection in Rollbase after a user does some action? Normally a redirection after the Workflow Action is done, redirection after the user hit the Save or Cancel button on some pages, and etc. This redirection can be to one of the pages (given proper parameters) of the application or external website. 

Is this possible?

Hi Joseph,

Unfortunately, custom redirection is not included in Rollbase page properties. Users are normally redirected to the view page after doing actions (e.g. workflow, update, etc.).

Possible workaround solutions:
1. Use window.location (JavaScript) in view pages.
2. Change the 'destId' hidden field in forms with the target page ID. After saving the form, it will be redirected based on the page ID specified.

Although there are a few workarounds, I think this is a good "idea" which should be included in the future release of Rollbase.
