Letting users update records in your data.
This Action Button, similar to the Edit Record button, lets your users update records (e.g. List items) in your data. The difference is that, instead of letting the user input data or choose an option, you predefine the value that needs to be applied. Thus, the user only needs to click the button to complete the update.
To set up the button, you need to specify the field (Field parameter) that needs to be modified and set the value that will replace the existing value of the field.
The Replace existing value with settings are similar to those of the hidden field values.
Let’s consider an example to see this functionality in action.
Example: Letting a development team users reassign tasks
Let’s say we have a list of tasks for a development team, where each task has an assignee (Assignee Email field).
We are going to add a One-click update button to list items named “Reassign to me,” which will let each user reassign the task to him/her with one click.
Next, we need to add a field to the button, map it to the Assignee Email field, and select the Logged-in user’s Email as the value.
That’s it. Now, let’s log in with one of the development team users and test how this works.
