Visit Boris website Is it possible to launch into a url from a button?


Within the template use “Add item” and choose “Action buttons”. Go to the first button and choose “web link”, you’ll need to specify a “unique name”. It uses the “lookup field” – in here you enter the “unique name” of the item on the form that holds the URL to open.

Having the URL as an item on the form isn’t great, but in the case of the customer I’m thinking of this is actually part of the “job” information that’s sent down from the server.


If you always want the same URL then you could use a Text item on the form and then put in a default value of the required URL. It might also work if you then hide the Text item by putting on a dummy “condition” like resultValue;xxx;equals;999.


Let me know if this doesn’t help.
