Creating Buttons

Who can use this feature?

👤  Available on all plans


If you want to highlight a link or update specific fields, you might want to use a button. You can create buttons in a few ways:


Using a URL in a field

You will need to use a URL field type to create this button.


  1. Click   Edit Layout
  2. Drag a field widget onto the layout
  3. Toggle the URL field
  4. Hover over the field until a pencil icon appears and click the pencil
  5. Check Display as button
  6. Choose a title for your button


This also works really well in the highlight widget. In our Hiring app we have used a button to highlight the applicants LinkedIn profile. 


Using a URL field to create buttons means you can have different URLs for different records.

Using a Banner Widget

  1. Click   Edit Layout
  2. Drag a banner widget onto the layout
  3. Fill out the relevant information


Using the banner widget creates a button for one URL on the layout.

You can add any URLs you like including taking the users to another page of the app.
