Cannot go back one page after editing form. Goes to first rows' details page instead of the row I'm working on.

After i edit a form and click submit, instead of going Back one page, it jumps to the first row entrys page.

For Instance, 1st screen (BrowseScreen1) has many employee names listed alphabetically. I select the employee i want to see details on and click edit. After i edit the fields and click submit, it updates the form BUT it jumps to the first Entry (Name that starts with A) instead of the employee i am working on. 


My Editfom OnSuccess says Back(), but i'm not sure whats wrong.  I want to go back to the employee i was just editing instead of back to beginning.





On my BrowseGallry1 (1st Page) for reference.

Instead of Back() use Navigate('Screenname') on Onsuccess property of the edit form to get back to the pervious page...

I hope it will help you 

thumps up if its useful.

Still goes back to first employee that start with letter A.

Rather than using the back() you can use navigate(your screen name); Apply navigate function on OnSelect property.
so you will get your solution.

Hi @ChrisHoover7684 


You can use variable if you need to see the record you've navigated before , or else can you share a bit more information like how you come to the form screen, your currant code used

Hey  @ChrisHoover7684  

you can use this formula on the button on select property from where you are submitting the data .

SubmitForm(form name); Back();

this formula first submit the data into database and then take you to the previous screen.

Hi @ChrisHoover7684 ,


Under normal circumstance using Back() would return to the screen that was most recently displayed (at the place when you navigate away). I tested several times with this function but have found nothing that could lead the result in your case.


Please turn on the "keep recently visited screens in memory" option in studio settings and try again:



If the issue persists, please consider raise a ticket on the support page:


Hope this helps.
