SharePoint Integration - OnCancel I want to user to open a different URL

I want the user to be redirected to a different URL when they hit the cancel button in a sharepoint list custom form.  I have been successful in the past with the onsave button using Launch() to redirect after submition, the same code does not seem to work on the oncancel button.

 

Code sample

ResetForm(SharePointForm1);Launch("https://webaddress")

 

Thanks in advance

Re: SharePoint Integration - OnCancel I want to user to open a different URL

Hi @jfrancis 

 

On the SharePoint integration node - OnCancel method

 

use 

Launch("url");ResetForm(SharePointForm1)

 

Tested this out to make sure it works

Thanks for the quick reply i tried what you suggested but it did not work.  It looped me back to the all items page:

 

Launch("http://www.google.com");ResetForm(SharePointForm1)

Hi @jfrancis 

 

It will launch google and then go to list screen (that is by design)

Thats not the behaviour i am seeing.  Launch never opens a new tab in browser for web page.  I just opens the allitems.aspx in the parent page.  I never see the google page open at all and no pop-up warnings either.

 

The same code on here: SubmitForm(SharePointForm1);Launch("https://xxx.xxx.com/:u:/r/sites/xxx/forms/SitePages/Thank-You.aspx?csf=1&e=Hz13S3")

Works corectly takes me to correct page in a new tab but leaves the form open.

 

I am tring to avoid users going to the all items page all together. I want them to goto intranet page if they cancel.

Hi @jfrancis

This works for me 

 

However it does show both allitems and the new browser

So no way to stop the user going to allitems even by doing the above (default behavior of cancel)

Re: SharePoint Integration - OnCancel I want to user to open a different URL

I think what you said is correct. 

 

I have been fighting with this thing from many days, trying to get the user to redirect to a different URL or the home page of the site rather than the 'AllItems' page. I have tried using Navigate() and Launch with no luck. Let me know if you find a way to resolve this.

 

One thing that I did:

I changed the data that the AllItems view show to the user. Restricted it to only show the items that the user created (Use [Me] in the Edit view filters) so that we can restrict some infomation atleast. I wish there are other options for OnCancel. Thanks!
