Understand form buttons

Understand form buttons

form  in a Zoho Creator app features the following set of buttons:
  • When a user accesses your form to submit an entry (i.e., add a record):  Submit  and  Reset .
  • When a user accesses your form to update a record:  Update  and  Cancel .

You can change the display names of these buttons. The display name for a form button:

  • Can contain letters from any language, numbers, and special characters.
  • Can contain a maximum of 200 characters.

Understand the Submit button

Clicking/tapping  Submit  triggers form submission — the process where the data that a user enters in your form, is submitted. Clicking/tapping the  Submit  button does the following:

  1. Trigger field-level validations like  mandatory no duplicate values .
  2. Trigger the  On Validate  actions in form workflows that are to run when a record is  Created
  3. Create a record.
  4. Trigger all other actions in form workflows that are to run when a record is  Created .

Below is how the  Submit  button looks on a form,

  • When a user accesses it from a web browser:

Understand the Reset button

The  Reset  button clears the data your user entered on your form and resets them to their default values. When a user accesses your form from a web browser, the  Reset  button is displayed next to the  Submit  button, as shown above.

This button is not displayed on a phone/tablet. If your users need to reset your form while accessing it from a phone/tablet, they must:

  1. Tap the  Back  button in the top-left of their device's screen.
  2. If your users enter some data and then tap the  Back  button, then they will be shown a prompt. Tapping  Go Back  will take them to your app's dashboard, where all components that you have shared with them are listed. If they have not entered any data on your form, tapping the  Back  button will directly take them to your app's dashboard.
  3. Tap on your form and access it again.

Understand the Update button

The  Update  button is displayed in place of the  Submit  button. Clicking/tapping the  Update  button does the following:

  1. Trigger field-level validations like  mandatory no duplicate values .
  2. Trigger all  On Validate  actions in form workflows that are to run when a record is  Edited .
  3. Update the record.
  4. Trigger all other actions in form workflows that are to run when a record is  Edited .

Below is how the  Update  button looks on a form,

  • When a user accesses it from a web browser:

Understand the Cancel button

The  Cancel  button appears when a user accesses your form to update a record. It is displayed next to the  Update  button, as shown above. The  Cancel  button enables your users to remove all changes they made to the existing record (before they tap the  Update  button).

When your users access your form from a phone/tablet, the  Cancel button appears on the top-left of the form.
