Has anyone attempted to make a step-by-step instruction guide, displaying child records one by one like a details page? My idea is to have an instruction (parent table) and instruction steps (child records) and to visualize all the steps as a process with a next/previous button. Ideally the next button will be able to record elapsed time for each step in a separate table.
Looking forward to any suggestions.
This is very doable and not too complicated.
Created a table with as many details pages as you need steps:
Here is what it looks like in the builder (I have renamed all the details pages to steps):
Now on each step, you can have your instructions in the details component and then you add a form component that edits this details page:
This is what your first details page should look like:
On the form component, make sure there are NO fields added to the form. Then on the options page you can rename the button NEXT:
Also on the options page you want to turn off the back link:
Then on the Rules page you want to select the Submit rules and have this form redirect to an existing page, in this case STEP 2:
On the last step you can call the form button complete:
It should look like this:
As far as timing each step, you will have to add a date/time field for each step and on the form component of each step record the time of submission.
