Hi. Usually, when a user completes his task he will be redirected to the applications dashboard. In a particular use case I have revoked access to the dashboard for certain users.

Hi all I got a process that uses values from a dictionary process in a field [picker field] (the user can select an element from the dictionary process in the form).

Hi all, I'm trying to create an HTML field on a form that uses the mailto:-Tag. So in the HTML I put <a href=”mailto:user@domain.com”>Message Support</a> However, on the live form this string is appended to the Portal url's pointer to the app->form itself. Looks like this: https://webcon.finnova.com/db/1/app/15/element/57427/%E2%80%9D<a href=”mailto:user@domain.com”>Message Support</a> This way it prevents from opening external links. Is this by design or am I doing something wron (...)

Hi, After upgrading to Webcon2023 (ver. 2023.1.2.44) we found errors during Form rule executions on page load. It is caused by trying to hide/show/set/etc attributes that are not visible on the form. In the 2022 versions, there were no issues with the same configuration cases. These errors appear during Diagnostics and additionally prevent saving the Diagnostics Session. Does anybody have similar issues with Webcon 2023? I tried to find it in the changelogs but with no success. MS (...)

Hello, I want to hide/show the buttons in an item list for : add row, delete row and clone but based on rule. To be more specific, I want the 3 buttons to be visible when the instance is using business entity 1, 2 and 3 , but when i use the business entity 4 i want them to be hidden. The only way I made it possible is by using a form rule with a Java Script, but could not see any build in Webcon options. If anyone knows other ways to make this happen, I would appreciate it a lot. Thanx
