Navigate Between Pages

It is possible to allow navigation between Pages of an App by configuring the Action of a Block. This allows you to separate your content within the application into sections that can be easily navigated by the user.

It is recommended that you read the article listed below to improve your understanding of Navigating between Pages.

Configuring Navigation between Pages

To add Navigation between Pages, make sure the Application has more than one Page. See the Manage Pages article to read more about adding Pages.

When a new Page is created, they are automatically configured to have links going back to the landing page, which can be seen at the top of the screen.

Some Pages do not automatically have links to other Pages. For example, the Landing page does not have links going to other pages. To add Navigation between Pages, follow these steps:

  1. Click on Applications from the left-hand menu.

  2. Click on the edit button of the Application from the list.

3. Select a Page from the Application’s Edit menu. 4. Click on Blocks. 5. Under ‘Actions’, select an action such as a button. 6. Drag and drop it onto the Page of the application.

7. Select the button. 8. Click on Block Properties. 9. Under ‘Action,’ click on the Navigate To Dropdown and select Page.

10. Select the page you want to navigate to.

11. Under ‘Appearance,’ give the button a name. 12. Click on Save.

After the Navigation between Pages has been added, you can Launch the App to see what it will look like at runtime. Follow the steps below to Launch and view the App:

  1. Click on Launch.

  2. The button is visible on the Page. Click on the button to navigate to the other selected Page.

3. The page will open.

Deleting Navigation between Pages

You can delete the navigation functionality by either deleting the Block itself or by deleting the settings under Action in the Block Properties tab.

You can include a back URL to the current page when configuring a Navigate To URL, so that the user can return to the original page. For example, you want to open an Alert from a custom templated list and the alert drill-down needs a back URL.

  2. Under 'Action', click on the Navigate To Dropdown and select URL.
