  • 1.  How do you create a link to a form in Evolve

    Posted 04-26-2023 11:19

    I knew how to create a link to a Winshuttle form in Foundation see example below. How do I create the same kind of link URL to a form in Evolve? It's the type of link where when someone clicks on the link, it always opens the latest version.

    Hi RTX Polley,

    Did you try launching the form from templates and copy the form link from the URL bar.
    I believe every time you browse this url in a browser it always opens up the latest deployed version of the form.
    Hope this helps

    Regards

    Hi RTX Polly,

    To design the Form URL on our own we can use the pattern :
    <EvolveSiteURL>/en/#/teamspaceName/winexternal?libraryid=<LibraryId>&template=<TemplateName>
    example :

    https://evolve.com/en/#/masterData/winexternal?libraryid=f293a6be-f288-45ac-a7f0-ffaa7e1f2085&template=FormSolution1.

    NOTE: 
    Libraryid can be copied from the launched template URL it will be 'Lid' in the template url.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards

    In foundation that didn't work. People would do that and save the form as a favorite, but when we deployed a change, the saved links no longer worked. People would be able to open the old version and submit a form, but it wouldn't go anywhere, because it was an older version. The problem is the originator didn't know the form was no longer good. There was a way to make a link that would always go to the latest version. Maybe in Evolve doing what you said will work even if we deploy a change. I will run a test and see if you are right.

    Hi RTX,

    Hammad is correct.  Please don't forget to convert spaces in your solution name to %20 , if you have them.

    My solution name: Business Partner Create via OData APIs (note the spaces) - in the URL you would convert it to would be Business%20Partner%20Create%20via%20OData%20APIs

    So his URL with my solution name would be: 
    https://evolve.com/en/#/masterData/winexternal?libraryid=f293a6be-f288-45ac-a7f0-ffaa7e1f2085&template=Business%20Partner%20Create%20via%20OData%20APIs

    Note that masterData is the App name in the URL.

    Best Regards,
    Sigrid

    @RTX Polley 
    When you deploy the solution and launch it, you should see this open triangle sign on the top right. 

    If you click on it, it will show the Form URL based on the pattern Hammad and Sigrid provided. 
    Just make sure to replace any spaces with "%20" in the template name.
