A Button which redirect to a previous list item

Hello,

I'm working on a request form and what I want to do is a button which, when the user pushes it, opens the list item that the user saved a while ago.

For example, Andrea, a user, asked access to a Sharepoint Site, she pushed the saved button, a list item is created, the ID of this item is 1, and the access is granted for Andrea, she's happy.

Two weeks later Andrea wants to complete her request, she needs an access to another Sharepoint Site and wants to edit her previous request in order to complete her previous request. The easiest way for her is to push a button which leads her to the item with ID 1.

Each user has a user ID in this form, for example Andrea has ID 34 and her colleague, Pedro, ID 75.

So in my previous example User_ID_34 created Request_ID_1.

I think there could be a way to attach the User_ID with Request_ID but I couldn't figure it out yet.


Is there a way to do that?

Sorry for my English, I'm a little rusty.

 

Kind Regards

Re: A Button which redirect to a previous list item

Hello Celine Obringer‌!

Your English is very good  

I think there are some different ways you could accomplish this.

The first that comes to mind is to do a Query List on the user ID, in Descending by Created date, and capture that one item (probably the item URL or ID) in a variable.

However...

I am a bit confused by: "Two weeks later Andrea wants to complete her request, she needs an access to another Sharepoint Site and wants to edit her previous request in order to complete her previous request."

Do you mean, she wants to create a new request based on the same information from her previous one? So she does not need to copy all of that previous data?

Am I on the right path..? 

Cheers,

Rhia

Re: A Button which redirect to a previous list item

Hello Rhia Wieclawek

Thank you for your answer

I was busy these last days and couldn't answer sooner, sorry.

You're on the right path

I tried to do a Query List bue no success

What I want is un button My Profil (Mon Profile) which would redirect the user to his( her) original form. (First Picture)

One user would only have one item in the list and complete this item each time he (she) have a new request.  (Second Picture)

But I'm in trouble with the item ID

mysite/fr/mysite/mysite/Lists/Request/EditForm.aspx?ID=41&Source=https****

I want this ID, in this case 41, to be linked to the CurrentUser who's logged to the website, so when the user push My Profil (Mon Profile)  his (her) personnel Item.
I thought about something like that mysite/fr/mysite/mysite/Lists/Request/EditForm.aspx?ID={CurrentUser:ID_User}&Source=https**** because each user has a personnal ID in this request form, but I really don't know how to perfom something like that.

Kind Regards

Re: A Button which redirect to a previous list item

Merci pour les details!

From what you've said here, I understand that the user has ONE other form, or a previous form, that will hold the information you want to pull into this NEW form.

Is that correct?

For example...

I come in, and fill out a form. I am Rhia. That form's ID is 41. I submit it.

2 months later, I come in, and fill out a form. I am rhia. THIS form's ID is 82, but, I want to push a button that will A) find the previous form that I entered (41), and B) pull in the data from that form for fields X, Y, and Z.

Is that accurate?

Re: A Button which redirect to a previous list item

Hello Rhia,

Thank you for your answer, that's really nice.

The user only have one form.

The scenario is :

I come in, and fill out a form. I am Rhia. That form's ID is 41. I submit it.

2 months later, I come in, and (fill out a form. I am rhia. THIS form's ID is 82, but)*, I want to push a button that will A) find the previous form that I entered (41), and B) pull in the data from that form for fields X, Y, and Z.

* I want to bypass this step et I only want this part :

I come in, and fill out a form. I am Rhia. That form's ID is 41. I submit it.

2 months later, I come in, and I want to push a button that will A) find the previous form that I entered (41), and B) pull in the data from that form for fields X, Y, and Z.

The button would start an action which would recognize the user because he (she) is connected with his (her) AD account but I don't know if it's possible to start a Workflow without creating or modifying an item.

Kind Regards

Re: A Button which redirect to a previous list item

Okay, so I did some thinking around this, and here are some options for you ...

You can start a workflow from a button -- take a look at these posts:

https://community.nintex.com/thread/2712

Just letting you know that's possible.

What you could do, though, is do a look-up in the form itself -- "look for this user, in this list. if you don't find it, don't worry. but if you do find it, then fields X, Y, and Z, should be filled with data."

So I think that would become a look-up rule of some sort.

I would need to test this out ... I might just... !

Just wanted to let you know I'm still thinking about it
