I've been unable to find or devise a way of chaining two actions in a row, triggered from a button on an interface.
I'd like to automate two actions with a single button:
Both actions are offered as separate options by the interface editor for a button, but I want to have them consecutively executed with a single keystroke, that is, associated to a single button.
Anyone that can provide an idea / suggestion, I'll be happy to know.
Yes I was aware of that. Both actions are offered as separate options for a button, the second one has nothing to do with automation, just a browser action.
This was a rather pessimistic query, in case some wizard thought of a workaround that does the trick. I will have to stick to using two buttons, one to prepare the data and the other to lead the user to the other screen.
Well, if you want to go into the theoretical realm of what is possible, you could have a button field that calls a Make.com webhook, then have the Make scenario trigger the automation, and also return a webpage that redirects to a custom interface page with query parameters set via the scenario. However, the result would still open in a new browser window. So it is theoretically possible, but probably not really worth the effort.
