What is the proposed idea/solution?

This is a crosspost in the actual 'ideas' forum. I originally proposed this here

When opening a record details page (sidesheet/full page), I'd like to be able to press a button to open the same record details but in a different, customized record detail page.

I have so many customized record detail pages that I would love to make use of, but the only way to currently do that is in a different interface page, or use the 'open url in record' hack that has to reload the entire page to work, which is a bit clunky.

How does is solve the user problems?

Simple use case: open record details to view information that is not edit'able, click button to open the edit'able version of the record.

How was this validated?

I use hacks on every single one of my airtable apps to do this already.

Who is the target audience?

Honestly, I can imagine just about every interface-builder would use this. It would open so many options.

Actually, I agree. I'm also making different versions of the same interface for different operating systems.  Since the layout of the interfaces varies slightly on Android, iOS, and desktop, I end up with three versions of the same interface page just so my users can see the same things.
