In SharePoint on premise you don’t have the modern list experience (yet). Luckily, this is bound to change with SharePoint 2019. In SharePoint Online however, switching between the classic and modern list experience is as easy as changing one setting. That is, if you or your administrator has given you the rights to do so. In this blog I’ll be showing the differences between the classic and modern list view.
In my previous blog I showed how to redirect a user after saving a newly created or edited list item, by using the Source parameter. A reason as of why you would want to redirect your users could be to confirm that their input has been successfully saved or to make sure that they don’t land on your list view. Whatever the reason of the redirect may be, it’ll also redirect the user to that URL whenever he hits the cancel button. While this side effect can be useful at times, it can also be very confusing.
Imagine what happens when you redirect your users to a success-page, only does the user not hit the save button but the cancel button in stead? Right, it’ll still redirect the user to the success-page! Luckily, there is a method to redirect users to a different page whenever he hits that cancel button. This method only works on SharePoint on premises however.
When you are using lists and want users to enter new items into that list, you might want to send them to a different location after the Save operation. For example, you want your users to know that the save has been successful. A redirect after saving a new item or editing an existing item can come in handy. In this blog I’ll show you how to set up a redirect after saving a form.
