I’ve seen a handful of folks asking about adding a new row via a button, but using a specific view and not the base table to do so.
Currently, the “open row for editing” option in buttons will always open the base table view. (I.e. even if the button is configured to add to a specific view, the modal that opens to enter your details will use the base table’s default, including layouts and hidden columns.)
We’re hoping to make some internal improvements that allow for different layouts or view settings here, but in the meantime, here’s a workaround (instructions in doc):
Hope you find this useful! Curious to see if others have found novel ways around this problem.
