New Row and go to field

Hello, new user and first time post. I’m switching over from filemaker, and really excited so far.

I have a very specific to do list database, and speed of data entry is one of my concerns.
I would like help making a button using run actions that:
1)adds a new row to a table
2)sets a specific cell as ready for text entry

The result would be that the user can push the button, and start typing to new to do item. Thank you!

Hi Nick,

Welcome to Coda. Hope that you will come to love it as much as the rest of us here.

As usually, there are different ways to do it. Some people create a form, which they then link to the table.

I usually create a button, either on the canvas (blank are of the doc) as below, or as a button column in the table.

I will also add your name to an ongoing thread about this topic, to create multiple different “input screens” depending on the row, just for interest sake.
