  • Method for setting (multiple) values of a lookup field client-side.

    • Under Review
    Right now it isn't possible to set (multiple) values of a lookup field client-side. rbf_setFieldValue() does not work for lookup fields and with the undocumented rbf_selectObject function, you can set only one value of a lookup field. Would be great...
  • Add interface to enhance search accuracy

  • Ability to extend the JavaScript API

    • Under Review
    We recommend that it would be valueable and good for code-efficiency and de-duplication if we could extend the JavaScript API. For exmaple, to add new functions or override existent functions. Plus this would make it easier for us to integrate 3rd...
  • Need Workflow, Delete and other buttons available for a Mobile enabled application...

    When I set an application to be Mobile Enabled and run it from a mobile phone, only the Edit button is available from the view page of a record. I'd like to be able to act on Workflow button on that object for approvals, workflow status changes, deletes...
  • Set section default collapsed or not collapsed
