SKIP: External resources tab

0 votes

Interesting request from a user here:
They want something like a "resources" tab where we can put links to external resources, so dbFront can be the main point of entry to our systems with access to other tools embedded in.

Edit: Just occurred to me that I can pretty much hack together something like this by making an "External Resources" table that contains the urls and add a "Launch" action button that opens the selected resource. So I don't know how valuable this feature request is but leaving it up for the record.

Would this be table relative, database relative or as soon as they open dbFront?  Your idea about the Resources table would work...
I was imagining on the initial page as soon as they open dbFront, that there would be a Resources button or menu. However the table workaround is fine for me so I think you can skip this request and focus on better things...

Create a separate table that lists all of the URLs and descriptions.

OpenURL Action Buttons

Custom Buttons can be added to any table that will open a specified URL.

Custom Table Help

The Custom Table help can be set up with a list of extra resource URLs.
