I was reviewing a number of records and making a few edits along the way and found it somewhat annoying that I had to go back to the list screen after saving the changes. Also a bit of an annoyance was wanting to undue the changes and start again.

  1. It would be nice if we had a reset button to undue all changes instead of cancel, locate the same record and hit modify again.
  2. It would be nice if we had some visual feed back that the record was dirty. Maybe change the colour of the save/apply button.
  3. With 2 in mind, Merge the `Apply Button` plugin into the core
  4. Provide a next/prev record button tied to the search/sort records of the current list

Hi Jeff,

Thanks for the feedback! We always appreciate hearing about what would make the software better for people to use. I particularly think that #2 could be a pretty easy win.

A question about #1: is reloading the page sufficient to undo unsaved changes like you're asking, or do you have a case where that wouldn't work?

Reloading the page sends a request to the server. The html reset input or button is built into the browser.

you might be surprised how many people don’t know about the refresh button.
