How to update an item outside the list?

Hi guys, I’m new to the community and I’m still testing the tool.
I would like your help to solve a question:

I’m developing an employee clocking application.

By clicking this button, I insert a record in a table of notes, so far ok.

I have another button that is hidden, it appears after the employee starts his workday, the function of this other button will be to stop the employee’s workday, for that I would need to update the record that was created initially.

I am not able to do this. Any idea?

Sorry for my English, I’m from Brazil and I don’t know how to speak properly, I use google translator.

Welcome to the group!

First you will need to make this button into a “Custom List”

You will then have to make this list a collection of the collection you are trying to update and add a record to.

After that, filter the list to only show the current work day (might do this by filtering by current user email, give it a maximum of 1 and then filter by created new to old)

Then that way once you click the button you will be able to update the current work day record.

Hope this helps, i built a similar app.

Hopefully this comes up clear on google translate! hahaha


Archer, thank you very much for your help, I think I understand. I will try to replicate your suggestion!

And yes! Google translator did its job well. :slight_smile:
