Is there an option to revert the dialog style Related Actions from 19.3 to the old redirect style Related Actions from older versions?
After testing on several instances, the dialog style Related Actions seems to run slower than the old redirect style Related Actions.
In addition, the dialog style Related Actions allow the user to interact with the record view before the page refreshes. Many projects chain related action process models through all data updates in order to avoid that possibility. Even with activity chaining, dialog style related actions still have that issue.
Thanks for sharing this feedback. After reviewing this and other feedback we've received on this change, we’ve decided to remove it from 19.3. The behavior as-is does not meet the necessary use cases for user flows through related action forms. A 19.3 hotfix coming early next week will turn off the feature and restore prior behavior. We’re still reviewing if and when the capability will be re-added to the product.
I greatly appreciate the response, but I also share Mike's sentiment that it is a good feature, and a nice add to the product even as the new default behavior provided that developers have some means to opt out.
I also agree with Mike that it might find use in additional places besides just Related Actions as a display option. It nicely conveys the intent of a quick one-time action affecting a particular item.
I hope that you're able to re-include the optional version of this feature soon.
