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.
This feature seemed like a very good approach to a variety of use cases where we would wish to keep the user from accidentally clicking away from a short-lived, temporary or transient process flow... especially in Sites where they are likely not seeing a traditional "task list".
It seems to me that a great approach might be to allow designers the option to enable this functionality on an individual related action basis, as well as in Start Process Links, Task Links and Record Type actions.
To add to this, modal dialog will also be useful on the click of buttons (Tabs interface pattern), dynamic link, card layout, etc.
