Save Changes Button

When we input data in a contact's record, do we have to click the Save Changes button before we scroll or search to the next record? I've noticed some fields that I thought I put data in, but it didn't save; I just can't figure out which fields require this (or maybe any changes should).

 

Thank you

Hi AJP,

No, I have not received an answer to this. Sorry.

Have a great day.

As a general rule, scrolling to a different contact record forces an automatic save. However, changing screen focus (clicking on a different open application, a dialog popup, etc.) can cause loss of edits if an explicit save changes isn't made first.

Hi Roy,

 

Is that Save changes button equivalent to Function key F5 ?

Thanks for the reply, Roy.

This is another area where Act! could be improved.
