Edit fields on the view screen?

Is It Possible to edit a field by selecting it on the View Record screen? (or go directly to the edit screen when a record is selected).

This is something I plan on adding a preference for. Prior to the upcoming version there was no way to implement a dial phone, web page link, etc from the Edit Record screen, and so the View Record screen was the only place you can do it. I know a lot of users would prefer the Edit Record screen as the first screen when a record is tapped, and think it comes down to a user preference. I will be adding this feature in a near future update as a preference you can choose!

My view screen is not displaying my information. I selected the percent to be shown for each field, totalling 100% in all. But only the first and last field show. Please help.

Hi,

The Percentage of List View option in a field's settings is the percentage of width it's shown in the List View- that is, the list of records view. In the View Record screen, the parameter to control which fields are shown is the value several spots above in the Edit Field screen. It displays either:
Visible in Edit Record screen - Meaning show it in the Edit or View Record screen, or
Not Visible in Edit Record Screen

Make sure that is set to Visible in Edit Record screen.

If you are working with Views, there is a per view setting for the same thing.

Hope this helps!
