Update Request Customization - descriptions and headers like a Form

Options

The update requests are not always easy to explain with the limitations in the column header. It would be very beneficial and extremely useful to allow the user to create update requests like you would a form.

This is a terrific suggestion. We're working to provide collaboration guardrails that facilitate high-quality communication and leveraging existing context fits neatly into that construct. If we believe we can make this idea a reality, we'll plan to update the status here.

    Hi Robin,

    Can you help with more details about your topic? I would be happy to upvote, but I don't fully understand the request.

    When setting up an automation to send out an update request that includes an Attachment field, having the ability to modify the text and help text would improve this feature greatly. In my use case, I can then create an initial intake form, and have the update request mimic the form and ensure it includes all the necessary details for the attachment field and how to properly use it.

    If you put the details (text and help text) in a helper column on every row, which you could do by an automation or data mesh, then you could include the details in the update buy using the {{field name}}

    Hello.

    Has anyone received an update on this issue/request to have help text for any fields or extending the character limit in the columns in order to use these in Update Requests?

    Thanks in advance.

    Right now all forms are In Take forms. Simply allow to select a form for an Update Request. Then, the labels, descriptions, help, logic, validation, hidden fields, etc., will be applied when updating the row.

    This would be a huge improvement to update requests, I would also like to see this soon. I especially like Luis Martinez Ruiz's suggestion to just leverage forms so there is no need to learn different methods for update requests and initial data requests.

    This is a great idea and would greatly impact quality of life when working with the Update Requests.

    I really need this. It is amazing this wasn't how it was setup. Updaters need the form information just as much as the initial requestor.

    Logic and Helper Texts are already implemented in Forms. As I mentioned earlier, current Forms are only In Take forms. By simply allow the developer to select an existing Form when defining an Update Request, its logic, helper texts, labels, validations, hidden fields, etc., will be applied when updating the row.
