Using the End Form Session Step to navigate

Last Updated: 12/13/2018 Introduced in Version: 2.0

Flows can be used to control portal navigation. This example will show how to navigate to a specific folder/page using a flow.

 

Example

Before creating a flow, you need to know the id of the folder you want to navigate to. For this example, we will navigate to the Example Projects Folder under the name “My Home”. To get this folder’s ID, click on the little arrow next to the folder and select Manage > Get Designer Folder ID.
 

 
In the dialog that opens, select and copy the ID.
 

 
Create a new flow (see Creating your First Flow) with a simple form (see Creating Your First Form Flow). Put one button on your form that says Go to Home Page.
 

 
In the Toolbox, expand Forms and drag End Form Session onto your work space.
 

Click on your new End Form Session step to edit its properties. In the Behavior section, set Options to Navigate
 

 
You will now see new options appear in this steps properties for setting FolderId and PageName. The folder id is the id of the folder you want to navigate to and the page name is the Name of the page you want to open. Enter the ID we copied earlier and the name of My Home.
 
 
Connect End Form Session to the end step.
 

 
Save, close and run your flow.
 
 
You will see your flow’s first form (which should just be a button). Click that button and your portal will navigate to the My Home page
