No Previous Button in Agentry Loop over collection screens

Hi Team,

We are not able to find the Previous buttons in Agentry Loop Over collection Transaction screens in Work Manager 6.2. But in the Wizard buttons I can see it is enabled.

See attachment.

But it is not displayed in iPad or even in windows client.

Experts please help me to find out what I am missing to enable the previous button.

Help is much appreciated.

    Hi Bala,

    We are using loop over displayed list items loop to capture the measurement points, which is working fine for us.we are using WPF client but not sure about the behaviour of IOS client.

    As far as I know, transaction Wizards as the name implies is for Transactions.  You can have next or previous provided you are in the same transaction context and have multiple screens under your screenset that you defined for your transaction.

    There is a misconception on next and previous when it comes to "Actions" and the multiple steps.

    Example: Action 1.

    Action 1:

    Step 1 - Transaction Screenset (screen 1, screen 2, screen 3)

    Step 2 - Apply

    Step 3 - SubAction (points to another screen)

    Step 4 - Apply

    This is a transaction wizard next and previous buttons.  In step 1, within the multiple transaction screen inside the same screenset you will have next and previous.

    In Step 3 where you are inside another screen you cannot have a previous button that goes back to Step 1 as it is already been applied.

    So in theory, the previous screen only works inside a transaction and not across multiple steps as described above.  Hence it is called Transaction Wizard and not Action Wizard.

    In your picture above you have looping that runs on all displayed items and to run 1 action RecordPointWrapper.  From my definition above it will not know how to go back to your previously saved (applied) action.

    There is a different button < and > that goes down the looping on the displayed list. There is something about apply that you cannot unapply it.

    Hope this helps clear the definition.

    Hi Balamurugan,

    If Transaction Screen set has only one screen then it will have only two buttons -

    1. Finish

    2. Cancel

    You can change the text of these buttons going to Wizard Buttons options(your first screenshot).

    If you just want to change the text of your Cancel button to 'Previous', do the setting as per the below screen shot -

    But it will only change the text of the button and not the functionality.

    If your Transaction screen set has more than one screen, then only you will have Next and Back buttons to navigate between the screens. You may see Next and Back buttons enabled in Wizard Buttons but they will not be there on the screens until and unless your Transaction screen set has more than one screen.

    Thanks and Regards,
