I’ve been playing around with column formatting, and list form formatting. Column formatting buttons are useful. However they appear to be completely useless in the form view. They only seem to appear if there’s data in the field, which is workable. However, they no longer function as a button as it will just click into the field behind the button. Not only is the button not useable, it’s confusing and clunky. Is there anyway round this, without resorting to power apps etc? I just would like a submit or save button in the form view for a current, not new, list item. It triggers a workflow, and it doesn’t feel comfortable doing that from just a field edit.
