8: New Car Screen Versions

Now that we can add a vehicle from our New Car screen, it makes sense that we should be able to edit one.

There are two ways we can do this: we can create a new screen to edit a car, or we can give the New Car screen a second purpose and have it edit a car as well.

Creating a second screen is easier, but making the New Car screen dual purpose is more common and has greater learning potential, so we'll choose that!

However, we plan on altering the New Car screen significantly, and in case we make a mistake or we change our mind, it would be handy to have a backup plan. That's where Versions  come in. Let's create a new version of the same screen.

  1. Click the vertical ellpsis on the Cars App and choose Manage.
  2. On the New Car Screen, click the vertical ellipsis and select Versions.
  3. Click the vertical ellipsis on Ver.1. From the dropdown, select Copy.
  4. You will be taken the Design Mode of the New Car screen, but you will now be working on a separate version. For now, select Close to exit Design Mode and return back to the Versions screen.

You have now created a second version of the New Car screen. Any changes you make in this version, will not be reflected in Version 1.

Note the little person icon by Version 2? That indicates the version that is active for you. Whenevever you customize the New Car screen, you will be customizing Version 2.
