Tenant: mycompany User: designer Application: HR Form: Invoice
A designer must make changes to a form/flow in their company space at the request of a co-worker. The requesting employee logs into the company space, selects the form/flow from the menu and copies the form/flow instance URL from the browser. An opaque URL such as the one shown below is emailed to the designer. The designer can't remember what user, app, form/flow name that opaque url maps to and uses the lookup feature to find the form/flow they need to fix/enhance.
Paste the opaque URL into your browser. Remove everything after the uuid. Replace it with lookup after the slash. Press the Enter key. Login to the tenant (determined by the tenant name after the /tn in the URL) as an admin, designer or publisher user if presented with the login screen.
The uuid is converted to the user id of the designer who owns the space.
Login to the tenant as the specified user and edit the space menu to get the raw form/flow link. Remove everything after the formtype, flowtype, value in the opaque Raw Form/flow link. In the example shown, you would remove all characters starting with the question mark
Add /lookup to get the application and form/flow name
The workflow named Example 3 - PO for Sales Review is located in the tenant mycompany, in the designer user account, in the application Purchase Order Completed.

For example, the user may copy and paste the session URL into a new browser tab where they are still logged in, which would load with the form data.

Unsaved Changes Warning Message
Data loss is possible if users filling in a lot of data in a long forms/flows close the browser ot tab without saving or submitting. If the Unsaved Changes Warning feature is configured, users will be warned of this situation before the data loss. This applies to use-mode forms and flows only, not edit mode. The warning only shows if there have been changes made to the form/flow. If there are no changes, then no warning is displayed. If the form/flow is Saved or the Save on Navigate feature is configured for a flow, then changes are saved and the warning is not produced on any attempt to close the browser.
The unsaved changes warning feature is not supported on iOS Safari and only partially supported on Chrome Android. You may notice some inconsistencies with workflows. Refer to the Unsaved Changes topic for the details.
This feature is not configured in the frevvo Cloud. In-house customers can turn on the Unsaved Changes Warning feature with the frevvo.unsaved.warning property.
