Currently as your cursor moves over a Web Forms pane, the row that the cursor is over is highlighted. While this can be useful for knowing where your next click will "land," there is at least one situation where I think it would be better to override this behavior. When I am invoicing, the first step I take is to change the label in the label column from to "Invoiced." My next action afterwards is to go to "Next staps" on that same line. When I have multiple lines showing in Web Froms, some with blank label and some with "Invoiced" labels, it can be difficult to tell which line I just modified.

My suggestion is this: When the last action taken was changing a label, highlight the row with the label change instead of the row the cursor is currently hovering over.

Make sense? Thanks.

I see I inadvertantly put an html tag in the original. I change the label from BLANK to "Invoiced"

Hi Shawn!

Thank you for sharing your idea! We have let our WebForms Product Manager about this, who will consider it for future WebForms enhancements.

Keep your eyes on this thread for any updates!

I would like to ammend my suggestion to something that would be just as effective, but would probably be far easier to implement. Rather than color the entire row, just change the font color in the cell containing the label that was just changed. Cells in the Label column are currently static.

This will make it much easier to tell which line I just changed so I select "Next Steps..." for the right row.

Hi Shawn,

So it sounds like it would be more useful for you to keep the highlight on the row you are currently working on instead of generically where the mouse is hovering. This concept introduces the idea of an active row independent of where the mouse is pointing. This makes a lot of sense. Because this idea is a detailed improvement to one function, I'm going to keep this as "Under Consideration" until we begin a project that addresses other aspects of the Inbox display. We can probably lump this into a larger project at that time.

Thanks!
Colin
