    I’ve created a field script to colour a record green when the task is complete. All looks great in the desktop version, clearly brightly filled rows in the linked table display of records.
    In iOS the view is slightly underwhelming & easily missed that tasks are complete, just a subtle coloured line at the top of the record once you tap to enter the linked form, no clear indication whilst viewing the table list of records.

    Is there anyway of making this colour change more obvious to mobile users at a glance?

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions, Stephen.

    Hi Stephen,

    When a record is NOT selected, you will see the background colour of the cell displayed using the colour you’ve set for the record. But when it’s selected, you will only see the thin horizontal line coloured above the record details.

    So try selecting a different record and you should see your colours on the records list view. This is more apparent on the iPad version though as you can see both the record details and the records list at the same time in landscape orientation.

    You might also want to use a checkmark in the first position on your form and TF on iOS will render this on the list view too. I covered this in a video on making a shopping list so you can see what it looks like and if that’d help your use case.
