Return to same position in document after leaving a reference / autocomplete field on mobile

pvdlageweg 3 months ago • updated by Jira user 4 days ago 7 1 duplicate

As a mobile user I would like that, after I have selected a value in a reference / autocomplete field and return to the document, I return to the same position in the document as before entering the reference field. This would improve my User Experience, especially in large documents.


[WHY] To improve the user experience on mobile devices.

[WHO] Mobile user

[WHAT] Make sure that after leaving the reference / autocomplete field on mobile, the user returns to the same position in the document as before.


Current Situation

After leaving the reference / autocomplete field, the user’s position is atop the document.


Acceptance Criteria

  • After leaving the reference / autocomplete field on mobile, the user should return to the same position in the document as before entering the reference field.

  • Any field that has one level deeper should have the same behaviour, so that in case we are adding new fields with the same behaviour it should work for these fields as well.

Hello Erwin,


Reading this I would think its a feature request, more specific a UX improvement. Do you agree?

Hello Peter,


yeah not sure, I don't know how it's supposed to work or how it has worked, so in that regard it might also be an improvement. I think it's quite user unfriendly (especially with a large document with many header fields) when your focus gets lost every time.

Under review

The functionality has never been in place, so it concerns an improvement. I think it's a very valid feature request and it will be taking into the roadmap planning.

Is this happening only for the reference/autocomplete fields or is it more general and is happening for other fields (which ones?) or every time a modal popup is closed?

Under review

In general it should work for field that have an extra level on a mobile device. I saw that it's also applying to the attachment field, so we can add that to the acceptance list as well. 


I'm not sure where you find a modal on a mobile device, can you elaborate a bit more on that part of the question?

this will happen on fields that change the screen on mobile, as when we go back to the previous screen then we should preserve the state
