I want my users to be able to create a list of their boat components by selecting components from a catalog. After selecting items, I want the user to be able to modify their components as needed, so I don't want to link the catalog component to a MyComponents list. I actually want to make a copy of the catalog record values in the MyComponents object.
I see how I can almost do this with an action link, but, for some reason I can't really understand, use of the action link is restricted to connected records. I don't really need a connection between the source and the destination. I suppose I could make a zapier webhook, but being navigated to the naked webhook will not be pleasant. Is there a better way?
