Problem

Wouldn't you like to be able to redirect users to the page of your choice after submitting a new item to a SharePoint list?

Solution

Create a custom link to NewForm.aspx (which adds new items to a desired list).

http://MySharePointServer/MySubSite/Lists/TheTargetList/NewForm.aspx?Source=http://MySharePointServer

The part to the left of the question mark is the path to the NewForm.aspx. The part to the right of ?Source=, is the path where you want to send the user.

There are several ways to implement this.

  1. Create a Content Editor Web Part and add the link as part of some text in the web part.
  2. Create a Links (or add a hyperlink field to any list) and add the link in one of the entries.
  3. Perhaps you can think of other ways...add your comments to this article!
