    Is there a way to prevent the forms from submitting until the final button is pressed? I would very much like to chain 3 forms together, and submit all 3 at the same time. Otherwise, what is the point of the multi-form buttons? They don't even seem to keep the form states separate. For instance, if I move from a form bound to entity 1 to a form bound to entity 2, then click the previous button, it passes the ID of entity 2 back to entity 1, which causes it to obviously not load the correct information.

    Am I missing something?

    Hello Andrew,

    The 'state' of the multi form buttons is stored in Dynamics CRM. Therefore each step must submit data when either the previous or next button is clicked so that the state can be loaded when returning to the step.

    In The Portal Connector 3.2 we have adjusted the way that multi step buttons send guids to other steps, now all records that are created or updated will have their guids passed in through the query string on the next step. This may solve the issue you are having with the entity IDs not being correct.
