I am sorting my portal in desc. order by date so the most recent input appears at the top. Is there a way you can force the new entries to be on the top to avoid unecessary scrolling by the user.
Add a New Record button that creates a new related record and enters todays date in the date field. This may require a Refresh Window step as part of the script, but since your portal sorts by date in descending order, this should put your record at the top. If you have multiple records for the same date, you may want to define a serial number field in the portal's table and sort in descending order by that field instead of by date.
