Navigating from one capsule to a specific screen in another capsule

Hi All,


I am trying to find a way to navigate from one capsule (A) to another capsule (B) but instead of landing on the default screen of capsule B I want to navigate to a specific screen within that capsule.


Currently I have built a procedure that uses 'Go to capsule' and then 'Go to screen' but since I am in capsule A the only screens I can choose in the drop-down are those from capsule A. There is no option to choose the screens in capsule B because I am not in that capsule.


I have taken this one step further by going into capsule B, making a 'Go to screen' action with my chosen screen and then copying the action. I have then returned to capsule A and reopened my first procedure and pasted the 'Go to screen' action into it.

I now have a procedure that takes me to capsule B and loads a specific screen instead of the default screen.


When I run this procedure in the client it works and I arrive at the chosen screen in capsule B (the default screen does appear momentarily before loading the chosen screen).

When I run the same procedure in the web I am met with this error: "The chosen screen does not exist inside this capsule". I ideally need this to work in the web so end users can navigate.


It seems Board doesn't like my workaround of copying an action in one capsule and pasting it in another capsule's procedure but this is the only option I can think of.

Has anyone come across this issue before and come up with a solution?


Thank you in advance.
