Any ideas, add a Save but don't close button

I am thinking I need a button that will save the form changes but will not close the form (or at least reopen the edit form).


Any suggestions?

    Yes, I think our article Redirect after SharePoint form submission can help you.

    You can add a custom button and put into its OnClick property JavaScript which will set the current edit form as source parameter of the action URL and emulate click event on submit button:

    [#1]: I know this is an older post but will it save if the user neglected "required" fields?

    For example we would like to save when we click a button names next tab.

    [#2]: Yes, it will work, but the user will stay on a new form until they fill all the required fields. Then they will be redirected and the form will be saved.
