I am developing an app that consists of the CRUD operations. Lets say I want to create, read, update and delete clients. I have a page that lists all of the clients, page that shows a particular client and a page that is the form which you can update the clients.

My question is, as soon as we finish Updating the client form, where should we redirect the user to? I am thinking of 3 options:

  1. redirect back to the form itself with a save success message
  2. redirect to the 'show particular' client page, with a save success message.
  3. redirect to the list of clients with a save success message.

Not sure if I am thinking too much about this but I would like to hear other's thoughts.

Many thanks!

Redirect to the client page.

That’s the place where the editors can verify that their edits were successful and as intended.

And, of course, show a link on the client page that leads to its edit page.
