Series: The Lightning Experience. Part 2: What to do with those URL & Javascript buttons?

May 16, 2017

As I was learning Salesforce.com, I asked what would be a good skill to develop, to which the answer was custom buttons. I have to say, I’ve built some pretty awesome buttons in Classic version of Salesforce.  Alas, both URL hacks and javascript are not supported in Lightning. So, as you prepare your org to move over to the Lightning interface this may be something that needs solving. According to this Trailhead, suggested solutions include Quick Actions, Triggers, Lightning Actions, or Visualforce actions and buttons. Below is an example of an easy switch from URL hack to Quick Action.

 

 

 

Use Case: Current URL button opens an Opportunity edit screen with pre-populated fields.

Lightning Solution: Create a Quick Action.

 

Old URL Button example

Create a Quick Action

Go to setup menu > Object Manager > Account > Buttons, Links and Actions

 

New Action

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Add fields to "Edit Layout"

 

Set predefined values

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Add to Lightning Experience Actions on the Account Page Layout

 

Verify it’s on the Account Record Page

Once clicked, a pop-up with those fields pre-defined appear.
