Extended Records Functionality in Napili


By: Radha

In Spring 16, Salesforce provides extended records functionality in Napili. The new components provide community members with the data they need the most.

Allow Community Members to Create Records

We can add Global actions to community pages. Using this feature, we can add button and Form to the community pages.

Follow these steps to create a button and form in Community Page:

  1. In Community Builder, Add the Create Record button to Community Page.
  1. In Property Editor, Choose the Global action. For Example, New Case or New Event.
  1. Click “Add Global Action” to add the selected Global action to the button.
  1. Remove the Selected Global actions, if they are not needed

We can add more than one global actions, with the button. It behaves like a drop-down menu.

In below screenshot, you can see that New Button (Record Button) and New Case form (Record Form) have been added to the Community page using the Community builder.

Community Members Can Access More Actions on Records 

Record Banners 

Community Members with necessary permissions can follow a record and use the quick actions defined for the object from the record banner on detail page. Salesforce recommends including quick actions only for the objects supported on Napili.
