Salesforce Lightning Features

Create New Accounts Lightning Fast with Account Autofill

Account Autofill Option is used in Lightning Experience. This option is used to display the list of US based Company names when we start to type the Account Name. So that we can select the Company name from the available list if it is present in the list; otherwise we can type the actual name.

To use the Account Autofill feature, we need to enable the Account Autofill setting:

Go to => Set up => Build => Customize => Accounts => Account Settings => Click Edit => Select Enable Account Autofill option.

Once the company name from the available list is selected, then the other fields like Phone, Website, Ticker Symbol, Billing Address Information like Street, city, State, Zip/ Postal Code and Country are filled automatically.
