Flashcards in Salesforce Admin Deck (25)
Have automatic relationships to other records and let users quickly create or update records, log calls, send emails, and more, in the context of a particular object. For example, you add an ________ on the Account object that creates contacts. If a user creates a contact with that action on the detail page for the Acme account, that new contact is associated with Acme. ________ live on the page layout for the object.
You create ________ in a different place in Setup than you create object-specific actions. They’re called ________ because they can be put anywhere actions are supported. Use ________ to let users log call details, create or update records, or send email, all without leaving the page they’re on.
There are several categories of actions, such as standard Chatter actions, default actions, mobile smart actions, custom actions, and productivity actions. The types of actions you see depends on the age and configuration of your org.
They offer a fast way for mobile users to launch a specific workflow in the Salesforce mobile app, like creating records, logging calls, or sharing files.
-Object-specific actions can update records.
-Object-specific actions can create records that are automatically associated with related information. For example, a user could initiate an action that simultaneously creates a contact and associates it with an account.
-One more big difference. To expose object-specific actions in the mobile app, you don’t add them to the global publisher layout like we did in the last unit. Rather, you make them available to users by editing the object’s page layout.
