Object Specific Actions in Salesforce


Object Specific Actions Salesforce lets users quickly create or update records, log calls, send emails, and more in the context of a particular object.

There are 5 types of object-specific actions:


Create Records:

It creates records that are automatically associated with related records.


Update Actions:

It makes it easy to edit the records. We can define the fields that will be available for updates.


Log a Call:

It lets users enter notes about calls, meetings, or other interactions that are related to a specific record.


Custom Action:

These are VisualForce Pages or canvas app that let users interact with or create records that have a relationship to an object record. The Visualforce page for an object-specific custom action must include the standard controller for the relevant object.


Send email actions:

These are available only in cases. It gives users access to a simplified version of the case feed e-mail action on Salesforce1.


Note: Action Type cannot be edited once an action is created.
