Allow page layouts to display fields from related objects

Customization & App Building

For usability and productivity reasons, it is often useful to be able to see parent fields and child fields on the same detail page. For example, on a Contact detail page, it may be useful to see Account fields. Or display an Asset Serial Number (custom field) on the Case Page.

    With the foundation laid via Dynamic Forms, a feature based on this idea is included in the next cycle of IdeaExchange Prioritization from May 17-31. Imagine a scenario where you have information in a “related” record, such as a Broker’s details, that you would like to display, or even edit, on the same “record” page. This is known as a Spanning Field. Or a scenario where you need to view unrelated data from multiple entities on a single page.

    These scenarios are not supported today without custom component development. This effort will allow the building of multi-entity pages declaratively, directly within App Builder.
