Allow VisualForce Detail Page to be an edit form

Development (Apex, LWC & VF)

I would like to create a VisualForce page to override the Edit page for my objects. I can do this now, but I have to build the form by hand. Please enable the "Detail" component, which renders the correct page layout for the object/profile combo, to be put into edit mode. This would be incredible, because I could then put a conditions-based redirect after the save action to send my User to the next action. This could be: * a page for next steps on a recently won Opportunity * a page outlining research steps for a newly created Account This is a very powerful platform feature I'd love to see!

    This Idea is currently under review by our product team.

    Thanks to the recent enhancements we announced at Dreamforce 2014, every Idea that surpasses the new minimum point threshold (2,500 points) will be sent to the product team for review in their roadmap planning process. Once they make a determination, an update will be posted. 
    Our main goal with this big initiative is to provide you answers. While we would love to deliver every Idea- there will be ones that we won’t be able to pursue. When and if that happens we’ll explain why and provide alternative solutions if possible. To date, we’ve delivered over 2 million vote points, so your role in developing our product strategy is critical! We are extremely excited about this enhanced level of transparency and look forward to improving your IdeaExchange experience and deepening the level of collaboration between you and our product managers.
