New Button on Object Home does not load Visualforce Override in Salesforce1 and Lightning Experience.
Last updated 2018-05-05 ·Reference W-3339410 ·Reported By 2 users
The New button on Object Home page has inconsistent behavior between platforms dependent on if the standard New button is included in the List View Search Layout. If it is not included in the List View Search Layout then any Visualforce override set on the standard New button is ignored.
- Create a simple Visualforce page and make it available for Salesforce1/Lightning Experience.
- Set the Visualforce page as the New override for an object. Ensure the object has multiple record types available.
- Edit the object’s List View Search Layout to add or remove the standard New button. Toggling this shows different behavior for the New button on Object Home page.
1.)Ensure Search Layout for objects “New” button added to “List View” layout.
2.)Login to Lightning Experience or Salesforce1 via iOS or Android Downloadable App.
3.)*Notice “New” button displays and honors Standard “New” button override.*
4.)Edit Search Layout for object to remove standard “New” button from “List View” layout.
5.)Repeat Step 2.
6.)*Notice Standard override is not honored and standard pages display.*
Make sure to include the standard "New" button on objects List View Search layout.
