If you migrated from Classic to Lightning, you must have suffered from the slower loading speed at least once. As an admin, it is then crucial to create some shortcut to save the clicks for your users. To add a custom button for each record in a related list will be a great example for saving time.
Sadly there is no out-of-the-box functionality for us to add buttons in the drop-down at the moment. However, this can be achieved through flow! We just have to be a little more creative.
This flow is applicable to cloning of all kinds of objects, and can be put in either each row of a related list, or on the upper-right drop-down of a detail page.
Lulu Mobile uses standard Account and Case objects to track their support tickets. They often receive similar cases from each customer, so they would like to have the functionality to clone cases without having to change too many fields. The main fields that will be different are Subject, Description, and Internal Comments, while the rest can just be cloned without even showing on the screen. They want the clone button to appear on each record in a related list, so they don’t need to click into each case’s detail page.
As we cannot add custom buttons in the drop-down for each record, we can achieve this by having a formula field which will launch a screen flow.
