We have a Lead Form on our website, which generates leads in SF.

In the form, there will be a dropdown with the lead owner (SF value), when the lead is collected in SF, I need that the assignment will be according to that drop down field.

  • This should be automatic - I don't want to use assignment rules - as the parameters change all the time. (the leads owner is a very dynamic list with our org)

Is it possible?

If your dropdown values have the OwnerID values (or something you could find via SOQL) you could set them via trigger.

  1. Have the dropdown map to a custom field on the Lead
  2. Have the Lead set to a default owner
  3. Have the trigger inspect the custom field and update the OwnerID appropriately
