since we are migrating to Lightning, I am experiencing some issues with a functionnality that we have. What I need is when i click New, the Name is auto populated for example with 'System'( this is used on the save, System is replaced by a number according to the type etc)
Before, we have overriden the new button for several object with a scontrol, that concatenate to the URL Name=System. That s-control was used on several object.
Now with Lightning, s-control are not supported, and also looks like the new record page is only in a modal.
I was thinking to use a lightning component, but New button is not yet supported for lightning component. Also how the prepopulate the Name field? I was thinking of a visual force page that redirects to a lightning component but how to prepopulate the Name field? That also means that I need to create a VF page for each object.
The workaroung i found is maybe a global action, and a predefined value for Name, but if possible I have really wanted to use the new button on the objects... The layout for each global action is limited and redirection too.
If anybody have faced a similar issues, I would be happy to see
