Is it possible to add salesforce lightning quick actions in Lightning Experience Calendar Section.

  • There is a lightning component c:SomeQuickAction, it implements "force:lightningQuickActionWithoutHeader,force:hasRecordId"
  • I have created a lightning quick action for this component and I have added it to the page layout of Event Object under salesforce1 and lightning experience actions.

Yet I am not able to see this quick action in the Salesforce Lightning Experience Calendars for Events ? Is there any other configurations apart from this ?

  • Try implementing force:lightningQuickAction. – Vibhu Dadhichi Apr 4 '17 at 10:34

I don't think it's possible atleast in the current release. Though the calendar layout is associated with event , the layout is not actually same for both the event and calendar standard component in lightning experience. Hence it could be a limitation as of now. For now you might have to go ahead with a custom calendar of your own or try an alternate approach like global actions ( though it would not suit most use case scenarios at least it did not suit me ).

As I too faced a similar issue of this kind. Hence I have posted​ a new idea in Salesforce idea exchange for quick actions on calendar component in lightning experience . Hope Salesforce delivers it in the near future until then we will have to make due without object specific lightning quick actions on calendar layouts​.

    Also, you can comment on their GitHub issue tracker here: github.com/salesforce-ux/design-system/issues – akcorp2003 Apr 5 '17 at 16:50
  • I thought this link dealt only with slds ux designs & it's issues .. the one that we are experiencing is more of a feature request ( Salesforce functionality rather than UX ). – StormBr34ker Apr 6 '17 at 6:10
