I am looking to add ?isdtp=mn to the end of my Log A Call button's URL so I am able to pop the page with no sidebar or header.

When I add isdtp to the end of the URL link for the Log A Call button, I get no response in Lightning. I am curious if anyone knew the "why" behind this functionality.

So my question is why can't I add isdtp=mn to the end of my Log A Call URL in a Lightning console? I am able to do so in Salesforce Clasic.

According to screenshots you are not using Lightning console, rather using Classic Console.

In the console mode to open a window without header and side bar use srcUp(pageUrl);

The following piece of code handles both Console and Classic Mode to display the screen without sidebar and header.


var pageUrl = '{!URLFOR($Action.Activity.LogCall)}'; 
var parameters = '?title=Call&who_id={!Lead.Id}'; 
var link = pageUrl + parameters; 
if (sforce.console.isInConsole()) 
} else { 
    window.open(pageUrl + '&isdtp=mn' ,'_blank'); 
  • So this actually worked without the srcUP(pageURL). I just needed to add in 'target: _blank' to the window.open - window.open(pageUrl + '&isdtp=mn', 'Window Name', 'target: _blank'); The conditional wrapped around it is a great idea, this way it can pop differently for classic or lightning.
