Does anyone know how to add the checkbox column on related list in SF? I have a custom object that I'm try to get checkboxes for related list. Thanks

Without checkbox

With checkboxes


Add a custom list button to the custom object, and choose the "Show boxes for selection" box underneath the button type. When you add the button to the related list or list view, it will enable the checkboxes.

  • how to add such checkboxes in lightning experience? – p.samruddhi Mar 29 '17 at 5:51
  • in Lightning experience, you will have to click "View All". Not an ideal solution because the button is still visible on related list. If there was setting to show the button on "View All" screen, it would still have been OK. – Mitesh Sura Apr 17 '17 at 15:55
