enter image description hereI have tried to implement custom console components for the Work Orders object, but cannot get them to appear in the console. I am trying to add simple 'out of the box' actions, Look up and Related Lists, as a stack in the left sidebar subtab. Custom Console tabs are enabled in our settings and I have all the permissions for our experience.

PX Width is set to 500, but have tried ranging from 30-999. I have tried auto size and manual heights.

I have hit save on both the Custom console page then again on the page layout editor. They are not collapsed on the page, they simply are not there. I gave it overnight last night incase it takes time to appear, but nothing still.

Is there anyone out there who can help?! Image of Work Order Image of Case w/ custom component Red arrow indicates what I'm trying to add to work order

  • What do you mean by custom console page? Do you mean a visual force page? Can you provide a screenshot of your console app (the full window) and maybe put something in using paint to demonstrate what you expect and show us what you are actually seeing? – gNerb Jan 12 '18 at 16:40
  • By custom console page, I mean the page where you customize the console. – Bennett C Jan 12 '18 at 16:57

    did you implemented flexipage:availableForAllPageTypes in component? – Manjot Singh Jan 12 '18 at 17:37
  • Is it a lightning component or a custom console component. Those are very different things. – gNerb Jan 12 '18 at 18:07

Unfortunately, the answer is that those types of components are not supported in lightning. if you navigate back to a console app in the classic view, you'll see your components are exactly where you would expect.


Salesforce has two different desktop user interfaces: Lightning Experience and Salesforce Classic. This module is designed for Salesforce Classic.
