I have a requirement to add a custom tab(create a new custom object record) in the activity composer along with new meeting, new to do and Email standard tabs. I was wondering if there is any possible way to add the custom global action on the activity composer?

Any Input is appreciated enter image description here


  • According to documentation help.salesforce.com/… it looks like you can only add activity related actions to this tab (Event and Task, Log A Call and Send Email actions) Jul 12, 2018 at 8:37
  • I know this is an old thread...but have you managed to solve this?

  • I have the same question, the documentation seems to insinuate that "Lighting Component" type Global Actions (Which are controlled by the Salesforce Mobile and Lightning Experience Actions section of Page Layout) appear in the Highlights panel of a Lightning Record Page - but the -Chatter- (Activity Composer? It's description is "Chatter publisher and the feed", though not a requirement that you use any Chatter here...) component renders only a subset of Global or Record Quick Actions. Documentation and guidance = FUBAR, IMOP. May 22, 2019 at 18:14
  • One possibility: Remove ALL "Activity" related Global/Object Quick Actions from Page Layout, create a Custom Lightning Component and insert it into the Lightning Page immediately above the Activity Composer (don't know what it's called anymore...) May 22, 2019 at 18:18
