Apologies in advance, because I find quick actions and publisher actions confusing and I didn't find a clear-cut answer on forums or documentation...
We are trying to not reintroduce URL hacks, which we have previously used to create child records, which worked nicely to pre-populate fields based on the parent. However in order to be 'lightning ready' we are attempting new workarounds.
One thing that appealed to me was the 'Predefined Field Values' feature within a 'Create a Record' action.
However when setting up this up I don't see where I can put this button at the top of the page layout or the related list in classic? Are we really only limited to adding these in Chatter, because our company almost always 'hides the feed.'
Can we add 'Quick Actions' or 'Create a Record Actions' to the standard page layout?
I should note that I built the button on the Parent, to create Children and didn't see a way to build one on the Child.
