I'm using the Community Builder to customize the Details layout of a few objects.
Part of what we want is to show a few fields of a related object. For example, let's say I'm showing the Contact record, I want to be able to show a few fields of the related Account record. Something like Contact.Account.Name.
Now, I know that there is a Lightning Component called Related Record which does exactly that.
But here's the thing: I can't see that component in the doohickey on the left in the Builder. I can see it in the regular Lightning App Builder page for this object, but not in the community.
I tried making a custom Action for update as I've seen recommended, but it's still not working.
Is it a template thing? Is this just not available for Communities? Is there something else I could try?

If its not visible in communities implies that its not available for communities as there is no specific settings/config to make it available in communities.

One out of the box solution is to use a product from Salesforce Labs called "Enhanced Lightning Grid". Based on your requirement it looks like this will suit your use case.


  • Have you seen anywhere in the official docs that says this is not available to Communities? Products on the AppExchange are not the answer to this question, nor a good solution. Dec 23, 2018 at 13:02

    I cant find the doc to indicate this behaviour, You have to raise a case to get justification from SF end for this. Also SF is built on config first pattern, if one can get things done by installing a free product, which would save code hours and is robust(Its built by SF to add features which are not in standard feature-set) its a good solution.
