I would like to add a button to a page layout which when clicked would cause all the related lists to refresh.

Is there a page event I can trigger to make this happen?

  1. Is is possible?
  2. How would I achieve it?
  • Why won't you just reload the window? It's the same button and after page refreshing the related lists will be updated. – Mariia Illarionova Mar 20 at 11:36
  • @MariiaIllarionova because my client wants a button which only refreshes the related lists – Robs Mar 20 at 11:37

    force:refreshView can do this for you but you'd need a quick action. – sfdcfox Mar 20 at 12:27

    Just out of curiosity, what is the use case? At any given point of time there will be not more than say 5 records with limited number of fields that can be displayed on any related list. What would be the significance of creating a custom solution to refresh just that set of records? – Jayant Das Mar 20 at 13:44
  • @JayantDas there are after update triggers which callout to external apis, and information is recorded in related lists. So a quick refresh would enable to user to quickly see the feedback. A full page refresh would take longer, and would require opening the correct tab and maybe even scrolling down... – Robs Mar 20 at 14:21
