I am very recent to salesforce.com so i don't have much idea about it. I have a requirement in which requires that a text field be created or removed depending on a pick list value. For example I have 2 fields "Issues" and "Comments". according to the requirement when if i choose the value 'others' then the field "Comments" Should be visible, otherwise the field should be removed. I don't think the above scenarios can be accomplished by using Formula Editor or Validations. Is there any way in which the above mentioned can be achieved?


  • Is your question directly to do with doing this is Salesforce1, or for communities? Or is this just a standard salesforce UI feature you want to do this with? – pchittum Jan 30 '14 at 11:12

This cant be done on standard page. You have to go through VF page to implement custom logic.

  • Are u saying that i should create a "custom Visualforce tab" and then add a VF page with a logic? In that case i will have to start the page from scratch for just this one requirement?? – user3197916 Jan 31 '14 at 6:13
