  • When you click on custom action, it should update the picklist and show a message in quick action modal that record is updated to 'draft' or other value? Sep 13, 2019 at 9:24

The force:editRecord does not allow you to pre-define any value other recordid of the record to be update. As a workaround:-

You can use quick action of type update a record by pre-define a value for the field you are looking for. It will give you the picklist value selected by default when you click on the button. Based on the user interaction with save button, the value will be get saved.

A sample example with step is:-

  1. In the object management settings for accounts, go to Buttons, Links, and Actions.
  2. Click Create a Case.
  3. In the Predefined Values related list, click New.
  4. From the Field Name drop-down list, select Status.
  5. Set its value to New.
  6. Click Save.
  7. Now we need to remove the Status field from the action layout. On the action detail page, click Edit Layout.
  8. Click the Status field on the layout and drag it up to the palette.
  9. Click Save.

Tip You can remove a required field from the action layout, but make sure that the field has a predefined value. Otherwise, users can’t create records.
