Since the javascript buttons are not working on the lightning experience so we need a workaround for the same.

The related List does not support Action either in classic or Lightning. They only support button. You can create button of content Type:-

  1. URL
  2. Onclick JavaScript
  3. Visualforce Page

But, Onclick JavaScript does not appear in Lightning. It only comes in Classic.

So you are left with only two options, Either you go for button of content type URL or visualforce page. In your case, better to choose the URL as content type of button because you can easily navigate to your users via it if you don't have complex conditions.

If you have conditions like when to navigate where, choose Visualforce page route.

Note:- You should always choose the button of type List Button to make it appear in related List.
