I have a set of list views for my Custom_Object__c and these list views are visible in the community. I need to create a custom action for the Custom_Object__c list view. Then user should be able to mass update the status of each selected record to Submitted.

I was able to create a custom action and populate Status field to Submitted. Then user can save or cancel. Please see the image below.

enter image description here

But what I really need is, since I'm setting it only as Submitted I don't want the user to see what are the fields changing. In addition he should see just a confirmation window. The selected record ids should be passed to a apex method for further processing.

Is this capable? If so, please guide me.

The Lightning list view will does not allow you add the list view actions of all types. It will only allow custom actions of type Create a record or update a record. You already using the update a record custom action.

If you just want users to see a confirmation window, You can go with visualforce page having Standard List Controller. Read more here:- Adding Custom List Buttons using Standard List Controllers

You can customise your visualforce page according to your requirement.
