I have created a task related to a custom object record which in turn is related to an account record. How would I create a button that would create/launch a new opportunity of a specific record type or failing that take me to the select opportunity record type page while holding onto the account id.

Try just put there


It will take you to new record on opportunity. Of course you have to put some record Type Id there

  • thanks, why have you "!Something"? where do I put this specifically?

  • Because I don't know your object name, you just have to put there Id of parent account, either from relation or formula field Mar 12, 2014 at 13:40
