Is there any way we can pre-populate Text for a lookup field in lightning just in the same way we used to do CF00N71000001zWxy=Test+User

I created a new button on the Account object to create the contact which prepopulate the Account look up.

The Custom Account Name field is a custom look up field for the account object.

See if this helps for you.
