I created a custom object which when saved creates a calendar Event using an Apex trigger. Am able to populate all of the desired fields in the Event except the Related To field. I want the Related To Object to inherent the custom object name and the Related To field the customer object record name.

Thanks!

  • eve.recordid should be eve.id. You don't need to set what.type.

Set the WhatId on the event record to your custom object's ID. Here's an example:

trigger createEventForCustomObject on CustomObject__c (after insert) {
    Event[] events = new Event[0];
    for(CustomObject__c record: Trigger.new) {
        events.add(new Event(WhatId=record.Id, Subject='Hello', ActivityDateTime=DateTime.now()));
    }
    insert events;
}

  • Thanks. Should have included my code as I am still having a problem.
