I want to be able to add Assets as a tab view however it is not available for this. I have that a third party app for activities can display an Activities tab. I would like to know how to do this for Assets. Sample screenshot of Activities tab enter image description here

  • can you please share some image for the current view for Activities? – Chetan Gupta Jun 25 '14 at 12:55
  • @ChetanGupta Done. – Bartley Jun 25 '14 at 13:19
  • try the simple web tab to check if this meets your requirement. I am sure it will. – Chetan Gupta Jun 25 '14 at 13:32
  • Tried that and I end up with assets tab page within a page (url displayed in browser is eu3.salesforce.com/servlet/…) – Bartley Jun 25 '14 at 13:53
  • pls try this URL - "/02i?isdtp=mn". – Chetan Gupta Jun 25 '14 at 14:01

This isn't necessary anymore - as of Spring 15 there is a proper tab available. For existing orgs you may need to make the tab visible through each profile.


I recommend a simple Visualforce page and tab with an action that handles the redirect:

<apex:page tabStyle="Asset" action="/02i">

This has the advantage of no iframe and dynamic page height, which I think outweighs the disadvantage that the tab isn't highlighted.


I tried this and it worked.

Assets has a key prefix as '02i'. So if you point your URL at '/02i' it will open up the Assets tab view.

You can create a Web Tab and have the URL as '/02i?isdtp=mn' or create a VF tab and have the VF tab point to '/02i' in an iframe. Something like this..

<apex:page showHeader="false" sidebar="false" tabStyle="Asset">

    <iframe src="/02i" width="100%" height="500px"/>
