I am very new to Salesforce. I am stuck at a point where I have to add/insert records in one or more custom objects.

The details (such as name, address, phone) to be inserted in the custom object are entered by the user in a pop-up form. Once the required information is entered by the user and the'SAVE' button is clicked the data should get stored in a custom object in a single record.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    welcome to sfse juhi, could you share the code you've already written ? Have you already looked into "DML methods/documentation ?" Jul 15, 2014 at 19:59
  • Welcome to SFSE. Are you hitting an error of some kind? Where are you stuck? If you are just giving the forum a list of requirements looking for code, this question will likely go unanswered. If you have attempted this and have hit a wall or barrier of some sort, please let us know where you are stuck, share your code so far and we would be glad to help. Jul 15, 2014 at 20:06

I can not comment on the system, as I do not have enough reputation yet, but I hope the system admins will allow me to put my answer/comment here.

You mentioned popup form, is that a requirement? If you need a popup form, then it may be a visualforce wizard/form which you may need to create using Apex, or another way is to create custom buttons and use some URL hacking to create new records.

Below is a link to something I did, using a new button to create new records on custom objects - see if that might give you some ideas : Creating a stopwatch in salesforce which calculates total time elapsed without using apex or visualforce

When you create a new button, Salesforce will ask you how the page will act when you click on the button. There will be an option for popup. In my example, I chose to keep it on the same page.

If a popup form is not a requirement, then once you create a new custom object, make it available to view for the users by create a tab for it. Once a tab is created, users could click on it, and then there will be a button for new record there. However, at this point, you must be wary of permissions - roles and profiles and any custom Public Groups or permission sets which might restrict users from viewing the object and the records.

I know this is a very generalised answer, but hopefully that is a start.
