I am trying to find a way to direct a user to the New Contact page automatically when a new account is created. I was thinking of using a VF page which overrided the edit on an account. The page would determine whether a new account had been created (I am assuming by looking at whether the created date is the same as current date or is there a better way?) and then if it is redirecting them to a new contact page, otherwise just go to the standard account view page.
Is there a better way to do this? Perhaps Visual Workflow? I do not know much about it and was wondering of that would be a better alternative.
Does anyone know what is a best practice regarding doing this?
