Custom List buttons(buttons on the related list) not showing up in Ipad(Salesforce 1 app).

I see there is a knowledge article from salesforce which says

Custom Buttons are only supported in Salesforce1 if their "Content Source" is Visualforce and they are "Detail Page Buttons"

The Visualforce page must also have the "Available for Salesforce Mobile Apps" checkbox checked.

Are Custom list buttons Supported with the Salesforce1 App?


The closes equivalent of a related list button in Salesforce1 that I've seen would be either:

  1. A publisher action on the object itself
  2. A custom page you embed as a mobile card which will show up in the related lists area

Without knowing more details about what your buttons are doing, I can't really be more specific about which to use.

The main thing to remember is that Salesforce1 on the mobile device is a totally different use case from the full browser, and often times the custom button doesn't even make sense for a mobile scenario. Make sure you really evaluate if the action the custom button gives your users is applicable on a mobile device, or if it's something the user should be going to the full site for.
