In what context do Salesforce1 direct links work? They're described on Slide 25 here.

How to implement the Direct Email link

com.salesforce.salesforce1://entity/view?entityId=placeDashboardIDhere?entityId=placeYourObjectIDhere

I'm viewing my email with the link on my smart phone in Gmail. The link, set up as specified above, does not appear as a link in the email message. If I start the string with "http://" or "https://", I still don't get a link in the message I receive. I'm using an Android phone. Do I need to be in the phone's email app or maybe a browser instead of Gmail for this to work?

Has anyone got this direct email link to work? What application did you use to view/click on the link?

The link should be in the format

com.salesforce.salesforce1://entity/view?entityId={!Contact.Id}

This should work

  • In order for " ... {!Contact.Id}" to resolve to an Id, we have to be in Salesforce, right? That's my question. In what context does this work? The syntax is clear enough, but where am I when I click this? Salesforce? An email program? A web browser? Where?

  • You would be in your browser. Feb 8, 2015 at 3:04
