In SF related lists, how can we filter records by values ? On Company page layout, we will have Contact related list once filter by one value and Contact related list second time filter by another value; works ?

I am taking a "best guess" at what your question is:

You want to add the Contact related list onto your Company page layout twice. Each time you do that, you want to "filter" by a different value.

Well, first off, you can not filter related lists. There is an Idea for similar functionality if you would like to vote on it. Secondly, you can not add the same related list onto a page layout twice. There is really no point to ever do that currently as they will both display the same information.

To do what you want to do, you need to add custom Visualforce/Apex.

  • You got my question correct; we need to display contacts separately on Company page by Contact Type. How about related lookup filter option; is that something different or we can use it somehow to meet my usecase, thx.
