Triggers are supposed to work that way. They do not pre-populate data on the screens but only update it during the transaction.
Out of the box, you will not be able to pre-populate data. If you can create some lightning component, then you can utilize force:createRecord event here which lets you to open the standard screen for record creation with an option ...
You need to change your code somewhat to get it to even compile. Beyond that, you should move your update out of the loop.
public class UpdateContact implements Database.Batchable<sObject>
public Database.QueryLocator start(Database.BatchableContext BC)
return Database.getQueryLocator([Select id, Profil__c from Contact__c];
The documentation is a little misleading when it states: "The rule does not run when a record that previously met rule criteria is updated". Makes it sound like a record can't qualify again.
So for updated to work, the record needs to be updated from something different than the entry criteria condition, to something that equals the condition.
For example, ...
Different languages handle negative modulo differently. If you check Wikipedia's Modulo operation article, you'll see that negative results might be returned if the divisor is negative, the dividend is negative, or never, or undefined. Salesforce's implementation is no more or less correct than any other implementation. Unfortunately, if you always need a ...
Yes,You can do that. You need an additional DML statement. You need to do like this:-
Opportunity o = [Select Id, lookup__r.field__c, lookup__r.field2__c from Opportunity];
o.lookup__r.field__c = 'test';
update o; //it will update opportunity
update o.lookup__r; //it will update the relationship record
Those are technically 2 field updates, which means 2 workflow rules...(right?)
No, you can include multiple field updates in a single Workflow Rule.
A. I can do this in 1 process builder np but should I?-(because it's so insignificant?)
B. If I do this in process builder, should I do it using a new process or link it to another process that ...
This is the default behavior. System Admins (i.e. users with permission of Modify All/Modify All Data) can edit the locked records. Here is the link which states the same. You can go through this article which mentions what permissions are needed to edit the locked records.
If you are not seeing the lock/unlock button in the page layout, you need to check ...
You need to do a data clean up.
Export the data set of the records you want to update using dataloader. This will create a CSV file
Update the field values in Excel
Upload the revised dataset
Here is some docs on data loader: https://help.salesforce.com/articleView?id=data_loader.htm&type=5

Normally, for client side validaiton of input fields/values in lighting:recordEditForm's, I add an aura:id to the fields, and or/do my "validation" on field change or blur.
This is generally more intuitive than having to wait for clicking on next to see if any fields are not properly filled in.
If for whatever reason you need to perform the validation all ...
Found this (not the Best) workaround to get Object/field values.
Instead of Wizard page buttons, used Next/Back buttons on each Lightning:RecordEditForm (bottom of page).
Made the Next button type="submit", handled navigation in onClick() of button, now it fires onSubmit of RecordEditForm
onSumbit event flushes the edited field values to my own sobject ...
From your above comments, if you just want to update a field with errors and not throw errors, then you will need to use CASE function in your workflow instead of IF.
IF function should be used to determine if expressions are true or
false. Returns a given value if true and another value if false.
Your formula should be
The update DML command on the CertificationObjects will not update the Contact lookup fields' data - it only updates fields on the Certification__c record itself.
Try the following (EDIT - using Map to avoid duplicate Contact Id updates):
List<Certification__c> CertificationObjects = new List<Certification__c>();
CertificationObjects = [SELECT ...
In lieu of using a formula field, which would probably work in most cases, you can use a Process Builder on the Account to update the Customer of the Week record. The Process Builder has an option to update child records related to a parent record.
The report is a red herring here - it has nothing to do with the problem.
Given that you have on Object 2 a field Customer_Type__c that is a formula reference to a field on another object (the Account), and you wish to construct another field on Object 2 that concatenates Customer_Type__c with other fields, you can't use Workflow Rules. As cropredy noted in ...
Mark the field Client ID on Account as an External ID.
Then use dataloader to insert or upsert the Case records. The dataloader UI will ask you which foreign key on Account to match with, and which field on your Case upload file to use for that match.
As it is clear from your screenshot, You are using either an object-specific quick action or Global action, You can use setting predefined value for the fields you want on the action.
When you create actions, use predefined field values to set a value
for a field. Predefined values can help ensure consistency and make it
faster and easier for users to ...
You'll need to use UpsertData AMPscript function for this.
There are plenty of examples in Stack with solution provided for your use case.
Do note that this function works only in a landing, microsite or Cloud Page, or in SMS message and NOT in Emails.
Salesforce Data Entry Events are only triggered when a contact goes from a state of not meeting criteria to then meeting the criteria. Since the same contact that had already met criteria was updated, the event was not triggered.
See link here:
"When a record is updated, the rule runs only if the record meets rule criteria after the update. The rule does ...
