Custom Buttons Overview

Custom Buttons are used to quickly execute actions directly from a record. There are 4 different types of buttons: Hyperlink, Webhook, Lambda, and AppConnect Recipe.

Custom Buttons can be added to page layouts in CRM, Marketing, and Custom Apps.

Admins can add up to six buttons to a Page Layout but can create as many as they want per object.

If you have an AppConnect subscription, you can build Recipes to automate your Custom Button processes. Learn more.

Button Appearance

There are two Button display options. They can be either text, which displays a plain text word within the button, or an icon that displays an image chosen by the user.


Button Types

This feature is available to Professional and Enterprise customers, but the Lambda button is only available on Enterprise plans.
