In this Salesforce tutorial, we will understand how to enable or add Quick Actions when Quick Actions are missing from Case page layout in Salesforce Lightning edition.
Recently, when our team was working on the Case Record Page, we came across an issue where the Quick Actions were missing from Case page layout in Salesforce Lightning. So, after trying multiple solutions and doing a lot of research, we came up with a general solution.
And in this tutorial, we will discuss this general solution in detail.
Quick Actions missing from Case in Salesforce Lightning
In Salesforce Lightning, we can easily notice that the Quick Actions on the Case record page appear a little different compared to other record pages. Moreover, the Quick Actions on Case Record Page are only available using the Chatter tab.
So, to access the Quick Actions for the Case object, we need to use Chatter Tab. Moreover, based on these factors, we can check for the various reason for this issue.
In Salesforce Lightning, there could be three main reasons why the Quick Actions are missing from the Case object page layout.
- First, when Feed Tracking is not enabled.
- Second, when the Chatter Settings is not enabled
- Third, when the Chatter component is not added to the Lightning Page.
Let us discuss the solution for both of these issues.
Method-1: Enable Feed Tracking in Salesforce Lightning
Step-1: First, log in to your Salesforce Lightning account and open the Home Setup page. For this, click on the gear icon (⚙️) and then click on the Setup option.
