In the evolution of Salesforce’s Lightning framework, the Page Layout feature remained rooted in the past. However, a recent breakthrough has transformed this landscape: the introduction of Salesforce Dynamic Forms. Dynamic Forms, a remarkable Salesforce feature, empowers users to customize record detail pages directly from the Lightning Page. This eliminates the need to navigate through separate menus in Setup, streamlining the User Interface configuration process.

Understanding Dynamic Forms in Salesforce

Dynamic Forms serve as Salesforce’s bridge between Classic’s Page Layouts and Lightning Pages. They enable you to configure displayed fields and their organization right from the Lightning App Builder. This accelerates UI configuration significantly.
Moreover, Salesforce Dynamic Forms are not confined to Custom Objects alone. While they excel in this area, Salesforce acknowledges the demand for extending this functionality to Standard Objects, and they’re already working towards it.

Benefits of Utilizing Salesforce Dynamic Forms

Upgrade from Page Layouts:
Enjoy the freedom to add fields and sections wherever needed, even on separate tabs if required.

Streamlined Assignment Model:
Dynamic Forms consolidate Lightning page assignment, simplifying the process compared to the dual model involving both a Lightning page and a page layout.

Enhanced Layout Flexibility:
Use visibility rules to dynamically show or hide fields and sections based on user interactions.

Effortless Layout Management:
Manage fields and sections seamlessly within the Lightning App Builder, eliminating the need for the page layout editor.

Reduction in Page Layouts:
Drastically reduce the number of required page layouts using component visibility rules, streamlining your system.

Implementing Dynamic Forms on Your Salesforce Platform

Create or Migrate a Page:
Open the desired Lightning page for a custom object. Select the “Record Detail” or “Highlights Panel” component, then click “Upgrade Now.”For a new page, navigate to your custom object, select “Lightning Record Pages,” and click “New.”


Add Fields to a Component:
After adding the “Field Section” to your page, include individual fields. Remember, you can place a “Field Section” in various locations, not limited to tabs.


Conditional Visibility:
Make fields and components conditionally visible to specific users or profiles. Note that field visibility and field section visibility behave differently.


Plan for Page Performance:
Opt for tabs or accordions for improved performance and load speed, rather than overloading the initial page with numerous “Field Section” components.

Incorporate a Mobile Component:
Ensure that mobile users have access to the “Details” fields by adding the “Record Detail – Mobile” component to your pages.

Remember, while implementing Dynamic Forms in Salesforce, maintaining the standard page layout is essential for the mobile interface, as it relies on the page layout rather than Dynamic Forms.
