Business value

Users do not have to navigate away from a form to create or edit a related record. This greatly improves productivity by reducing clicks and eliminating the need to do unnecessary navigation back and forth across forms.

Feature details

Users no longer have to navigate away to add or edit a related record. Makers will be able to open a main form in a dialog directly from another main form. This greatly improves overall productivity by reducing clicks and unnecessary navigation when working with related records. This feature will be available with the 'navigateTo' api and can be used from a command bar, event, or plugin to open a main form record in a dialog experience.
