Managing Buttons or Links

In order to cover certain business use cases, administrators must create new buttons or links or edit existing buttons or links.

Info

The page customization, including the button and link management, differs between Salesforce Classic and Salesforce Lightning.

Standard Button Components

In Lightning Experience, JustOn provides custom button bars on the invoice and statement detail pages that apparently duplicate a number of buttons included in the action menu. These components do, however, not behave exactly the same. For details, see Why does JustOn duplicate invoice and dunning action buttons?
