Dynamic Forms in Salesforce

With Dynamic Forms in Salesforce, users can move fields or sections from the page layout to individual components. That can further be configured into the Lightning UI Builder.

In this way, the user can create forms dynamically similar to other components on the custom object.

Features of Dynamic forms in Salesforce

  • Fields and sections can be placed anywhere on a page layout, allowing for greater flexibility in page design.
  • Visibility rules can be used to show and hide fields and sections in dynamic forms.
  • The Lightning Form Builder provides an easier way to manage fields and sections on pages, without having to edit the page layout.
  • This can reduce the number of page layouts and record types you need, by using component visibility rules.
  • Assign a single Lightning page model to your Lightning pages instead of having a dual page model where you assign a Lightning page and a page layout.

Dynamic Forms affects not only how your users see fields on a record page, but also what they see when they click to edit, create, or clone a record. On Dynamic Forms-based pages, the fields that users see when creating, editing, or cloning come from the fields on the page, not from the page layout.
