The actions in the action bar, list item actions, and associated action menus are divided up into groups. The arrangement of these groups is fixed, but the order of actions within the groups can vary based on the object and the actions that are present on the global publisher layout or on an object’s page layout.
|Action Group 1||Action Group 2||Action Group 3||Action Group 4||Action Group 5||Action Group 6|
|Set of actions predefined by Salesforce. These can vary depending on the page the user is viewing.||Set of actions predefined by Salesforce. For most objects, this set contains only the Edit standard button.||Remaining publisher actions, in the order defined on either the global publisher layout or the object page layout.||Remaining record actions.|
Not every object or page displays every group. Action groups 3, 4, and 5 respect the ordering of the actions as defined by the global or object page layouts, with a few exceptions, as you’ll see in the next table.
Here’s the breakdown of which actions are contained in each group for each object or page.
As we mentioned, some actions are in fixed positions. In places where you see a numbered list in the table, this is the fixed order that those actions appear in on the action bar, list item actions, and in the respective action menus.
For example, for the Account object, the standard Chatter Post action is fixed in the fourth position. Regardless of where you put the Post action in the Publisher Actions section of the account page layout, Post always displays in the fourth position when viewing accounts in Salesforce1.
However, deletion of actions is always respected. So in our example, if you delete the Post action from the account page layout, the remaining actions move up and you see Edit in the fourth position.
