Select Related Record Values from Record Variables with One Click

Use the arrow navigation to move up from one related record to another. Select a value up to 10 relationship levels beyond the original record variable.

Where: This change applies to Lightning Experience and Salesforce Classic in Essentials, Professional, Enterprise, Performance, Unlimited, and Developer editions.

How: Now, click > to move to a related record. Previously, selecting the value of a related record from a record variable was a manual process. If you wanted to select the parent account owner from a contact record variable called myContact, you’d have to explicitly enter {!myContact.Account.Parent.OwnerId}.

A variable called {!ownerId} is being assigned a value selected by clicking the arrow to move to a related record.
