Basic Setup - Step 3d for old Salesforce Mobile App Users - Setup SharinPix for Mobile (Classic Implementation)

If you have been through the Basic Classic implementation, you should already see the SharinPix album on the details tab. But it's not perfect and should be optimized by adding an action for SharinPix.

If you have been through both the Basic Classic Implementation and the Basic Lightning configuration you will still have to do the following steps to see a SharinPix Album on your mobile phone. 

Create a "SharinPix Album" Lightning Action

To create a 'SharinPix Album' lightning action:

  • Go to Setup, then Object Manager.
  • Select the object on which you intend to add the custom action. In this case, it is the Account object.
  • On the left-hand-side menu, select Button, Links and Actions.
  • Click on the New Action button.

From the Action Type picklist, select Lightning Component.

  • For the field Lightning Component, select <sharinpix>:SharinPixAlbum
  • For the field Height, enter 525px
  • For the field Standard Label Type, select None
  • For the field Label, enter SharinPix Album
  • The field Name will be auto-populated with the value SharinPix_Album
  • Click on Save

You can now add the newly-created action to the object's Page Layout.

Make the "SharinPix Album" Action available on the Layout

In this section, we will add the newly-created custom action onto the Account Page Layout.

To do so:

  • Head over to the Account Page Layout most relevant to your case.
  • Click on the Mobile & Lightning Actions option.
  • Drag and drop the SharinPix Album action onto the Salesforce Mobile and Lightning Experience Actions section.
  • Click on Save.

Test the "SharinPix Album" Lightning Action on your Desktop

If you access an Account record, the newly-created custom action should appear on the Page Layout as depicted below:

Upon selecting the action, the SharinPix Album is launched as shown below:

Hi Matthew,

Sorry for the long delay - we had an issue with our comment notification system which is now fixed.
Once the pictures are uploaded to your Salesforce, they will be available to view on their respective records using your browser or
the Salesforce app. Thank you.
