You will be able to select a custom action that will launch a flow. (Take Pictures)

The flow will be launched and you will be prompted on the screen as shown below.

  • Upon clicking on the Take Before Pictures link, the SharinPix Mobile Application will be launched.

For the steps required to launch the SharinPix Mobile Application from the Salesforce Field Service Lightning App, refer to the following documentation:

Integrating SharinPix with Salesforce Field Service Lightning Mobile App

Launching SharinPix Mobile App from Salesforce Mobile App using Visualforce page

You can construct a Visualforce page to open the SharinPix Mobile App using the SharinPix Launcher Visualforce component.

The article, Using the Mobile Launcher Visualforce Component details how to implement this.

The component appears as a button available on the Salesforce Mobile App.

Launching SharinPix Mobile App from Salesforce Mobile App using Formula Field

It is possible to launch the SharinPix mobile app using a formula field found on the page-layout of an object. 

  • The formula field needs to be of type text.
  • Within the formula, the function HYPERLINK contains the SharinPix URL. 


In this example, the SharinPix mobile app is launched from the Salesforce mobile application.

In the screenshot below, the formula field Launch SharinPix Mobile App containing the SharinPix URL has been added to the detail page-layout of the Account object.

  • Upon clicking on this Open Camera App field, the SharinPix Mobile App is launched.

The formula behind Open Camera App field should be something like:

HYPERLINK('sharinpix://upload?token=' & SharinPix_Token_Part_1__c & SharinPix_Token_Part_2__c & SharinPix_Token_Part_3__c , 'Click to Open Camera', '_blank')


 SharinPix native mobile app integrates with Salesforce mobile using deeplink (URL starting with Sharinpix://). It does not work on a URL Button.

You can learn more about SharinPix deeplink syntax here.

Launching SharinPix Mobile App from Salesforce Mobile App with Lightning Action and Visual Force Page

In this context, the SharinPix Mobile app is launched from the Salesforce mobile application using  a custom action and the Case object.

The screenshot below shows the presence of a Quick Action Take Pictures. 

Upon clicking upon the Quick Action, a custom Visualforce Page is displayed. The Visualforce Page contains a SharinPix URL which in turn is used to launch the SharinPix Mobile Application.

Each SharinPix URL contains a different set of parameters which will launch the SharinPix Mobile Application into different modes.

When clicking upon the link Take Pictures with Camera, the SharinPix Mobile Application is automatically launched into Camera Mode.
