Create New Opportunity Record Linked to an Existing Account Record

In this guide we will demonstrate how to create a new Opportunity record that is linked to an existing Account record in Salesforce with a Formyoula mobile form. This mobile form can be completed while the mobile device is offline and the new record will be created on Salesforce once the device regains internet connection. Both Salesforce and non-Salesforce users can complete Formyoula mobile forms and the new records will be created on Salesforce. You can create any number of records on standard or custom object with a single Formyoula mobile form. Child record creation is supported using repeat group elements.

5. Drag and drop a Salesforce Lookup field from the “Salesforce” section. This will be used to assign the new Opportunity to an existing Account in Salesforce.
