  • Hi Vikas,

    I don't think you can open records from workflows, I haven't seen anything that would suggest that you can. The only code I've seen to open records is JS, which only works in the GUI, which makes sence. Consider that you import leads using whatever technique and for each lead an appointment is created and then the wf tries to open a window, where would that window open?

  • Since workflow runs in background it will difficult to achieve this requirement, however it is possible to have java script running on Lead Form (assuming you would be on lead form at this point ) which checks if opportunity record created or not every few seconds (or specific interval) and if it found one then opens this record.
