  • Hi,

    Lead and contact records are different so when you assign one, the other one won't get cascading.

    To do it, I suggest you can do one of following solution:

    1. Create a workflow trigger when Lead is assigned --> Read your contact and assign them to new user too.

    2. The same as workflow but you create a plugin to do it.

    I prefer solution #1 though. It's easy without code and I can do it by yourself easily.

    Hope it helps.

  • Hi Abhijeet,

    This is an example how you create a workflow and assign a record (it's not for lead though). You can check it out.


    BTW, CRM SDK is your friend: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=24004

    Hope it helps.

  • OOB Lead entity does not have a 1:M relationship with Contacts. One lead can be converted and created as a single contact.

    If you have configured custom relationships where you can see multiple contacts under lead, you can acheive you auto assignment by configuring the 1:M relationship between lead and contact. On the relationship window you can set the cascade effect. Set appropriate Cascade relationship for Assign.

  • Lead and  contact are in referential relation,and it is a system relation you dnt have option to customize it

    for that you need to create a workflow or plugin do your job like above mention.

  • Hi Linh

    I tried your workflow solution for that i follow further steps

    1.Create one lead of type lookup in lead entity as LeadContact

    2.Create one workflow on lead entity and set following attributes.

                    Start When-Record is assign

                     add step as Assign Record in workflow in that

                       1.In "Assign" dropdown i select LeadContact

                        2. and in "To" i select "Set Properties" and i am sending you one image which shows all other settings
