  • Hi BajiraoMastani,

    Lets say your A and B entities are Accounts and Contacts. You're on Account's form and you click on Contact's navigation link (Your associated view).

    If you then click on a specific Contact, you can press the Run Workflow button (which can trigger on-demand Workflows, where you can implement the logic to update fields from the Contact or it's parent Account).

    Hope that was helpful,
