Pages

This article provides an overview of the look and behavior of Skuid pages.

Tab/List pages

Skuid tables make it possible to do even more from the tab page.

  1. Search and filter the records in your tables to narrow down the list.
  2. Sort tables based on whichever fields you want.
  3. Click to add a new record to this table. (This button can be removed)
  4. Add summaries on any number field.
  5. Export this table as a spreadsheet.

Edit records without leaving the list page

All of these actions on a table can be removed or added as you wish. You can also create your own table actions.

  1. Use checkboxes to mass update/edit/delete records in a list.
  2. Double click to edit individual records inline.
  3. Click on the red icon to delete records.
  4. Save or Cancel your changes.

Detail Pages

  1. Easily edit record details with the field editor component. Add as many columns as you want.
  2. Add tabs to organize your related lists and cut down on scrolling.
  3. You can also include custom related lists, or even unrelated lists on your pages. This is a related list we “made up” - other opportunities associated with the same account.
  4. Include a suite of standard and custom actions in your pages.

Chatter

Easily integrate Chatter into any detail page with the Chatter Feed component.

Custom Popups

Queue Pages

The Queue component makes it easy to interact with records in a list. Just choose the record you want, and its detail page will be displayed in a related page include.

New Pages

With Skuid you can create custom New Pages, Clone Pages and Wizards to clarify your business processes.

Continuous Improvement

Even when pages are in production, you can always click Edit Page to go back into the page builder and update them. You can use CSS to rebrand your pages, and with Skuid’s Javascript API, the possibilities are virtually infinite.

Share a Skuid page between orgs

With Skuid you don’t have to use a Sandbox if you don’t want to! You can do lots of Skuid development without any new VF, Apex, or resources at all; you can develop and test pages in Skuid and then go live with them when you’re ready. If you are building a managed package, you can actually include your Skuid pages and overrides in your package resources, and they will all be loaded into customers’ orgs automatically. For an overview of this, see the tutorial Why build your app with Skuid?.

The Skuid XML Editor enables you to take any page that has been created in Skuid and copy and paste it into your own org. Check out our page repository to find custom pages and to share your own pages with other Skuid users.

To deploy Skuid pages across orgs, e.g. between Dev, Testing, Q/A, Production, you can do one or both of two things:

For Single Pages in your org (or a handful of pages): follow the instructions in the Share a Skuid Page between orgs tutorial (described below).

For All of the Pages in your org: follow the instructions in the Export All Pages and Import Pages tutorial.

Step 1: View/Edit XML

In the Page Composer for the page you want to export, click View/Edit XML at the bottom of the page.

Step 3: Switch orgs

Open the page editor for the page you want to update, and click View/Edit XML.

In the desired org, create a new page, or open the page that you want to update. Click Save to activate the View/Edit XML link.

Step 4: Select and Paste

Select all and then click Paste.

Step 5: Save

Save your changes and return to to the Page Builder.

If the page XML is invalid, you won’t be allowed to Save:

Go back to the first page, and make sure that you copied all of the XML for this page. If you’re importing a page created by another Skuid user, you can get in touch with them and ask them to help you debug it.

Success!

Congratulations! You’ve successfully imported this page into a different org.

Don’t forget to check out our page repository on Github to find custom pages and to share your own pages with other Skuid users.

Salesforce Custom Labels

Note

Salesforce Custom Labels are currently only available when using a Salesforce on Salesforce.

Skuid allows you to use Salesforce custom labels, along with the Translation Workbench, to display public-facing text in users’ preferred languages. Learn more about creating custom labels in Salesforce.

For each custom label requested, Skuid will determine if there is a translation corresponding to the language of the user viewing the Skuid page. If there is, Skuid displays the translated text to the user.

Note

It is considered best-practice to use Custom Labels wherever displaying custom text to your users. Custom Labels support effective localization.

To access custom labels:

  1. In the page properties, click the Labels tab.
  2. Click on fa-plus-circle Add Label.
    • Label Id: Enter the label’s name as it appears in Salesforce’s Custom Labels page.

Note

To include a custom label in a template, use {{$Label.<LabelName>}}, e.g. {{$Label.Save}}.

For more information about using custom labels in Skuid, see Label Localization.

Troubleshooting

Recovering Deleted Pages

Skuid on Salesforce Only

Accidentally delete a Skuid page? You may still be able to get it back if you’re on Salesforce Classic ! Since Skuid pages are stored as data records, check your Salesforce Recycle Bin to see if you can undelete the page.
