Custom Clone Button in Salesforce

Salesforce provides Clone functionality for some standard objects(Standard Clone button), However some standard objects do not have this button. For this purpose of cloning we will need to create custom button that will perform the functionality of cloning.

This cloning functionality can be achieved by writing a javascript for this custom button.

As an example lets create a custom button “Clone” on Account object that will clone the record.

Simply override your custom button “Clone” with the following javascript and you will have your custom Clone button that functions exactly like standard clone button


Note: retUrl specifies the location where you want to be on press of back button.
