Step By Step Guide To Creating Data Entry Form in Salesforce LWC

Data Entry Form in Salesforce LWC

This is another guide for beginners on how to create a simple data entry form in Salesforce LWC (Lightning Web Component).

LWC in Salesforce has a library of pre-defined components that makes it easy and fast for you to customize Salesforce as per your requirements, when you can’t meet these requirements using declarative point-and-click capabilities.

In this guide we will be using the “lightning-record-form” component of LWC to create a simple data entry form with minimum coding. This component allows you to add, view or update records real quick without writing any corresponding code in Apex.

Here are some of the other features that we will be exploring in this guide:

  1. Use “lightning-record-form” component.
  2. Import objects and fields references using importing references using the @salesforce/schema syntax.
  3. Display a custom toast notification on successful creation of the record.

And this guide will cover, step-by-step with screenshots, how to:

  1. Create Data Entry Form in LWC
  2. Deploy LWC to Salesforce Org
  3. Show LWC in Salesforce UI
  4. Test LWC

If you are beginner in LWC, this will be an excellent guide to show you how to create a simple data entry form in just under 15-20 minutes.

  1. I created the LWC and added it to a Sandbox Community. Nothing displays in the community, despite my adding lightningCommunity__Page
    lightningCommunity__Default. in the Component box is a message stating that this Component has no properties. My search continues to find a tutorial on how to add a form to an Experience Site.

    1. Hi Ray, my knowledge on LWC is rather limited so I may not be able to provide much of help here. But it should be possible – create a form in LWC and expose it in experience site.
