“Create” on the object for the kind of record you’re creating
Before you create a record, make sure you’re aware of any guidelines for the kind of record you’re creating.
Click the tab for the kind of record you want to create. You’ll start from that object’s Home page. For example, click the Accounts tab if you want to create an account record.
Select a record type if you’re prompted to.
Enter values in the fields. Required fields are identified with a red bar ().
Most objects have field definitions in the Salesforce help. Just search the help for the object name + “fields”. For example, if you’re creating or editing an account record and want to know more about your options in the Industry drop-down list, look up “Account Fields” in the help.
When you finish entering values for your new record, click Save, or click Save & New to save the current record and create another. If you navigate away from the page before clicking Save, you may lose your changes.
