DeepLink in PP3 – Navigate directly to the portet

Hello All,

As per the standard process, it is expected behavior that the DEEP LINK takes the user to the first page after requesting “sf/employmentinfo” or any other page with employee’s personal and employment profile. The link will land in the FIRST Page and user needs to scroll down to the desired area.

 

As a workaround, kindly configure the following:

Use the below deeplink URL

 

/sf/liveprofile#mobileViewBlock/{userId}/{block}

 

{userId} – replace it with the ID of the USER

{block} – Following are the steps to get the value of the block (Below is the example of Job Information block)

 

Go to – Admin Center > Manage data, and find the following object.

Click on the Details link of the section where the block is present.

In the details dialog, select the subsection where the block is placed.

From the dialog box use the block ID (block1592).

In the same way, you can search for any block id of the portlet.

Thus using the user id and block id the following link can be used (Considering user id as sfadmin)  :

 

/sf/liveprofile#mobileViewBlock/sfadmin/block1592

 

Navigate to Manage Homepage, add a custom tile and click on the edit button of the tile (pencil icon)

Fill all the details. URL is the deep link created above (/sf/liveprofile#mobileViewBlock/sfadmin/block1592)

After saving, navigate to the user’s homepage (here ‘sfadmin’ homepage).

After clicking on the tile, the block (Job Information) will get open.

 

Kindly note – This configuration needs to be redone every time the People Profile page configuration changes as the Block ID will change.

 

Thank you, Nick and his EC Blackbelt team for providing this workaround.

 

Regards,

Dharmin

      If Business want to update one more custom Portlet mandatory at the time of user ID creation. Is it possible in SF?

      When I try to access a background element block, the following error occurs. Is there a way to specify the block type to "background block"?

      errorId=null, timestamp=null, errorMessage=Cannot read property 'blockType' of null, errorName=TypeError, server=140sc44bcf01t, versionInfo=Release%3A%20b1908.20191010120924%0A%20%20%20%20Server%3A%20140sc44bcf01t%0A%20%20%20%20Timestamp%3A%202019-10-23T05%3A45%3A49.779%2B0000

      Hi Jessie, try deleting from the deep link this text /{userId} or /$subjectUserId. It worked for me when I created a deep link to an MDF Screen. For example /sf/liveprofile#blockView/mdfBlock/[the MDF Screen ID]

      Hi all,

      If you need the deep link for the login user, then you need to delete from the link this text  /{userId} or  /$subjectUserId.

      For example, the guide says that the link for an MDF Screen is sf/liveprofile#blockView/$subjectUserId/mdfBlock/$MDF_Screen_ID; however, if you delete /$subjectUserId, then the the link will work for the currently login user.

      The functionality is available starting from H1 2021 Release. Details are here.

      Hope it helps.
