Report help

Hi,

 I have a custom link on a custom object.

The custom links gets a report..The report is Custom Object 'Recruiting' with 'Contact' records.
They have a lookup relationship.

I want the report filtered by a 'Contact' value.. For Example,, The user chooses 'Jeff Dove' as the contact from the lookup on the custom object , the report should only give records associated with 'Jeff Dove' and nobody else records should be displayed on the report.

How can i do this in the report and how can i get that work with the custom link on the custom object..

Appreciate your help..

Thanks for looking into this.

Hello,

You can pass parameters to a report through the URL It is also called reports URL hack.
But this technique doesn't work for Lightning anymore. Very often used but works only for Salesforce Classic.
