Chatter Feed Tracking for Notes & Attachments

 

Hi,

 

Why does not chatter notify us when we make changes into note section or add any notes and attachment to custom object.

 

Bur when we attach file through chatter, chatter enables feed tracking for those files.

 

But it does not keep tracking for notes and attachment section for custom objects?? Is there any workaround to feed for notes and attachments?

 

Thanks and Regards,

Devendra S

Hi Devendra,

If you take look at the screen from where chatter is enabled you will notice that is contains list of all standard and custom objects, but there is no mention of notes and attachments.

Also since users are tracked and uploading a file is an action by the user hence its tracked. 

 

Hope this answers your query..

Hi Ispita,

 

Yes, there is no option for including Notes and Attachment while we enable chatter for difference object.

 

I was looking to display chatter feed when user adds new note/attachment for record.  But i guess, there is no option available for this. It would be greate if SF enables this feature.

 

What is your take on this?

 

Thanks and Regards,

Hi Ispita,

 

SF does not provide the feature of chatter feeding for Notes and Attachments.

 

Is there any workaround for this. So that we can display notes and attachments into Chatter feeding?

 

Thanks,

Hi Devendra, This can be done using chatter triggers. Thanks, Devika

Hi Devendra,

 

Following code is for notes insert/delete.

 

trigger notesTrigger on Note ( after insert, after update, after delete) {
if(trigger.isinsert)
{
for(Note a:trigger.new){
//system.debug(a);
feedPost f= new feedPost();
f.ParentId=a.ParentId;
f.Title=a.title;
f.body=a.body;
f.body=((Trigger.isInsert) ? 'New' : 'Updated') +'Note'+ ' '+ a.title +' ' +'is added ';
insert f;
//system.debug('f.id--->'+f.id);
}
}
if(trigger.isdelete)
{
for(Note a:trigger.old){
//system.debug(a);
feedPost f= new feedPost();
f.ParentId=a.ParentId;
f.Title=a.title;
f.body=a.body;
f.body=((Trigger.isDelete) ? 'Note' : 'Deleted') + ' '+ a.title +' ' +'is deleted ';
insert f;
//system.debug('f.id--->'+f.id);
}

}
}

 

Just a few changes for attachments.Hope it helps.

FeedPost has been renamed to FeedItem but I'm getting an error on the code above even after changing the names out. Would anyone post a new solution please? 

Error: Compile Error: Incorrect SObject type: Note should be FeedItem at line 1 column 1
