Add Campaing to Lead upon create

I am new to Apex. I need to write a code where when a new lead is created, if the lead source = Chat, i want to add a campaing called "chat" to this lead record. Can someone please help me with this code. thanks.

Hi Sangeeta,

I think you can create a workflow to the lead object and assign the campaign "Chat" (<= should be created at first as campaign) by field update.

Robert the challenge is that Campaign is not a field that can be updated. It is a related list. I dont see how I can assign the chat campaign to the lead via workflow.

Hi Sangeeta,

you are right. There seems to be an interesting logical idea:

Perphaps, you can check the campaign field during lead creation by using a validation rule!?
