Is there a built-in component attribute in any of the namespaces, (ie., lightning:, ui:, or force:, that has a search or lookup functionality to the Contact object record. The field I am working is in a lightning component, within a "form" component attribute.  

Here is a snapshot of the form component in top-level component.

This is a snapshot the custom field 'data type'

The app works except when I enter data into the 'Client' field it will not save and create record.

Hey all!
My first post so go easy!

I have an object, Project, which contains details of all project members. One of my projects is actaully my list of Project Managers.
When creating a New project I need to search and assign a PM from my "Project Managers" project.  I can set up a field Lookup but that is only to the object and not a specific record. Is there an easy way of achiveing this?

I do hope that makes sense!?
Hi,
I'm kinda new to salesforce administration.

I have found the way to set up the "home" page in Salesforce by clicking on "edit page".
My problem is I can customize the page only with certains items (in my case : "asistant", Chatter feed" (...) Report Chart", "today's tasks" for instense).

I need to setup a home page for my salesteams with several Reports. I just can't find the way to duplicate the "repoart chart" item and select different Charts.

I must be missing something here...
Hoping someone can advice,

thanx,
Denis

I want to get all contact filed label and API names using rest call. But I didn't find any endpoint for this.

Please tell me how to get it?
