How to add several entries at once using a related list?


How can I add several entries at once in a related list?

Say, I have a custom object gifts where I want to save which (christmas) gifts a certain account likes.

Now I have created a junction table to resolve many-to-many relations. And I see this gift_for_account junction table as related list in both gifts and account.

When I want to add new gifts to one account, I have to click New gift_for_account one by one to add those items.

What would be the smoothest way to do this? Do I have to dig deep into or are there other ways to get this done? Does anyone have a link for a tutorial?

Possible Suggestion/Solution #1

You would need to write a Custom Visualforce Page and then either override the New Button or remove the new Button from the related list and add your custom New Button, which directs the creation to your Custom VF page, where you've written logic to be able to create multiple relationship records.

Salesforce only supports creation of multiple junction objects in case of OpportunityContactRole or AccountContactRole, i.e. junction objects which come out of the box. If you've added Contact Roles, you'll set what I mean.
