    Hi Bhupinder,

    Triggering native functionality like the camera etc. is something that we don't support as of today with custom development.

    This is something we will look at in our product roadmap for the upcoming releases.

    As Far as Remember this Functionality (Access to the Camera) is not possible to implement. I once hat to analyze how the Business Card Scanning Functionality available in C4C mobile App and I found that this button doesn't have even an EeventHandler or something like that but It still work.

    I assume this special functionality has been extra programmed in the App itself.

    but anyway you can try to check this functionality.

    Best regards

      I have enhaced the Lead object and selected COD_Leads_Owl screen ,

      but I could not find scan button over there ,

      reason could be is may not be mobile screen,

      if possible, or if you could remind of the screen you opened and how could I change desktop screen to mobile screen to see its buttons , it would be a great help in my analysis .
