Parameter from OWL to QuickCreate in C4C

I have created multiple OWLs for the Opportunities.
They are all containing a "New" button calling the same QuickCreate view.
Is it possible to prefill a field in QuickCreate to tell from which OWL I created the Opportunity?

Hi Peter,

you could create a codelist which you implement to your QC and preselect the corresponding data via an portbinding from the owl's to the qc. Otherwise you could just do that with a simple string and textfield. For this you must have access to edit the EventHandler which lays behind the "New" button on the owl's but I think you created these OWL's so you should be fine.

If you are not sure how to achieve this, simply google and try and error round about In- and Outports with the screens you need.

Kind Regards,

Hello Johannes,

Thanks for your help.

What exactly do you mean by portbinding or EventHandler?
My problem is I am not able to create an inport for the QuickView in the Extensibility Explorer.
I also was not able to set a global variable in the Before QuickCreate Navigation EventHandler.
Do you know how I could prefill the QuickCreate depending on the OWL I come from?

Best Regards,


Hello Peter,

i was expecting you to work in completly custom screens you created on your own.
But as it seems you are working with standard screen. I can't help you out there.

Kind Regards,
