We have started the process of switching from Classic to Lightning Experience. I have come across an issue where Chatter feed on Skuid detail page is appearing in Classic and not Lightning, we are missing all new LE features. Has anyone experienced this and knows any possible solution?

Hi Andrew,

There is a known issue affecting Skuid in Lightning that currently prevents Chatter feeds from loading in a Page Include. There was another issue affecting Chatter in Skuid pages that was resolved in the most recent maintenance release, 11.1.13. If you're not updated to that version, I'd recommend testing it thoroughly in a non-critical sandbox, and moving to that version. 

As an alternative, the Chatter feed can also easily be brought into the Lightning App Builder as its own native Lightning component, running alongside your Skuid page.

Hi Andrew. Are you able to provide any screenshots, or visuals showing the unexpected behavior? One other option folks have used is to put your Skuid page next to the native Lightning Chatter component in the Lightning App Builder page rather than having Chatter inside the Skuid page. If your page isn't interacting with the Chatter component very much, I would recommend trying this out, and it also may optimize the page load times a bit.

Andrew, I should also tell you that I believe the Chatter / Page Include issue I mentioned was fixed in Skuid release 11.2.5, so any version past that should allow for Chatter feeds in Page Includes.

Hi Mark, apologies for the late reply on this, Please see the video on the link below for the unexpected behaviour.

  • Chatter Posts/Comments appears as links
  • When click to comment a user is directed to a new page instead of being able to comment on the same page
  • Not shown in the video but mentioned users appear grey

Andrew - did you ever find a solution to this?

Andrew and Kaede, I did check with our engineers about this behavior (where users are being redirected to a new page to comment on a Chatter post). They explained that the behavior is determined by the Chatter component (which is a Lightning/ Salesforce component), and we don't have any ability to reach in and change the click behavior. The fact that it's behaving differently may be because the component is making calls from inside the Skuid component or namespace, or something along those lines. So, depending on your use case, you may opt to put your Chatter feed in its own Lightning component, along side the Skuid Page Lightning component.
