How to auto populate contact's title on contract page when contact name is chose from a lookup field?


I created a contact name lookup field on the contract object page.  I know would like to auto populate the contact's title, phone, email into the open custom fields I've created once the name is chose from the lookup field.  Would this be a workflow rule?  Thanks in advance :)

You can't make the fields "auto populate" on the page layout (before clicking save), without some crazy javascript hack.  Otherwise, you're looking at either changing the custom fields to a formula field or using a process or trigger to populate it automatically when you save the contract.

HI James,

Can I have it auto populate after I hit save?

Thank you :)

First, how many possible values does the lookup field have?
Second, What are the field type of the other fields?

Let's see what we can do once you provied this info!
