Make Custom Object available for Salesforce Report

By | July 8, 2014

While working with reports in Salesforce, we wanted to create a custom object report in salesforce. While trying to do this, we were unable to find the custom object in the Report Type Section.

The solution is that we need to select the “Allow Reports” option in the Custom Object definition for that custom object.

To do this, navigate to Setup >> Objects >> Your Object (e.g. Warehouse) >> Edit. This will open the Custom Object Definition Screen as shown below – custom object definition

Now select the “Allow Reports” checkbox under the Optional Features section and save the changes. This will cause the object to be populated under the “Other Reports” Report type section as shown in the below screenshot-Salesforce Custom Object Reports

We can now use it to generate a new report for this custom object.
