Quickly add fields to Existing Object without using standard wizard

By | August 26, 2014

Salesforce has a basic wizard to add fields in an object but it is a time consuming process when we are planning to add multiple fields per object (e.g. more than 15 fields).There is another process called as “Schema Builder”. By using the Schema Builder, user can easily add fields in a short span of time.

To add fields to an object from the schema builder follow the below steps –

  • Step 1: Navigate to Setup -> Deploy (Under App setup). Click on Schema Builder.
  • Step 2: The Schema Builder will load as shown belowSchemaBuilder1
  • Step 3: In the left hand side there are two tabs “Elements” and “Objects”. We can find object by using search box and select it. (For E.g. Account)SchemaBuilder2
  • Step 4: Then click on Elements tab in the left pane which contains all the field type list.SchemaBuilder3
  • Step 5: You can just drag and drop the field in the schema section in right hand side pane. Suppose, we are going to add text field then just drag “Text” element into the Account dialog box.
  • Step 6: Once the element is dragged and dropped then a new popup window will appear as shown below –SchemaBuilder4
  • Step 7: Fill the object information into the popup window and hit save. The field will get added to this object.
  • Step 8: Repeat steps 5 to 7 in order to add multiple fields.

In this way, the Salesforce schema builder allows the user to create multiple fields for an object quickly.
