If you’re a Salesforce administrator or developer, you know how fast things can change. When your team is making requests, you’re working on a new feature, and all the while keeping up with your regular maintenance, dozens of system changes can happen in days or hours. And if you work with a team of other admins and devs, those updates pile up even faster. It’s important to be able to keep track of these changes, but how? Don’t worry, there’s a built-in tool just for you!
Keeping up with the theme of the last two weeks, I’d like to draw your attention to another little-known and underutilized Salesforce feature, the Setup Audit Trail. This nifty little tool keeps track of the administrative changes your team is making to the system automatically. Go to Setup -> Security Controls -> View Setup Audit Trail to see the latest 20 entries, and from here, you can even download an audit for the last six months. Leveraging this simple and powerful tool, you can keep track of the changes happening in your org every day!
