Tip of the Week – Save time testing with Record and Metadata Comparator for Salesforce

Ongoing improvements and development are a crucial part of building a successful Salesforce org. Whether you’re a team of 5 or 5,000, there are always things that you can do to streamline your processes, automate your business, and give your users a more intuitive and fun experience. But when it comes time to deploy your updates from a Sandbox to Production, it can be challenging to ensure that everything made it over properly. Did you miss any important fields? Did you forget to change a data type or update picklist values? If you have hundreds of fields, it can take days to answer these questions, and can leave your users with headaches rather than enthusiasm for all your hard work. Record and Metadata Comparator for Salesforce, an all-new Chrome extension, was designed to take away those headaches and make your testing and verification a breeze!

This extension compares any two objects or its records (could be from same org or different orgs) and highlights all the differences found. It can show you the following:

  • Which fields are missing in target org.
  • Which fields are missing in source org
  • which fields have metadata difference (change in formula, datatype , required etc.)
  • which fields have data value mismatch

This new app was just released last month and is already getting stellar reviews. You should check it out today!
