Web Based Tools
The one and only tool that everyone should know. If you don't know it, start learning it. It is just the baseline of everything.
Is actually 8 tools - Best practices analyzer, Org Compare tool, Data Compare tool, Schema Lister, Field Creator and validation/trigger switcher
Profile Power Tools - Mass edit profiles
Literally does what it tells you. Allows you to mass edit profiles.
Google for salesforce - Search the web and only get Salesforce related results
Avoids you having to applya gazillion filters when doing your Google searches.
Json 2 apex - Create Apex based on your jason
Cert Score Calculator
Event Log Viewer
If you use Lucidchart to genarate your Entity Diagrams you should switch over to this. When you're done with LucidChart, what you have is an image.That work is lost. If you use DbDiagram or equivalent, you just write JSON, which you then can reuse to actually create your fields etc.
Doing SOQL queries that can be comre complex than reports, but without the hassle, since... a few years now ? no idea.
Browser Add Ons
Admin Check All
This extension provides 'check all' checkboxes on admin pages.
Salesforce Admin Check All is an extension that enhances the Salesforce Setup pages by adding "check all" checkboxes to various checkbox lists. This enhanced functionality helps make some setup tasks more efficient by potentially saving administrators from having to manually check each checkbox in a list individually.
Org Installable Apps
With Rollup Helper, you can roll-up any Salesforce® data: Count, sum, max, min, average, percent, lookups, text, formula, and multi-currency roll-ups.
Mass Action Scheduler
Create scheduled actions, declaratively and without code.
Declarative Lookup Rollup Summaries (DLRS)
Rollup information between Lookup relationships not previously possible without writing Apex Triggers
Enhanced Related List
Configure the Filter, Sort, and Fields on this reusable component on any lookup records to group relevant records in a single page (eg: Open and Closed Cases).
Copy data from your Production or Full Sandbox environment to Developer/Dev Pro sandboxes. Simply select the data you want to copy, and the app will take care of the rest. No more spreadsheets/scripts/external Ids/ figuring out sequences required.
Talend Open Studio
Need to move data into/out of Salesforce? Gotta integrate with disparate systems? Have literally no money? Talend is worth knowing about.
SOQL Explorer (OSX only)
Package generator for XML for VSCode
Windyo's Chrome Extension List for Admins & Consultants
Better Salesforce formula editor
Adds another tab in the standard Formula places where you have better inlline editing and highlighting etc
This extension now requires payment, and honestly isn't super stable always.
We recommend using https://formulon.io to test your Salesforce formulas.
Boostr for Salesforce
Does a few things like add a change set assistant (deactivate that function, change set helper is better), give Field Set API names, allow better search in setup, automatically removes underscores from API names when you type,gives you a Check All options on different parts of the setup, and changes page layout checkboxes so they're all unchecked by default
DARK THEME FOR EVERYTHIN
Forces secure connections. Not really Salesforce related but you should install it
LastPass: Free Password Manager
Avoids you using ILOVEBREAD123 as your password for all Salesforce orgs
Allows you to open mulitple tabs by click-dragging accross links. Super useful for things likefield deletions, picklist value deletions, etc.
I think It's pretty
Reddit Enhancement Suite
For when you browse /r/Salesforce
Salesforce Admin Check All
Somewhat redundant with Boostr for Salesforce,BUT does it in some places where Boostr doesn't.
Salesforce API Fieldnames
Broken with Lightning. Used to give you API fieldnames on the page layout. still works in classic.
Salesforce Change Set Helper
a set of tools to migrate changesets better. Includes search box for components, comparision with prod/other sandbox, test deploys via API, fitlersfor components....
Salesforce Colored Favicons
Don't confuse your orgs
Salesforce Enhanced Code Searcher
allows finding that one apex class wher eyou referenced that thing fast. is in setup.
Probably the best extesnion. View all data on a recor,d show field details, export and import data.... ti's a swiss army knife that you need.
Salesforce Lightning Inspector
Helps you develop lightning compoennts. Nothing to do with the above extension.
Broken in Lightning. Allows going to setup parts using the keyboard ctrl shift space and then typing where you want to go.
Salesforce Navigator for Lightning
like above but in lightning. Same maintainer.
Salesforce Schema Builder Expander
bigger schema builder
Salesforce User Search
searches for users, seriosuly it's in the name
Salesforce.com Enhanced Formula Editor
broken in lightning. modifies the standard formula editor to be better.
Salesforce.com Quick Login As
Salesforce.com Sandbox Favicon Extension
like coloured favicons but for sandbox
Search and Replace
searcha nd replace text in HTML pages, not just salesforce. useful for field renaming and stuff.
store your sessions! easy workspaces etc.
the best image capture (jog, animated gif, whatever) software for Windows.
no more ads. ever.
