As the name suggests, Lookup Filter enhances the overall productivity and data quality for users. It is a part of administrator settings that tracks and restricts predefined values along with lookup dialogue results. It helps in configuring specific criteria for comparing with different values. Hence, you can easily choose which records will be put together with the relationship object. Lookup Filters are available for,

  • Master-Detail Relationship Fields
  • Lookup Relationship Fields
  • Hierarchical Relationship Fields

What do you mean by Schema Builder in Salesforce?


Moving ahead, Schema Builder in Salesforce is a specialized tool that enables you to edit or visualize different data models. In other words, you can create a data model using the ‘drag and drop’ feature on the existing objects. This means you don’t need to explicitly redo every object while finalizing the schema of your project. Also, it saves time rather than individually visiting every page to find the relevant records and objects. Many Salesforce experts believe it to be a game-changer while making the data model.

Moreover, users work in a dynamic ecosystem to edit different objects of an application. There is no doubt in the fact that Schema Builder helps in designing and implementing various tasks related to the data model. You even get information about field values and how objects are connected through lookup or master-detail relationships.

As per the default configurations, Schema Builder in Salesforce is already active, and admins can integrate the following items into it,

  • Master-Detail Relationships
  • Lookup Relationships
  • Custom Objects
  • Custom Fields (Except Geolocation)
