Search for Additional Items in Setup (Beta)

Advanced Setup Search continues to expand its scope. Now you can search for even more individual items, including workflow rules and email templates, by name.
Available in: Professional, Enterprise, Performance, Unlimited, and Developer Editions



  • Advanced Setup Search is in beta. It is production quality but has known limitations.
  • After Winter ’15 is available for your organization, it might take a few weeks before your organization’s setup data is indexed and searchable. During those initial weeks, searches might not return all possible results.

Using Advanced Setup Search, you can now search for these additional items.
  • Approval post templates
  • Approval processes
  • Compact layouts
  • Custom home pages
  • Duplicate rules
  • Email templates
  • Home page components
  • Queues (with results in the Groups and Queues category)
  • Static resources
  • Workflow email alerts
  • Workflow field updates
  • Workflow outbound messages
  • Workflow rules
  • Workflow tasks

To find setup items, enter at least two consecutive characters of the item that you want in the Setup Search box, and then click Search icon or press Enter. In the Setup Search Results page that appears, select an item from the list.
