Retrieve Encrypted Data with Custom Formula Fields (Beta)

Get more value out of the Shield Platform Encryption service by referencing encrypted fields in formulas. Quickly and securely filter and search for just the right data, even when it’s encrypted.

You can use several operations and functions, including concatenate (& and +), isBlank, isNull, if, hyperlink, and image. You can reference Quick Actions, and render encrypted data in text, date, and date/time formats. What’s more, your formulas can reference an unlimited number of encrypted fields, giving you even more of the data you’re looking for. To enable this feature, contact Salesforce for help.
