Manage Standard and Custom Objects from One Location

We’ve added an Object Manager to improve your Setup experience! The Object Manager is a one-stop shop for managing all objects in your organization. Now you can access all objects and their related functions—fields, validation rules, page layouts, and so on—from a single entry point. This feature is available only in Lightning Experience.
Available in: Group, Professional, Enterprise, Performance, Unlimited, and Developer Editions

Previously you accessed management settings one way for standard objects and another way for custom objects. With Lightning Experience, everything’s in one place!

To access the Object Manager, from Setup, enter Object Manager in the Quick Find box, then select Object Manager.

  • To find an object, enter the first few characters of its label or name in the Find in page box.
  • To edit a custom object, in the Actions column, select ... | Edit.
  • To view more details about an object, or to access its related functions, click the object label.

From the object detail page, you can view the object details and access all related functions, such as fields, validation rules, and page layouts.
  • To jump to a function or control, use the links at the top of the page.
  • To find a function or control by name, enter it in the Find in page box.
  • If an ellipsis (...) appears in the Actions column for an item, click it to perform an action on that item, such as edit or delete.
