Useful Google Chrome Extensions for Salesforce Developers & Admins

Sharing is Caring

Chrome extensions help Salesforce Developers and Salesforce Admins work a lot more efficiently in Salesforce. If you’re using Google Chrome and Using Salesforce, you really need to check out some of these Chrome Extensions. All of the extensions I’ve listed below are available for free and don’t require any special apps from the AppExchange.

Salesforce Inspector

Salesforce Inspectors advertises itself as “Productivity tools for Salesforce administrators and developers to inspect data and metadata directly from the Salesforce UI” and it sure is. I have used this Chrome Extension so many times for confirming whether fields have help text, field labels and see how things are connected.

Install it from here.

Salesforce Navigator

Salesforce Navigator is a super handy little extension that allows developers and admins to search for just about anything in the metadata without having to do lots of clicking.

Salesforce API FieldNames

This extension replaces all of the field labels with the API Names on page layouts. I find this is really useful for figuring out what employees are meaning when debugging triggers or fields being changed.

Install it from here.

Sandbox Favicon

Sandbox Favicon replaces the favicon with an S which helps remind developers and Salesforce Admins that they’re currently in a sandbox instead of production. I don’t know how many times I’ve went to do something and realized it was production or a sandbox. Over time, this extension has really helped.

Salesforce Lightning Inspector

As everything related to Salesforce is slowly starting to switch to Salesforce Lightning, it makes sense to include the Google Chrome DevTools Extension that Salesforce has put together. The extension helps with understanding how events are being fired, and handled along with allow Lightning Components to be inspected.

Install it from here. Utility Belt

I mainly use this Chrome Extension for the Documentation references, and for the converting from 15 digit Ids to 18 Digit Ids. Jeff Douglas wrote this extension a long time ago, so it’s usefulness has worn out over time.

I hope this list of Chrome Extensions helps you to be more efficient. Are there some extensions that you feel I’ve missed?
