Track Your Discoveries

As you continue on your journey, you’re going to find other resources you want to track, like blogs, websites, podcasts, events, and more. So let’s build an app on the Salesforce Platform to track all of those resources.

Build a Custom Object

  • Click Setup and select Setup.

  • Click Create and select Custom Object.
  • Create an object as follows:
    • Label: Discovery
    • Plural Label: Discoveries
    • Object Name: Discovery
    • Record Name: Discovery Name
    • Under Optional Features, select Allow Reports.
    • Under Object Creation Options (available only when a custom object is first created), select Launch New Custom Tab Wizard after saving this custom object.
  • Click Save.
