I don't have any more Tabs available. How do I view an Object's List Views even though I don't have a Tab for the Custom Object?
To access a Custom Object's List Views without having a Tab for the Custom Object, you need the Custom Object's Key Prefix. If you have the Key Prefix, you can use the following link:
How to get a Custom Object's Key Prefix:
If you can navigate to a record for the Custom Object, say through a Related List, take the first 3 characters of the record's Id -- that's the Key Prefix for the Custom Object.
Example: Record Id =
a0g1a000001Eyg1 implies the Record's Object's Key Prefix =
Another way is to get the Custom Object's Key Prefix via Apex.
Example: Use the following in Execute Anonymous:
System.debug('keyPrefix: ' + My_Object__c.SObjectType.getDescribe().getKeyPrefix());
Please up-vote my Idea to add the Key Prefix to Custom Object's Detail Page for quick reference. https://success.salesforce.com/ideaView?id=08730000000DxNVAA0
I wrote a visualforce page to display the id and name of the objects then got the 3 digit prefix from the id field. then just like mentioned above you can take the salesforce url and add the 3 digit prefix to the end. You can also cheat your way to a few other shortcuts with the 3 digit prefix.
will take you straight to creating new for the object
After this you can create shortcut links to get there quicker. Once I know what the prefix is I like to add the 3 digit prefix to the description field of my custom objects so I can find it easier later
