I moved a bunch of objects (and their dependencies) from one sandbox to another using the Inbound/Outbound Sets feature - it went well.

However, I don't see any of those objects in the All Tabs screen. I'd like to add one of those imported objects to the list of tabs.

Am I missing some intermediary step?

You need to create a tab for custom objects.


If you have the tabs already created in your other sandbox you could also move those over using an outbound Change Set or the Migration Tool.

  1. Create a new OutBound Change Set
  2. Under "Change Set Components" click "Add"
  3. Select the tabs dropdown and select the appropriate tabs.
  4. Deploy the changeset

Did you include the custom object tab in the change set? If not, you'd need to create tab by going to Setup > Create > Tabs.
