Can a delegated admin create new fields, i know they cannot create new profiles, roles or modify the OWD.but someone please confirm if the delegated admin can create a new field?

No, they can't.

To create fields they need Customize Application privilege on their profile. But if you add that permission they will be able to the entire setup options.

  • I think if the delegate admin is having access to that object, then he/she can create fields as well even if he/she is not having Customize Application privilege on their profile Jan 18, 2017 at 4:27
