Salesforce Admin newbie here.

I've picked up support of an org that I was not involved in building. There is a formula field in 3 or 4 small custom objects I need to investigate and possibly change.

I know these objects exist as they are referenced in Apex. The thing I don't understand is I can export/upsert via dataloader but I've been unable to make them visible in Salesforce to review the formula fields even with my System Administrator profile in Lightning or Classic.

Where do I go to make these objects visible?

It may be that tabs are not created for those objects. Go to Setup -> Tabs, and try to find them under custom tabs. If they do not exist just create them from the same page.

  • Thanks, however, these objects do not exist under custom objects nor do they show up in the drop-down when I try to add a new tab.

  • They may possibly be custom settings and not custom objects. Try to find them under custom settings in setup. Commented Sep 16, 2022 at 7:13
  • That was it! They live under Custom Settings. Thanks so much @stefan-stojanovic.
