Field Tracking in Salesforce® has been one of the most extensively used features on Salesforce®. And what gets used the most, ends up getting most scrutinized for its features, abilities, efficiency, and performance. Isn’t that how life works?

The built-in features available on Salesforce originally address some of the issues. However, Algoworks’ working with Salesforce® developers has helped us understand the different expectations the developers require when it comes to field tracking on Salesforce®. With all the critical feedback collected over the years, we tried our best to identify what may be termed as ‘gaps’, ‘loopholes’, or simply ‘desired wishlist features’ by the Salesforce® developers’ community.

Algoworks Field Tracker App was listed on AppExchange on January 1, 2021 and its latest update was released on June 6, 2021. It is a 100% Salesforce Native Application built by Algoworks for Salesforce® users who wish to track changes in fields with ease and economize by managing their work more efficiently. The app is already well received by consumers and business owners who are now able to track the history of quote line items and user objects. Algoworks intends to bridge the gap between SMB and what developers intend to build for them with this app.

Here’s what Salesforce Consultant Ike Wagh has to say about the Field Tracker, watch the video to know more about the app and its feature offerings.

Field Tracker App Features

1.Track Field Object Changes

As an admin, you can track all of the standard objects as well except for ‘Event’, ‘Activity’, ‘Task‘, and ‘Quote‘. Added to this is the ease of activation and deactivation of field tracking for objects through the configuration page. The app also allows you to track each and every object of the field though the Formula field is not available for tracking yet (due for an upcoming release).

2. Allows Unlimited Data Stacking

Now this one is interesting. This app has an advantage over any other app as you can update the fields with data infinitely. Field history is now available beyond 18 months and infinitely. You can always go back to review and update data – no more panicking over the data that ‘might’ have been lost!

  • Opportunity Field History’ for changes made to the Amount, Probability, Stage, or Close Date Fields.
  • Expected Revenue on Opportunity’ to calculate revenue based on amount and probability fields.
  • Roll-Up Summary’ to know about all the pending opportunities.
