A warm welcome to the Salesforce Schema course by Uplatz.

Salesforce Schema is a pictorial representation of all objects, fields and their relationships in Salesforce. It provides a dynamic environment to view and modify all the objects and their relationships.

Salesforce Schema Builder provides a dynamic surrounding to feature new custom objects, custom fields, and relationships to your schema. This eliminates the requirement to click from page to page to seek out the details of a master-detail relationship or to feature a brand new custom field to an object in your schema. For instance, if you’re using Schema Builder to look at the details of your schema, you’ll add a brand new custom object while not leaving Schema Builder in Salesforce. The drag-and-drop interface helps you to simply add a custom object or new field and saves the layout of your schema any time you move an object in Salesforce.

The various objects and their relationships of a Salesforce application can be easily viewed using the Schema builder. And just not viewing, but we can also design, modify and implement new data models using schema builder. Schema builder has a drag and drop interface which is used to perform all the activities. It shows all the relevant details like - field values, data types, relationship with directions etc.

In essence, Schema Builder is a tool that lets you visualize and edit your data model. It’s useful for designing and understanding complex data models. Schema Builder in Salesforce provides details like the field values, needed fields, and how objects are connected by displaying search and master-detail relationships. You’ll view the details for both standard and custom objects in Schema Builder.

The Object Manager is a streamlined tool that lets admins access object management settings for both standard and custom objects. Object management settings include customization like fields, page layouts, and compact layouts. The Object Manager is available only in Lightning Experience. The Object Manager is the place to go to manage your standard and custom object such as custom fields, page layouts, and validation rules. If an object is included in a managed package or is for Salesforce systems, you may not be able to access those. Standard objects such as Account or Contact come with all Salesforce organizations. A custom object is something you have created or added to manage additional items.

Uplatz provides this Salesforce Schema training to help you get familiar with Salesforce schema, understand the database relationships between sObjects, define objects, custom fields, custom objects and their relationships, creating schema from Object Manager and with Schema Builder.
