– For a developer, managing field permissions actions for single or multiple objects in Salesforce is a tedious and time taking job. User would have to open each field profiles one by one for an object using Salesforce Standard process. These type of work requests would take much more effort and time, but with our Salesforce AppExchange Bulk Object Field Creator (BOFC) App user can Update field permissions for multiple objects and for multiple profiles within same Salesforce org in few clicks.
Benefits of using BOFC Application:
