How to remove multiple custom fields from multiple List Views in few clicks?

Remove Multiple Fields in Salesforce ListView

Let’s ask few questions to ourselves about Salesforce Standard List Views:

  1. Can we add multiple custom fields as “Columns” in multiple List Views in single click?
  2. Can we update fields of multiple list views at the same time?
  3. Can we remove multiple fields from multiple list views in single click?

Answer is BIG NO. Salesforce standard list view doesn’t provide these bulk features. In case, if an admin has to perform these actions, then admin would have to open each and every List View one by one and perform the required action.

These type of work requests would take much more effort and time, but with our Salesforce AppExchange application Bulk Object Field Creator (BOFC), admin can update multiple List Views in few clicks.
