Works great

This tool is useful for those times when you have a code string that you used that one time in a class a year ago. You can type it in and it will find the class or trigger that you used it in. ####Also with fields you can quickly see all the referenced places, validation rules, workflows, pages. ####If you have a big org you have to limit your searches you can't just search the entire database and then expect it's going to search everything within the cpu limit.

Dan, thank you for sharing your experience and review of the Metadata Search app! ####Happy to hear that the app is addressing your search needs and works great. For big orgs, the app can't search everything in one go as we too are limited by Salesforce limits. Hence, please limit your searches and do the search to avoid CPU limit error. ####Many thanks once again for a detailed review.####Chirag

Top Critical Review

Absolutely horrible when I actually need it

Nine times out of ten, when I need to search for something and I have the exact name of the object, I will receive APEX CPU time out errors over and over. I have searched the exact name of email templates only for it to say "no matches found." How that is even possible I don't know. I am almost always searching the exact name of something just to find where it is used and it frequently comes back saying there were no results found. The rest of the time I get the APEX CPU error. ####Completely useless. Please fix your product.

agree - this has become useless in my environment now. It returns no matches or times out. It worked well when I first installed.

Same here, except CPU limit is reached 10 times out of 10. Even when limiting to a single metadata type like fields or objects, CPU limit is reached 100% of the time. Completely useless.

@Adam @Gaylene @Darryl Apologies for inconvenience caused.####Probably it looks like your org is rich in terms of large number of objects, fields, workflows etc and the search is failing because of same, we might have to reduce scope of search to make it work.####Click Options, reduce search scope to get more granular results and no cpu limit error.####Let me know if this works or not. ####Also, this week are coming with new release with features to safely handle CPU error and report same.

Must Have!

When it comes to finding metadata references in Salesforce, you must have Metadata Search. I have used this tool before the paid version and have taken it with me on every job opportunity; I now have the paid version.####Neville O'Meally##Architect/Senior Salesforce Developer##USAuto Sales

Neville, thank you for sharing your experience and review of the Metadata Search app! ####Happy to hear that the app is so helpful in finding metadata references in Salesforce and is a must have for you like many others. ####Many thanks once again for a detailed review.####Thanks,##Chirag

Great product!

I absolutely love this product! It works really well and is very easy to use. I just made a small adjustment by increasing the Query Limit for Body Elements and it finds everything perfectly. Before this, I was trying to use Eclipse and that wasn't nearly as good as this product. I highly recommend!

Dave, thank you for sharing your experience and review of the Metadata Search app! ####Happy to hear that the app works really well and easy to use. Also, thanks for sharing (with community) the tip about increasing Body Elements. As always, this is handy and force.com solution which searches and shows results right in org unlike eclipse.####Many thanks once again for a detailed review.####Thanks,##Chirag

One of the best tools on the AppExchange

I use this tool daily. Especially since there are no tools that allow you to extract the metadata structure from SFDC in a diagram format. (hint hint) . Very much worth the cost.

Great product

Metadata Search is a great product and easy to use. Metadata search allows me to quickly find the field dependencies and has really helped us in our company. The Customer service has been awesome to work with as we have run into issues.

Fills a gap, meets a need...

Third org, third time installing, third five star review...####If you are NOT a solo admin/developer with a photographic memory, you WILL forget or lose track of what has been built in your org and you WILL eventually step on the toes of your own build. This tool will help you avoid doing that... or at least help you identify the toe you stepped on for quicker resolution. :)

Roy, thank you for sharing your experience (for the 3rd time) and review of Metadata Search app. Happy to hear that you are loving this app. ####Thanks for another set of 5 stars :)

Works as advertised.

I have this in three orgs, so that earns it three reviews. Running this tool is the first thing I do when considering a change to... just about anything. Even renaming a field can have serious ramifications if you don't know where it's being referenced, so a tool like this is a must.

Roy, thank you for sharing your experience (again) and review of Metadata Search app! ####Happy to hear that you are loving this app (again). Thanks for 5 stars :)

Good tool and good customer service...

The product works as advertised. Is is especially valuable if you have a mature and complicated org. It's a great tool to see where metadata is referenced and will help you make changes with confidence that you won't unintentionally break stuff.####Something I was not expecting (or even thinking about it) when downloading the tool, was the customer service. I had an issue and Satrang's rep (Chirag) worked hard with me to get us satisfied and squared away. It's a 5 star product and 5 star support.

Thanks, Chirag. To clarify, MetadataSearch has been an extremely helpful tool for us and our frustration was mostly about not being notified as a user that it would be turned off. I'd recommend the product for anyone that has a large number of configurations like we do. I'd also recommend that you notify users of an end of service in the future, even if they have unsubscribed from marketing emails. ;-)

@Roy: Many thanks for updating the review after our detailed discussion and addressing all your concerns. Once again thank you for sharing your experience and review of the Metadata Search app!

Excellent App..very useful for lightning migration

We are migrating our org from classic to lightning where we need to convert many buttons and links many of which are difficult to search as they are specific to page layouts. This app made our job job simple and we could easily search the metadata to work in conjunction with Lightning readiness report. Thanks team Satrang for an awesome app.
