Determine where a field is used

    Is there a way for me to find out what sections or forms on the layouts tab a particular field is located on?
    I don't want to have to search every form for our risk assessment field but I would like to know what forms are using it.

    Hi Tim,

    This is a good idea which if you want to add to our request to enhancement portal, the link is found here:

    One solution other than reviewing all the layout tabs can be to use the org export capability. I think its tedious but just so you have options. The steps are:

    1. Navigate to Administrator Settings -> Organization
    2. Export the organization data, including layout information
    3. Unzip the .resz file and view the json file using a json viewer tool such as 
    4. Among all the json sections is 'layouts'. If you search for your custom field, it will show you which tab layouts reference it.

    Good luck.
