Businesses need to grow, consistently. And unless we do something new or change something old, we don’t see results.
With some customizations, your propellant for growth – Salesforce – is usually able to keep up with your ever growing demands. But these customizations may get a bit tricky sometimes.

Often there’s just a simple, fast & easy way to do something new in Salesforce – Installing a FREE app from Salesforce AppExchange!
Let’s find out the top 10 free apps on Salesforce AppExchange to help your business grow.

1. Ringlead Field Trip

Ringlead_Field_Trip


For any business owner, sales manager or Salesforce Administrator who has been using Salesforce for a while, Filed Trip is an ace product that helps keeping your org neat and clean.

With time and non-clinical usage, multiple objects in your Salesforce org are bound to accumulate unused custom fields that are redundant. These unused custom fields not only take a toll on performance, but also create unnecessary confusion and significantly detract user experience by cluttering page layouts. Field Trip helps you discover unused fields and discover data quality.

4. Duplicate Check for Salesforce: Duplicate Management made easy

Find_duplicates


What’s the similarity between a Salesforce Administrator and a Sales Rep? They’re both equally frustrated with duplicate records in the CRM tool.

Duplicate check for Salesforce not only helps you find and merge duplicate records that are already existing in your database, but also automatically checks & prevents duplicates every time a new record is created via manual entry, automatic record creation (like web-to-lead) or import.

10. ClickDeploy.io - Release management | Deploy 10x faster than change sets

ClickDeploy_io


Many of us who use sandboxes for development and testing use change-sets to deploy the final changes to the production org. But we know this is manual step is prone to mistakes & misses. There are many times when we’re not sure about the components that we want to include in a change-set, and more often than not, it takes more than one attempt to successfully deploy all the changes to production. ClickDeploy.io is one of my favourite apps which helps me compare metadata in two orgs and helps me deploy changes with a single click.
