You can use the Optimize / Clean-up tab in your Salesforce Org Model to identify and mark metadata that needs to be deleted, optimized, documented or investigated. It is a quick and easy tool to aid you in your clean-up efforts.


How to use the Optimize / Clean-up tab

The Optimize / Clean-up tab is present in the right panel for all synced Salesforce metadata in your Org model. It is available under the broom icon.

Users with edit rights on the org model can change the status, change the node assignee, and leave a comment on why they chose a particular action.

TIP Assignees will not receive a notification upon being selected for particular metadata.

Optimize workflow

You can choose any Optimize / Clean-up status at any point. There is no fixed workflow restricting you. However, in order to make sense of the provided statuses, we recommend you follow the approach outlined below:

The Optimize / Clean-up tab is meant to help you manage your org clean-up quickly and effortlessly. However, to plan and document specific actions, we recommend you raise business requirements and user stories to document how the metadata should be optimized.

Bulk / mass-actions / reporting on metadata

The status and assignee fields are available in custom views of metadata. For any selected metadata type, you can choose to include those fields in the custom view. That allows you to both report at-scale on documented actions and perform bulk actions.

You can also generate a report on all metadata with their optimize/clean-up status. However, this will only produce a read-only report without ability for mass-actions.

Optimize history

All optimize actions (status changes, assignee changes, comments) are stored in the history stream, so you can quickly understand the previous actions on the metadata.
