Sometimes we need to know which Form, View or Chart are using a field. Similarly we may need to check which Process and Plugin message are attached to a field. All these details can be viewed easily from field’s “Show Dependencies” functionality.
Generally navigation for “Show Dependencies” will be:
(Settings > Customizations > Customize the System > Components > Entites > Entity (Select your entity) > Field (select your field) > Show Dependencies).
This window shows useful details about some other dependent components as well like Field, Entity Relationship, Email Template, Report etc. Business Rule is exception though, to see business rules we will need to click “Business Rules” button in same window.
Hope this tip will be helpful if you were not using it.
