Standard Tab Overrides

Sometimes back we blog about how to modify default View in Object Tab using visualforce page. There is another option to use a free app available from AppExchange called Standard Tab Overrides.

Because this app will override default Recent tab with a list view, we can configure to hide New button when user click object tab.

If you are not aware, there is a list view called Recently Viewed Object, so if your users prefer to get recent records they work with as in default tab, you can set the Id to Recently Viewed Object Id.

Limitation, this app only work with 7 standards object as below, so if you would to use for custom object tab, this is not the option:
✔ Leads
✔ Accounts
✔ Contacts
✔ Opportunities
✔ Cases
✔ Campaigns
✔ Contracts

In summary:
  • Override (7) standard object tabs with a default list view home page
  • Remove the "New" button from each tab and increase data accuracy
  • Set default tab list views for specific profiles or individual users

Here is the configuration guide Welcome to Standard Tab Overrides

  1. This app is inactive on the AppExchange now. Additionally, it appears to be causing issues in Lighting. Any tab/object that's been configured to use Standard Tab Override (the app) is caught in a loop. The work around that I've come up with so far is to remove the old app.
