The first thing we want to do is activate clean rule for the respective object. In our case, we will activate for the Account object.

Go Setup --> Data.com Administration --> Clean --> Clean Rules.

Profile mass edit

As a Salesforce Admin, We always came across a situation to edit multiple profiles to give permission to objects or system permission. Editing the profile one by one is a time-consuming work. But we can edit up to 200 profiles using enhanced profile list view without going to each profile.

You need the following permissions to do it.

  1. Manage profiles and permission set.
  2. Customize application.

Go to Setup --> User interface.
