Wow, I just noticed the new System Log window in Salesforce.com:
The first big improvement is the provision of a Log History. When executing code in the top half, the log file appears in the bottom half. This also works when data is updated through other means, such as editing a record. Previous logs can be viewed by clicking. (I did, however, notice that it was a little slow when the log was large.)
Another little improvement is the way the “Execute” button changes to “Executing…” when clicked. I have always been confused over this, because the window appears to ‘hang’ when executing time-intensive code (eg looping over many records) and I could never tell if the command was correctly transmitted.
Thank you, Salesforce development team!
The Bottom Line
- The System Log window has been updated
- Multiple log histories are available
