Where: This change applies to Lightning Experience and Salesforce Classic in Professional, Enterprise, Performance, and Unlimited editions, sandboxes only.

Click the button to see the field reference details.
The list can include these references. Click a reference label to view the settings for the layout, formula, or other reference.
- Validation rule
- Formula field
- Visualforce page
- Apex class
- Apex trigger
- Email template (Salesforce Classic, text based)
- Field set
- Flow (query)
- Lightning component markup (attr)
- Process Builder (criteria)
- URL button (formula)
- Lightning page (related list single)
- Lookup filter (lookup and master detail)
Click a reference label to go to the settings for that layout, formula, or other reference.
References within a managed package are not included in the list within the subscriber org. For example, you have a number field referenced in a formula. If you add the field to a package and install the package in a subscriber org, the subscriber org’s field reference detail page does not show that this number field is referenced in a formula field.
However, new references created after installing the managed package in the subscriber org do appear. For example, after you install the managed package and you add the number field to another formula in the subscriber org, the new reference appears.
