[AppExchange – 123FormBuilder] Form Migration Between Salesforce Orgs

Different business scenarios may require you a form migration between Salesforce orgs. For example, after you are done setting everything up in your Sandbox org, you need to turn to your Production environment. Or if you are a consultant and are preparing the Salesforce implementation for a customer, you need to publish the setup live at the end. Irrespective of the situation, 123FormBuilder provides an easy-to-use migration mechanism that allows you to quickly transfer forms between different Salesforce orgs.

When you migrate a form between Salesforce orgs, the two orgs should have a similar structure. The object and fields mapped in the 123FormBuilder – Salesforce integration should be identical.

After migration, you will need to check the integration settings and re-enable your connectors. This is in order to minimize the chances of something not working correctly.
