It is possible to create a custom tab after creating a custom object.
Creating tabs will allow:
- To give users quick access to manage records,
- To have an object home page on which the icon and the color of the tab are displayed,
- To create printable list views,
- To Search for records via global search,
- To create new records via the “Create New” option available in the sidebar
Attention: you can create up to 25 Custom tabs in the Enterprise Edition, against 200 custom objects. It is therefore necessary to choose well the objects that will have a tab.
