- Most standard tabs and objects can be renamed but not all. For example, the Forecasts tab is not available for renaming. From Setup, enter Rename Tabs and Labels in the Quick Find box, then select Rename Tabs and Labels to view a list of the tabs and objects you can rename.
- The renamed labels appear on all user pages in Salesforce including Personal Setup. However, all pages in the Setup area use the default, original labels.
- After renaming tabs, objects, or fields, check the following additional items that may need manual updates:
- Review all list view names. List view names continue to display the original object name until you change them manually.
- Check standard report names and descriptions for the objects you renamed.
- Update the titles and descriptions of any email templates that contain the original object or field name.
- Manually change any other items you customized with the new object or field name. For example, custom fields, page layouts, and record types may contain the original tab or field name.
- Connect Offline, Lightning for Outlook, and Salesforce for Outlook use your new names.
- If you have renamed tabs, objects, or fields, you can also replace the Salesforce Help with another URL. Users can view this URL whenever they click on any context-sensitive help link on an end-user page or within their personal settings. After you replace the help, the Help & Training link at the very top of every page and all Setup pages will continue to display the Salesforce Help. For instructions on replacing the online help, see Replace Built-in Salesforce Help with Custom Help.
- In Hebrew, we recommend keeping tab renaming to a minimum because variable gender in verbs is not supported and verbs can lose gender agreement.
