How to remove ‘ on behalf of’ on email sent from salesforce

Salesforce automatically adds the " on behalf of" to the sender field on emails sent from Salesforce.
To remove the " on behalf of" we have to deselect the "Enable Sender ID compliance" permission in email delivery setting.

From Setup, enter Email Administration(Classic) || Email(Lightning Experience) in the Quick Find box, and then Deliverability
Under the Email Security Compliance section, Deselect the Enable Sender ID compliance box and then click Save.

Undelete trigger event in apex trigger in Salesforce

Before Undelete

The record is available, but the field isDeleted set to True. the before undelete trigger wouldn’t be able to see the records(values) that it needs. due to this reason, there is no before undeleting operation available.

After undelete

The after undelete trigger event only works with recovered records—that is, records that were deleted and then recovered from the Recycle Bin through the undelete DML statement. These are also called undeleted records.

If you delete an Account, an Opportunity may also be deleted. When you recover the Account from the Recycle Bin, the Opportunity is also recovered.
If there is an after undelete trigger event associated with both the Account and the Opportunity, only the Account after undelete trigger event executes.

The after undelete trigger event only fires for the following objects:

  • Account
  • Asset
  • Campaign
  • Case
  • Contact
  • ContentDocument
  • Contract
  • Custom objects
  • Event
  • Lead
  • Opportunity
  • Product
  • Solution
  • Task

Salesforce stores the recently viewed information in RecentlyViewed object
RecentlyViewed represents records that the current user has recently viewed or referenced (by viewing a related record).

If you want to query the multiple sObject records recently viewed information.
Ex: I want to see the recently viewed account and contact records in org.
Select Id, Name, Type, LastViewedDate, Profile.Name FROM RecentlyViewed WHERE Type IN ('Account', 'Contact') ORDER BY LastViewedDate DESC

You can also use the LastViewdDate field on the sObject. 
Ex: I want to see only recently viewed Account records.

How to get Record Id and Object Name into Lightning Web Component(lwc)

We used the force:hasRecordId interface to a Lightning component to enable the component to be assigned the ID of the current record. The current record ID is useful if the component is used on a Lightning record page.

We used the force:hasSObjectName interface to a Lightning component to enable the component to be assigned the API name of the current record’s sObject type. The sObject name is useful if the component can be used with records of different sObject types.

To get the record id and sObjectName in Lightning web components we can use the public decorate '@api'
@api recordId;
@api objectApiName;

        <div class="slds-text-heading_medium slds-text-align_center">
            Record Id : {currenRecordId}
        <div class="slds-text-heading_medium slds-text-align_center">
            Object Name : {currenObjectName}

Javascript Controller
import { LightningElement, api, track } from 'lwc';

export default class LWCDemo extends LightningElement {
    @api objectApiName;
    @api recordId;
    @track currenObjectName;
    @track currenRecordId;

    connectedCallback() {
        this.currenRecordId = this.recordId;
        this.currenObjectName = this.objectApiName;

Convert Attachment to File in Salesforce Using Apex

If you want to modify System audit Fields like CreatedDate, CreatedById, etc fields while converting to file. you must have the below permission "Set Audit Fields upon Record Creation" and "Update Records with Inactive Owners" 

How to Enable?

From Setup, enter User Interface in the Quick Find box, and then select "Set Audit Fields upon Record Creation" and "Update Records with Inactive Owners" 

Activating this feature in User Interface allows you to grant permission to set audit fields and update records with inactive owners, but it does not grant the permission by default.
You will need to grant the following profile permissions to your Users(Who are converting to file)

Set Audit Fields upon Record Creation - Allow the User to set audit fields (like 'Created By' or 'Last Modified By') when you create a record via API importing tools like Data Loader.
Update Records with Inactive Owners - Allow the User to update record owner and sharing-based records with inactive owners.

Add a permission set

1. Navigate to Setup.
2. Quick Find 'Permission Set'.
3. Click New.
4. Enter the name of the permission set.
5. Under System Permissions, grant any of the 2 permissions:
    i. Set Audit Fields upon Record Creation
    ii. Update Records with Inactive Owners
6. Click Save.
7. Click Manage Assignments.
8. Search for the name of the Users that will need the permission.
9. Click Add Assignment.

After you have permission now you are ready to convert the file.

Sample Code
list<ContentVersion> lstCntVersionsToInsert = new list<ContentVersion>();
list<Attachment> lstAttachments = [SELECT Id, ParentId, Name, IsPrivate, Body, OwnerId, CreatedById, CreatedDate, Description FROM Attachment where ParentId != null];
for(Attachment attIterator : lstAttachments) {
 ContentVersion objCntVersion = new ContentVersion();
 objCntVersion.Title = attIterator.Name;
 objCntVersion.PathOnClient = '/' + attIterator.Name;
 objCntVersion.VersionData = (attIterator.Body == null ? Blob.valueOf('.') : attIterator.Body);
 objCntVersion.Description = attIterator.Description;
 objCntVersion.SharingPrivacy = 'N'; // Can be always public.
 objCntVersion.FirstPublishLocationId = attIterator.ParentId; // Parent Id
 objCntVersion.OwnerId = attIterator.OwnerId;
 // To avoid "Documents in a user's private library must always be owned by that user" error.
 objCntVersion.CreatedById = attIterator.OwnerId; 
 objCntVersion.CreatedDate = attIterator.CreatedDate;
 objCntVersion.FirstPublishLocationId = attIterator.OwnerId;

if(!lstCntVersionsToInsert.isEmpty()) {
    insert lstCntVersionsToInsert;

Reusable Picklist in Salesforce using Lightning web components(lwc)

This post explains how to implement reusable picklist in the lightning web component(lwc)

To get the picklist values in lightning web components we can use 'getPicklistValues' or 'getPicklistValuesByRecordType' wire adapters, these wire adapters uses the lightning/uiObjectInfoApi scoped module to get the picklist values based on specific Field or based on Record Type.

    <lightning-combobox label={picklistlabel} 
    <div if:true={error} style="margin-left:3%">
        <b style="color: red;">{error}</b>
Javascript Controller
import {LightningElement, api, track, wire} from 'lwc';
import {getPicklistValues, getObjectInfo} from 'lightning/uiObjectInfoApi';

export default class Reusepicklistinlwc extends LightningElement {
    @api objAPIName;
    @api fieldAPIName;
    @track options = [];
    // pick list label
    @track picklistlabel;
    @track error;


    @wire(getObjectInfo, {objectApiName: '$objAPIName'})
    objectInfo(result) {
        if( {
            // Field Data
            let fieldData =[this.fieldAPIName];
            if(fieldData) {
                this.picklistlabel = fieldData.label;
                this.objfieldAPIName = {};
                this.objfieldAPIName.fieldApiName = fieldData.apiName;
                this.objfieldAPIName.objectApiName =;
                this.recordTypeId =;
            else {
                this.error = 'Please enter valid field api name';
        else if(result.error) {
            this.error = JSON.stringify(result.error);
    @wire(getPicklistValues, { recordTypeId: '$recordTypeId', fieldApiName: '$objfieldAPIName'})
    picklistValues({error, data}) {
        if (data) {

            let picklistOptions = [{ label: '--None--', value: '--None--'}];

            // Picklist values
            data.values.forEach(key => {
                    label: key.label, 
                    value: key.value

            this.options = picklistOptions;

        } else if (error) {
            this.error = JSON.stringify(error);

    handleValueChange(event) {
        this.selectedValue =;

Configuration File
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<LightningComponentBundle xmlns="" fqn="reusepicklistinlwc">

How to use the component

Add this component in your parent component and pass object API name and field API name

        <!-- Account Type picklist -->
        <c-reusepicklistinlwc field-a-p-i-name="Type" obj-a-p-i-name="Account"></c-reusepicklistinlwc>
        <!--Contact Lead source picklist-->
        <c-reusepicklistinlwc field-a-p-i-name="LeadSource" obj-a-p-i-name="Contact"></c-reusepicklistinlwc>
