Copado Smart Tips - Commit Metadata Assistant

Updated 6 months ago by Copado Solutions

Copado displays smart tips on the Commit Changes page to show simple warnings and reminders. These tips can be managed by any Copado user with access to Custom Metadata Types.

You can enable/disable Copado tips yourself if you have enough permissions to edit your own user record. In order to see Copado tips, you need to go to your own user record and change the Show Copado Tips field to true. To disable Copado tips, just change the Show Copado Tips field to false.

Copy and paste the following code line into your visualforce page right after your Apex form and save i:.

<copado:CopadoSmartHelpComponent />
