How can I find the created data on number of fields within an Object without drilling down manually into each field.

I know that one-off drilling into each field in a given object will enable me to see the created date of a field, however, I was hoping there would be a simpler way to identify for an object the date the fields associated with the object were created.  When you have 500+ field across a number of objects that would be a time consuming process.  Thanks so much.

Hi Karen, this is a good question.

I think we can use the workbench to see the created dates of each field. but again you have to click each field but without any drill-downs

login to workbench > info menu item > metadata types and components > custom fields > verify the fields in your object 

others can add here if there is any easy way to access these details.

Hi Karen,

Greetings to you!

You can use Tooling API to fetch the created date of a field. Open Developer Console and go to Query Editor. Use the following query:
SELECT NameSpacePrefix, DeveloperName, TableEnumOrId, CreatedDate, LastModifiedDate FROM CustomField WHERE TableEnumOrId = 'Account'

Make sure to enable the "Use Tooling API" checkbox.

Also, you can use the chrome extension to export data after using Tooling API query:

Salesforce inspector:

Check out Config Workbook on the AppExchange:

I hope it helps you.

Kindly let me know if it helps you and close your query by marking it as solved so that it can help others in the future. It will help to keep this community clean.

Thanks and Regards,
