Using Standard Object in Managed Package

 

Hi,

 

I have created one app and it consist of standard objects (For e.g. Campaign, Account, Contact.) and some custom objects.

 

I have customized these object as per requiremnt. For. e.g Added few custom fields to every object, Changed Label of Account object to Client etc.

 

I have created Managed Package. My question is when  particular user is going to install my package, does managed package Account object overrides the standard Account object in customers org?

 

Cheers,

Devendra S

Hey,

 

It is impossible to "override" the Account object. If you've added custom fields to the Account in your packaging Org those will just be attached to the Account object in the target Org i.e. your customisations will augment the target Account.

So essentially, you cannot change the TAB name for a standard object (e.g, Accounts, Contacts), add a bunch of custom fields and have it be installed in the 'target' org as configured?  Is this true even if the target org is pristine and has no Account records in it?
