Enable Hover Details

Hover details display an interactive overlay containing detailed information about a record when users hover the mouse over a link to that record in the Recent Items list on the sidebar or in a lookup field on a record detail page. Users can quickly view information about a record before clicking View for the record's detail page or Edit for the edit page. The fields displayed in the hover details are determined by the record's mini page layout. The fields that display in document hover details are not customizable. This option is enabled by default.


To view the hover details for a record, users must have the appropriate sharing access to that record, as well as the necessary field-level security for the fields in the mini page layout.

Enable Related List Hover Links

Related list hover links display at the top of record detail pages and custom object detail pages in Setup. Users can hover the mouse over a related list hover link to display the corresponding related list and its number of records in an interactive overlay that allows users to quickly view and manage the related list items. Users can also click a related list hover link to jump down to the content of the related list without having to scroll down the page. The Enable Related List Hover Links checkbox is the default selection.

Enable Separate Loading of Related Lists

When enabled, users see primary record details immediately; as related list data loads, users see a progress indicator. Separate loading can improve performance on record detail pages for organizations with large numbers of related lists. This option is disabled by default. Note that this option does not apply to Visualforce pages, user pages, the self-service portal, or other pages for which you cannot control the layout.

Enable Inline Editing

Inline editing lets users quickly edit field values, right on a record's detail page. This option is enabled by default and applies to all users in your organization.


This doesn't enable inline editing for profiles. Select Enable Enhanced Profile List Views under Setup.

Enable Tab Bar Organizer

The Tab Bar Organizer automatically arranges tabs in the main tab bar to prevent horizontal scrolling of the page. It dynamically determines how many tabs can display based on the width of the browser window and puts tabs that extend beyond the browser's viewable area into a drop-down list.


The Tab Bar Organizer isn't available with the Partner Portal or Customer Portal.
The Tab Bar Organizer is only available with the new user interface theme. Organizations using the old user interface theme can enable the feature, but it won't be available for users until the new theme is also enabled.
The Tab Bar Organizer isn't available on Internet Explorer 6.

Enable Printable List Views

Printable list views allow users to easily print list views. If enabled, users can click the Printable View link from any list view to open a new browser window, displaying the current list view in a simple, print-ready format. The link is located next to the Help for this Page link in the colored title bar of the page.

Enable Spell Checker

When enabled, the Check Spelling button appears in certain areas of the application where text is entered, such as sending an email, or when creating events, tasks, cases, notes, and solutions. Clicking the button checks the spelling of your text. Spell Checker does not support all the languages that Apto supports. For example, Spell Checker doesn't support Thai, Russian, and double-byte languages, such as Japanese, Korean, or Chinese.

Enable Spell Checker on Tasks and Events

Enables the Check Spelling button when users create or edit tasks or events. The spell checker analyzes the Description field on events and the Comments field on tasks.

Enable Customization of Chatter User Profile Pages

Enables administrators to customize the tabs on the Chatter user profile page. This includes adding custom tabs or removing default tabs. If disabled, users see the Feed and Overview tabs only.
