Are you worried about the consequences you will face when hitting the file storage limits in Salesforce each time? Is the thought of manually moving the notes and attachments from your file storage to secondary storage scaring you?

If yes, then this is the right place for you to look. In this how-to blog, we are providing you with a clear-cut picture of how you can auto-move your Salesforce notes & attachments to any external storage.

Notes and Attachments in Salesforce

Salesforce files are all filled in under one single file repository in its file storage. Be it how many ever record you create, they all are stored under one location. Notes and attachments in Salesforce display all the files of a particular record. Also, this comes in handy with a lot of disadvantages such as limited storage, minimal file collaboration, zero folder structure, and many more which is not an ideal solution.

Big businesses always have their files incoming continuously and henceforth the above drawbacks will be some pain points that they have to come across daily. 

Most of the time, files get accumulated through

  • Email Attachments
  • Third-party applications
  • Manual upload

The above three are the major sources from where the pile of files gets dumped. No files can be neglected because control over information access is a very important virtue when it comes to running a business.
