Enabling or disabling Chatter

You must enable Chatter in BMC Remedyforce and in your Salesforce organization for using Chatter Feed and creating records by using Chatter posts.

Enabling feed tracking for Salesforce Chatter

After you have installed the managed package, you must enable feed tracking for custom objects and the fields of custom objects. You can enable feed tracking for 20 fields of each object. The updates of the enabled fields appear in the Chatter Feed.

Enable feed tracking for the following custom objects and the fields of custom objects:

  • Broadcast
  • Incident
  • FAQ
  • Change Request
  • Base Element - Enable feed tracking for this object to view posts, comments, and field updates that are made to a configuration item.

If you have added custom fields to existing objects or to custom objects, you must enable feed tracking to track changes to those fields in the Chatter feed.
