    Hi John, You said in the video that we can have maximum 3 external ids defined for the object. However from some of the articles in the salesforce site I see they have mentioned it is 7. Could you please clarify what is the right value. Below link is one of the reference.

      Oh I see it is already answered previously. Please ignore this comment.

      Updated thanks – was already updated in the text, added to the video.

        It actually still says 3 in the video.

          The annotations don’t come through unless you on – looking into this…

    TextArea (Long) and TextArea (Rich) – now have more max chars [ Not sure you have mentioned this later !].

    Text Area (Long) Allows users to enter up to 131,072 characters that display on separate lines similar to a Description field. You can set the length of this field type to a lower limit, if desired. Any length from 256 to 131,072 characters is allowed. The default is 32,768 characters.

    Text Area (Rich) With the use of a toolbar, users can format the field content and add images and hyperlinks. The toolbar allows the user to undo, redo, bold, italicize, underline, strike-out, add a hyperlink, upload or link to an image, modify alignment, add a numbered or non-numbered list, indent, and outdent. The maximum field size is 131,072 characters, inclusive of all the formatting and HTML tags.
