Standard fields and standard picklists are those that change frequently between organizations. Unfortunately, Salesforce changeset does not support deployments of these components. This is one of the pain points for many Salesforce admins. However, if you use Copado Essentials, this is not a problem. We have this taken care of, elegantly.

Unlike Salesforce changeset, Copado Essentials supports 2 additional metadata types below:

Standard Field

This metadata type defines field related settings like help text, history tracking, ... This, however, does not include picklist values. As an example, if you compare Standard Field > Case.Type using Copado Essentials, you will see the diff view below.

Standard Value Set

This metadata type defines picklist values for a standard field. As an example, if you compare Standard Value Set > CaseType using Copado Essentials, you will see the diff view below.
