How To: Infer: Profiles (Short) Field in Salesforce

The Infer: Profiles (Short) field (API name: inferp__Infer_Profiles_Short__c) allows you to use Infer: Profiles with View Filters and in Formulas in Salesforce. Because this field is a short text field, the number of characters supported in this field is limited to 255 characters. In order to maximize the number of profiles that you can write to this field, Infer has created a 2-character short text code that is automatically generated anytime you save a Profile.


Where can I find this 2-digit code?

The 2-digit code can be found under the settings menu of each individual Profile. See the highlight "Abbreviated Name" section below.

How do I use this in Salesforce?

No, we do not currently support custom names. However, if you are interested in customizing the Abbreviated Names associated with your Profiles, please contact your Account Manager to prioritize this product request.
