Screen Shot 2016-02-24 at 1.38.39 PMWhy are my salesforce leads visible after conversion?  We recently ran into an issue and realized it’s actually an enhancement for the Spring ’16 release!

In Salesforce Classic, administrators and developers can now update fields and picklist values for leads already converted. This is a great update because it will create more accurate reports and audits for leads.

This can be easily done by setting User Permissions: “Set Audit Fields upon Record Creation” or “Update Records with Inactive Owners”

  1. From Setup, enter User Interface in the Quick Find box, then select User Interface.
  2. Select Enable “Set Audit Fields upon Record Creation” and “Update Records with Inactive Owners” User Permissions.
  3. Save your changes.
  4. Add the setting to your profiles. From Setup, enter Profiles in the Quick Find box, then select Profiles. Select the profile and then select Set Audit Fields upon Record Creation.
  5. Save your changes.
