add field to multiple listviews on one object

Hi Salesforce developers,

As an admistrator, I need to add one new custom field to all listviews e.g. sharedvendor__c from the case object. There are over 50 different list views.

How can I do this in the most efficient way? I think this might require a DML statement or apex class, but cannot find the answer in any forum.

Can you help?

Hi Dave,

This is not feasible via UI.  You can check ListView metadata and use columns attribute in below article link.

You can edit more records at once:

Hope above information was helpful.

Hi Vinay, I had a look at the link. So, I need to change the metadata from the listview object. How do I do that? I see that somehow I need to add a field value to the column field which is a list of strings.

As an adminstrator, I now how to add apex code in the developer console, but do not know how to write it.
