Eliminate Need for Master-Detail Relationship for Roll-ups

Custom Schema

I want to be able to have a roll-up for any related object regardless if there is a Master-Detail relationship. If the object is linked to another object, then it should be able to roll-up.

    Dean- I understand your frustration around this particular request. As much as we want to deliver every Idea we can, not every Idea is the same and some are much more complex/difficult to implement than others.  I'm sorry you feel we ignore popular requests becasue we definitely don't! In fact we have been steadily picking away at the them, as a priority, with each release. To date 60% of the Top 20 Ideas (by point value) have already been delivered and 85+% are on our long term roadmap at this time. So votes, and your voice, definitely do matter and actively help shape our product's direction.

    Previous Update: 
    Update from Product Management:
    Eliminating the Need for Master Detail Relationships for Rollups is unfortunately not on our current roadmap.  We recognize the value it would provide, but as you can imagine there is a lot of complexity behind the scenes here. Since this is important to you we'll continue to actively track it. Should our plans change we'll post a new update to the Idea. Thank you.
