Ability to set Profile permissions when adding a new object

Salesforce Platform, Administration & Sharing, Large Enterprise Ideas, Large Enterprise

Product Team Review

When adding a new object, the permissions are set to Read/Create/Edit/Delete for every profile. We should be able to set these permissions as the object is added, rather than being forced to go into every profile individually to edit this setting.

Thanks for the idea and comments. Consider a workaround of using the enhanced profile list views to mass add object permissions after the creation of one or more custom objects. You can also use the IDE to mass update object permissions across profiles.
