Add OrgOptions Class to Apex Code for Determing Current Configuration

Salesforce Platform, Apex & Visualforce

Currently there are organization level options that can affect the object model in Apex Code. For example, the "Enable Activity Reminders" option will hide the "isReminder" property of the Task object if disabled. These type of situations can be handled with Dynamic Apex by checking for the presence of properties on objects via a describe call, though doing so requires several lines of code and uses up a highly limited resource (Describe sObject calls). It would be very useful if, instead of resorting to describe calls, there was a class with static properties/methods that we could use to determine the state of organization level options. For example, to properly handle the state of the "Enable Activity Reminders" option previously mentioned, we could use the following code: Task newTask = new Task(); if ( OrgOptions.enableActivityReminders == true )     newTask.set( 'isReminder', true ); newTask.Subject = 'Test Task'; insert newTask;
