    TWS will not pull object metadata that was changed via Saleforce UI.  The specific problem is a formula field where the formula changed.  It may extend to other situations as well, but I cannot get TWS to pull down the metadata with the new formula.  Using Spire 14.

    If find the and delete the object information from the .sfproj file, then do a Pull from Salesforce, it will restore the file to the project with the updated server version.  But, this is not a sustainable solution as it means I have to know about the changes rather than rely on TWS to recognize them.  I won't always know when someone else changes a formula field via the Salesforce UI.

      Hi Jason,

      Thank you for contacting us with this information.

      May I please clarify with you what version of the Salesforce Organization do you have?

      Also, I kindly ask you to reproduce the issue one more time and right after this please send us a bug report directly from TWS. This option is available for you in the menu Help -> Report a Bug. Please enable the 'Attach Log File' checkbox and specify your email. This way we will receive your TWS logs which can help us to find the exact reason why the formula field isn't updated in your objects.

      Thank you,
