A logical segment of your organization's data. For example, if your company is organized into different business units, you could create a division for each business unit, such as “North America,” “Healthcare,” or “Consulting.”
create(), describeSObjects(), getDeleted(), getUpdated(), query(), retrieve(), update(), upsert()
The values available for that field are the global division ID for the organization, created when divisions are first enabled, and any other division IDs that have been created. The division ID associated with a user is populated in the objects owned or created by the user.
You can use the division ID to make searches, reports, and list views run more quickly and return more relevant results if an organization has very large data sets. For more information, see the Salesforce online help, in the Fields description for the object.
You can use WITH in SOSL to pre-filter results based on division. This is faster than specifying the division in a WHERE clause.
The User object has a Division field that is unrelated to this object. The Division field is a standard text field similar to Company or Department that has no special properties. Do not confuse it with the DefaultDivision field, which does relate to this object.
