List of User fields not available in Apex

I am looking to write some custom functionality for creating a User.

The problem I am facing is that some of the standard User fields don’t appear to be available through the API. I found this Idea about the Accessibility Mode field that appears on the standard UI. According to that idea, Salesforce Support discovered that it’s not actually a field at all but a, “User Interface feature that is not stored on the User object, but is merely referenced.”

My question is, does anyone know of a list of User fields that are in this same state? I can’t seem to find access to a few of the fields available during standard User creation:

  • Quick Access Menu
  • Color-Blind Palette on Charts
  • Allow Forecasting
  • etc…


I tried to relate API Name with UI label and here is what I found.
