9 Salesforce Memes to Make You Smile

By Lauren Westwood

Here at Salesforce Ben, we all appreciate the “power of memes” – as they say, a picture paints a thousand words, and pairing an iconic image with a witty caption can really hit the spot!

We dipped a toe into the world of memes earlier this year, and now we’re hooked! From The Simpsons to The Office, there are infinite opportunities to apply pop culture to the Salesforce ecosystem – just a little light-hearted fun to connect with the community on those important topics. Let’s take a look at our top nine… so far!

7. Enter the Spiderverse

Wait, who? Salesforce is no stranger to renaming its functionality. Here’s a classic example of identity crisis – when Wave became Einstein Analytics, only to be renamed CRM Analytics a few years later.

8. Documentation… Anyone?

Documentation can often be an afterthought – a seemingly tedious and time-consuming task that gets neglected. But a lack of clear and concise documentation can lead to all sorts of issues in your org.

Context, impact analysis, best practice… you’re on your own, Senator!

    I love these The office one is the best! Automation to flow is a real deal! We have been working with many customers to help them augment this task. The most important part is the documentation of your current automation. Our dev team actually likes to do this. We document each automation and what it does, and then propose an object-based automation strategy to flow. It is a great way to get ahead of documentation and future scalable automation in flow. For those who need some help with flow, it is best to have someone build an existing automation in flow so you can see it in action. Then the dots usually start to connect.
