Happy Holidays Y’all! We are officially in my favorite time of the year! While I don’t see any snow in the lovely Silicon Valley, I grew up with it and there is just something special in the air around this time. Specifically, in the Salesforce world, IndiaDreamin, the next biggest event after Dreamforce is happening right now! Make sure to follow along on Twitter via #IndiaDreamin
Firstly and most importantly, if you have certs you will want to keep reading! SalesforceWeekly published a great summary article about what you need to do to maintain your coveted Salesforce credentials. If you have a Certification and don’t want to lose it, read this article!
Next up is a sweet article from Automation Weekly about gratitude. I don’t know if it is a trend or something that is here to stay, but recently everyone I know and every social media I follow is talking about Gratitude and the impacts it can have on your life. While not specifically Salesforce related, he is one of my fellow Salesforce bloggers and we just finished Thanksgiving and moving into the rest of the Holiday season, which is a perfect time to think and read through this article. Hope you enjoy!
This article is from yours truly. Sometime during this month, I was asked about my favorite tools that I use in conjunction with Salesforce. As a result, I decided to write a post about all of my favorite tools both for the blog and for Salesforce. Hope you find it useful!
I’ll admit I have a bit of a crush on CPQ, so when I saw that Nuvem Consulting did a post this month about CPQ and 3 important things to know about it and why to use it, I was ecstatic and therefore I had to include it here. If you don’t know what CPQ is yet or you are still trying to understand what benefits it can provide you, I highly recommend checking this out.
Thank you Simon Lawrence for having these thoughts about testing and putting it to paper, of the virtual kind of course. As someone with a more technical background, something that has always irked me is the inability to really test flows and process builders. While Simon here provides an example, I like his out of the box thinking and the possibilities he sees of where things could be going. Honestly, I have everything crossed that he is right. While his example is still code based, I highly recommend taking a gander through the article even if you don’t code.
This article talks about something every admin should know about an encourage the business to understand and follow through on. Throughout this article, Salesforce sites that many reasons why businesses should have an integration user(s) in place. In my own experience, this has helped with debugging immensely, and if you can afford the licenses, one per each integration is best as it makes tracking down the culprit of an issue much easier. This is a must read for everyone.
Alrighty everyone, hats off to you in the coming new year, which is the next time you will hear from me. So enjoy the rest of 2018, don’t forget to link your webassesor accounts as noted in the first article, and have fun at all of those great World Tour events happening this month!
