I don't recall receiving an email alert for the certification maintenance exams for Winter '16 on either Admin or Dev certs.  Googling for the training resources only revealed that others had noted the same.

To save others the time of hunting for the training material, it's here:
Winter ‘16 Administrator Release Exam (

The modules are listed here:

Happy SuperBowl Sunday - go Broncos!
I am having trouble with a formula passing syntax - and further I am not sure it will work if I can get it to pass syntax.

This is what I need:
Email Alert if:
On an Opportunity where record type  = x AND Opportunity is PO Received Won (Deal = Opportunity)
AND EITHER of the following 2 fields change:
  • Quantity
  • Estimated Delivery Date
Here is what I have so far:
 ISPICKVAL( StageName , "PO Received Won Deal"),
 RecordTypeId = "012A0000000Cz3S"
 ISCHANGED( TotalOpportunityQuantity ),
 ISCHANGED( Estd_deliv_Date__c )

Thanks for any help

Hey Kevin, even though I am not into Superbowl, I will help you out with this ;)
You are missing a comma and a few parentheses.

Use this instead:
    ISPICKVAL( StageName , "PO Received Won Deal"),
    RecordTypeId = "012A0000000Cz3S",
    OR (
         ISCHANGED( TotalOpportunityQuantity ),
         ISCHANGED( Estd_deliv_Date__c )

Provided you have your logic well thought out and in accordance with the requirement, it should work as expected.

I am trying to create a validation rule that will check if multiple fields are filled in when the opportunity is at a specific sales stage 

These are the fields as well as the data type
Potential_plan_signed__c            - Date
Potential_Design_Sale__c           - Picklist
Rating__c                                      - Picklist
Sq_Ft__c                                       - Number
Prix_Plans__c                               - Currency
O_Score_Project_Location__c     - Picklist
O_Score_Tech_Complexity__c     - Picklist

This is what I have so far; when I remove the 3 in bold the rule works

ISPICKVAL(Potential_Design_Sale__c, ""), 
ISPICKVAL(Rating__c, ""), 
ISPICKVAL(O_Score_Project_Location__c, ""), 
ISPICKVAL(O_Score_Tech_Complexity__c, ""), 
NOT(ISBLANK(Potential_plan_signed__c )), 

ISPICKVAL(StageName, "5 - Offre de Service") 


Thanks for your help

If you need to make ALL of them required then this = 
    TEXT(StageName) = "5 - Offre de Service",

Hi Nicole,
Please See the below screenshot and please refer the following link for the complete formula and explanation and you will also find other Common Date formulas there.
You just need to change the time (16:00 to some other value depending on your time zone and the difference between GMT and your time zone) the below formula works if you are in PDT
DATETIMEVALUE( '1900-01-08 16:00:00' )

Hi Gary,

with the Geolocation Fields you can calculate distances in Formula Fields. However, this requires some serious implementation time in your case.

Instead, you could look at applications from the AppExchange, which can help you with your mission:

Geopointe for example, allows you to indicate locations over all Standard and Custom Objects (and Standard and Custom Fields), and offers extensive analytic capabilities.

Hope this answers your question. If it does, please mark as best answer :-)

I have a tabular report that shows a 'grand total' for the number of records, but I want to see the sum total of other columns at the bottom of the report without exporting to xls. Any ideas?

I'd like to be able to apply a validation rule to say:-

Must complete A field (checkbox) OR B field (date) in order to save record.

AND cannot complete both A AND B fields.

Appreciate any assistance, thank you.

This should do the job

( Checkbox__c == TRUE), 
(DAY( ( SLAExpirationDate__c )) > 0 ) 
(Checkbox__c == FALSE), 
ISBLANK(SLAExpirationDate__c )
