I was wondering, why I can not see search layouts for some custom objects:
OOr maybe I have to "extra" activate something somewhere, so I can see search layouts for these objects?.
Disclaimer: I am not a web developer. I only write basic HTML code.
I have to create a web-to-lead form. This is fairly straightforward using Setup > Customize > Leads > Web-to-Lead > Create Web-to-Lead Form button.
Here is some sample code that is relevant to my issue (first, last, e-mail, company fields):
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-type" CONTENT="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
<form action="https://www.salesforce.com/servlet/servlet.WebToLead?encoding=UTF-8" method="POST">
<input type=hidden name="oid" value="00Di0000000iuCr">
<input type=hidden name="retURL" value="http://www.expandmedia.com">
<label for="first_name">First Name</label><input id="first_name" maxlength="40" name="first_name" size="20" type="text" /><br>
<label for="last_name">Last Name</label><input id="last_name" maxlength="80" name="last_name" size="20" type="text" /><br>
<label for="email">Email</label><input id="email" maxlength="80" name="email" size="20" type="text" /><br>
<label for="company">Company</label><input id="company" maxlength="40" name="company" size="20" type="text" /><br>
<input type="submit" name="submit">
I can paste this in a test page on my web server (latest updated version of Windows 2003 running IIS). This code works flawlessly.
I have been asked to change the code so that the First and Last name fields MUST be filled in. If they are not filled in, the web page should fail to submit the information, and the person filling in the form should be notified with ERROR: Please fill in all required fields.
I am aware that there is code for validation and/or required, but all my research points me to making a form in java, PHP or another scripting language.
IS there a way to add code to a simple HTML page to make the fields mandatory. If NOT, is there a work around that doesn't require me to hire a web developer to do the work. I expect that there will be several versions of the form created and we modify the code frequently enough that I need to be able to do this on my own.
Many thanks in advance.

Use this in you Web-to-Lead form,
<label for="first_name">First Name</label><input id="first_name" maxlength="40" name="first_name" size="20" type="text" required/><br>
<label for="last_name">Last Name</label><input id="last_name" maxlength="80" name="last_name" size="20" type="text" required/><br>
Hope this will help you.
This might be a silly question as I don't have much experience in setting up SSO or redirects. But here goes.
How does one get a nicer URL for single sign on?
Instead of: [sitename].my.salesforce.com
How could I get: salesforce.[sitename].com ?
Do I still need to create the custom my domain in salesforce? Then have the url created by our web admins to redirect to the [sitename].my.salesforce.com then the SSO page?
I have two PDF files that are reporting as corrupt in the most current version of reader. The owner of the file is generally clueless as well but the timestamps are from November 2009. But I have no idea what's in these files aside from text. It may be mixed text/images or the result of a scan with OCR applied. I'm going to try some of the third party readers (like Foxit) to see if I have any better luck but while I'm downloading and installing those, does anyone have a suggestion or a tool that has had better than average results?
However, I have had success with the " PDF Recovery Toolbox " utility on one of the documents. The second document comes out as gibberish, but with the gibberish in the right places so I'm thinking corrupted embedded font for that one. http://www.pdf.recoverytoolbox.com/
I'd like to include a dynamic choice dropdown menu in a flow. I want to show a list of Opportunity Contact Roles, using the full name of the Contact as the label.
Using a normal dynamic choice, I can only pull the fields from Opportunity Contact Roles as the label (ContactID, ID, etc.). Under normal circumstances, I would simply create a custom formula field to pull the information I need from the Contact object, but I can't in this case because Opportunity Contact Role is not a first-class object.
I thought I might be able to loop through existing Opportunity Contact Roles, save the Contact IDs to a variable (using "add" instead of "equals"), but for some reason it's still not working. (I've verified that the loop and assignment works properly, but the dropdown menu isn't populating.) I've included a screenshot of the dropdown menu below.
Thanks! Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
Not sure if this is the best solution but I've used something similar in my org.
Create a custom object that has 3 fields, a lookup to Contact and Opportunity and Contact Name. This way you can use a first-class object. In your flow you can create records for this new custom object, which you can then use in your dynamic choice. And if you want to keep it clean, you can have the flow delete the records at the very end.
I just tested this in my org and it worked. My flow is as follows:
Fastlookup - opportunity contact roles related to opportunity.
Loop through collection
>Record Lookup - use loopvariable.contactID to get the Contact name
>Record Create - create a new record in your custom object. Set Contact Name, contact ID, and Opportunity ID.
Screen with picklist - Dynamic choice will lookup to the custom object. Everything with Opportunity ID. Choice Label can be contact name.
Fast Lookup - everything on custom object where ID is not null
Fast delete - the above.
This might not be the most bulk friendly, because it has lookups and creates within a loop, but unless they are choosing between 50 then it should be fine.
OE-Mail Recovery is a powerful tool to recover Outlook Express emails from corrupt dbx files and mbx files. It can repair dbx/mbx files and recover emails in them as much as possible, so to minimize the loss in file corruption.
Hope this helps.
This is more a question about personal preference within the community rather than an issue as such.
The following two formuals, if used in a validation rule, are indentical and do exactly the same thing. The only difference is that the first uses logical funtions AND() and OR() where as the second uses logical operators && and ||.
Function 1 - Logical functions
FieldA < 100,
FieldA < 50,
Function 2 - Logical operators
(FieldA < 100 && $Profile.Name='ProfileA')
(FieldA < 50 && $Profile.Name='Profileb')
There preference in here seems always to use the syntax in the first example. Why is this? To me the second example reads better and is easier to interpret with the human eye.
It is in no way a criticism of any community members. There are plenty of members smarter than I am but I'm interested to hear everybody elses thoughts :)
No offense taken, like I said I was only speaking fopr myself, that's the way I write formulas because it's what fit/flows the best for me as I think and write. I don't have any programming background, never learned or studied Unix, SQL, Cobol, or any of the C languages, I'm just a self-taught SFDC Admin / Community College drop-out with a 0.67 GPA
For me using < > = isn't as unnatural as && II because they're common operator I learned in basic math, whereas && II are not.
