The "Check Syntax" button in the Formula Editor only tests the Syntax of a Formula, not the Formula Logic.  

For example both ( A + B ) / C and  A + ( B / C ) are Syntactically correct, but they will return completely different (and potentially bad) results. 

Validation Rules are boolean, and so are Checkbox fields.  So if you ever want to test the Logic of a Validation Rule Formula, just create a hidden Formula Field that returns a Checkbox result and then put your Validation Rule Formula in it.

Then create a Report or a List View that displays all of the fields that your Validation Rule is evaluating, and your Formula(Checkbox) field side-by-side to check for loopholes.

Not all Functions, like ISCHANGED and PRIORVALUE are supported in Formula Fields

PS.  I've added the Validation Rule Test custom Formula(Checkbox) field on most Standard Salesforce objects in the Autumn'19 release of my Custom Formula Field Mix-Tape unmanaged package

The package is free, but if you really like it and are feeling generous, there's a link to my PayPal in the package (no obligation)

I do know how to link my Trailhead account with my success community profile!

BUT my Trailhead account is already linked to a previous community profile I had via a job. I now use my personal profile and would like to link it to Trailhead to display my badges. I know you cannot link your Trailhead to 2 community profiles but I do not have access to the old account to remove the link...

I have contacted Salesforce but they won't help me and keep telling me to post in the community/developer community. Does anyone have contact details for someone at Salesforce who can remove the Trailhead link on my old profile so I can re-link to my new profile?

I have built a process that checks a few fields at the opportunity level and if true, the action is to create a post.  I first built the action to post to 'This Record' with a message that contained an @mention to a group. 

When the criteria is triggered, I checked the chatter posts to test this process and found the following:
  • Opportunity and group had the post duplicated
I then changed the action to post to the group only and the same thing happened.

I'm sure this is a simple fix, but wondering why the posts are appearing twice when the criteria is met as my action is only appearing once.

Any tips?

I created the quote and tried to update the discount from the quote edit screen but I don't have an option to edit.

I then tried to apply a discount to the opportunity page but it's also locked.

I went to the Opportunity page layout to see if I can unlock the discount field so I can make changes, but even the option to unlock is locked!

Check the opp or quote lines.

When trying to send an email from a Case you are not the Case Owner off, it doesn't allow to send an email unless you have access to the Contact you select.

Now if you want to send an email and don't select any Contact (but use the additional to), it doesn't allow you to send the email due to insufficient privileges.

Any permissions that would get around this?

Just ran into this problem. Get the user to login to salesforce in a private/incognito window and see if that fixes it. If so, then clear their browser cache and cookies and it should work.

Hello all,

I hope any of you is able to answer/resolve my question.

Because 1 of our users is a lead generation agency and should not have access to all the information except for its own leads, I have set all the organisation-wide defaults to 'private'.
I have included all our employees in a group named 'everyone (except lead generation)'.
This group should be given full access to all the information and because of the lead generation agency not being part of this group, the organisation-wide defaults apply.


somehow the 'lead sharing rules' are no longer available, so I cannot create a rule which gives everyone in our organisation access to everyone's leads (etc).

How can I re-enable these 'Lead sharing rules'?

Thanks in advance,

Niels Donninger

Yes. Lead sharing rules are not available for Professional Edition.

May be
earlier you had higher Edition of SFDC so it was available to you and later SFDC license was downgraded to Professional Edition.

Pls check with your SFDC account manager.

I see!
Go to Account Annual Revenue field detail page. Click on 'Set Field-Level Security' button. Check the 'Visible' checkbox to make the field visible for all profiles. Save.

You should be able to see the field now in the record details.

A number of acquisitions mean that our company has multiple instances of Salesforce but wants one reporting output. Is there a way that this can be achieved?

@SHARON: So each instance will have different reports which will view/return their own instance's data. So YES the results couldn't be viewed in one report.
