Syam Kishore: the key for me was learning everyday something new, because since I work as a salesforce adm I have some experience. I didn't try to memorize answers and questions, I don't find this valuable. I went to real situations.

I created a custom object in my production environment with some fields A,B,C.
I then created some other fields E,D,F in sandbox and I also created a trigger in sandbox.

After deployed the changesets to production, I tried to create a report on the custom object.
But I'm only able to see and drag A,B,C from the left panel.

So what might be the problem?

Check the field level security of the fields E,D and F by going to Setup -> Manage Users ->Profiles. Acces your profile , then the custom object and then the fields. Mark them visible and you are good to go. 
I'm assuming that you didn't move profiles as components in the outbound changeset from Sandbox, hence the discrepancy.

Specifically: I have a picklist field for Primary Sales Engineer on the account. When I create an opportunity, I'd like to pass that value down to the opportunity but I want to be able to change that value if I don't want the default.

You can do this with a simple workflow rule and two custom fields:

1. Create a custom formula field on opportunities that pulls-in the value from the Primary Sales Engineer account field, do not put this field on the page layout.
2. Create another custom field on the opportunity, this time a text field, and plan to add this one to the page layout.
3. Create a workflow rule and field update on the opportunity object that when an opportunity is created, will display the value from the hidden formula field.
4. If you want to change the defailt value in the text field, now you can simply key it in!

I'm installing and configuring Salesforce for Outlook right now and noticed it defaults to IE if I click on any item. Is there a way to link it to Chrome instead of IE, especially since IE is no longer supported?

Hello Nica,
Go to Control Panel ->Programs -> Default Programs -> Set Default Programs ->Google Chrome
Set the above to default. Check if that helps.

I have created an Account Hierarchy where changing the Parent Account Owner does not change the child account owner neither the contact owner changes.

Great use case for Processes - 
  1. Go to Setup | Create | Workflows & Approvals | Process Builder
  2. New Process

Since Process scheduled actions don't appear in the time-based queue I can't find the answer through trial and error.

I know when a workflow rule's criteria changes that sets the time-based action on queue the time-based action is removed from the queue. Is this the same with Process Builder and scheduled actions? If a scheduled action is trigger since the criteria on the process is met will that scheduled action be removed if the criteria changes before it fires?

Yes the Actions queued by the Processes comes under this -

i have been working on some changes in my sandbox and some involved updating picklists. I am lost as to what component they would be listed under in the change sets.
 Any ideas?
I also need to know how to add the below as well:
Campaign Influence
Campaign search layout Campaigns Tab

Hi Tammy,

If the updated picklist fields in question are custom fields, you'll want to select the "Custom Field" Component Type from the "Add to Change Set" page and proceed to locate the desired custom fields to be added to your change set. You should be able to sort the resultant list view by Name (i.e., a custom field's Field Label) or Type (i.e., the object to which a custom field belongs).

Standard Fields are not available as components for change sets. Neither are Standard Objects (as opposed to being able to add a Custom Object to a change set).

You will not be able to include Campaign Influence and Campaign search layout Campaigns Tab to your change set.

On a related note, when you include a Custom Object component in a change set, that Custom Object's search layouts are automatically included because they are a part of the custom object.

Here are some links to related information you may find useful--
Hope this helped!

It's one of those, I think that I know that answer, but couldn't find any resources. When you import a Lead from a web to lead form and you have it set to alert the User, but not block them from creating it, is the Lead created or does it error out on the backend and not create it? Same question for if you have a Lead to Contact matching rule (ie if a Contact exists and is created through a web-to-lead form). I know that you can report on these dupes with a custom report type, but how does that work specifically? Thanks!

Spoke with support. As i thought, if you have it alerting you on any Lead based dupe rule, it will not create the record. This document gives you the behavior and a solution. Duplicate rules needs to work better with web to lead (and leads in general).

Good afternoon,
When a user clicks the custom Log an Activity button that I created (at the opportunity level), the opportunity field is not populated (when they are creating it from the opportunity). Below is the link url. Is this correct?

/00T/e?who_id={!Opportunity.Id}&followup=1&tsk5=Enter Activity Subject Here&retURL=%2F{!Opportunity.Id}

Thank you!

Should have been what_id
/00T/e?what_id={!Opportunity.Id}&followup=1&tsk5=Enter Activity Subject Here&retURL=%2F{!Opportunity.Id}
