How can I create a pop-up alert in marketing cloud so for example the user is getting the information that he or she works with confidential data?
Best Answer chosen by Jan Berger
Jan BergerJan Berger
So the customer requirement is that they want to have an notification for the user after the user logged in to the Marketing cloud and furthermore during they work in the Marketing cloud application. My first idea was to customize the Marketing Cloud Layout and fill in the Logo of the customer with the word "confidential". This do not really worked. I used the brand builder but the only way I could realize my idea was to customize the Login Page Layout. There I could upload the logo with the word confidential. But are there any more options where you can create an notification which pop up at the beginning or after a couple of minutes? So the user get´s an active information.
Maybe there are some other ideas in customizing the UI to realize the requirement of the customer to aware the users that they work with confidential data.

SF recommends using the following formula to calculate a contact's age on TODAY's date:


But how would one write a formula to calculate a contact's age on a specific FUTURE date?  Say, for example, on the first day of school next year: 9/1/2013?

Depends if you want 9/1/2013 in a certain field.  For example, say you type the date under CalcDate__c (Custome date field).   Instead of using the Today() calculation, change it to point to your new field.  If you are using the standard birthday field, then change the DOB__C to Birthdate

IF(AND(MONTH(CalcDate__C) = MONTH(DOB__c), DAY(CalcDate__C) >= DAY(DOB__c)),

I have a client who is using the free version of MailChimp. We've integrated it with Salesforce, but have found that the connection to Salesforce campaigns is missing. Is it possible to integrate MailChimp Campaigns with Salesforce's Campaigns in order to automatically make the recipients/responders members of the Salesforce campaign, plus get closed loop reporting?

Thank you!

The out of the box Mailchimp for Salesforce doesn't integrate with Campaigns object. They have a Custom Object called Mailchimp Campaigns that stores information from MailChimp such as the Analytics, Reports etc. May be the intention was to make it available for all the Sales Cloud editions even for the Group which doesn't have the Campaigns feature.

Now, if you're doing this for a Client that is on the Enterprise then you could think about using the Process Builder to get around the limitation. The idea would be to create a Process on top their Custom Object called Mailchimp Campaigns. It would trigger whenever a record is created under that object and as a result of which a Create Record action would fire that creates a corresponding record with all the details in the native Campaigns object.

Are you trying to edit an existing task or you are creating a new task?

Once a task is created and assigned to a single user , you cannot go back to it and assign it to multiple users. Multiple users will not show up. It shows up only when you create a task.

Little more detail: Salesforce does not actually assign a single task to mutiple users when you assign it to group, in fact there are individual tasks created for every member present in that group. So multiple users assignment does not work on edits.

I don't know how to filter them out, but the modules are sorted for you in the following groups:

1) In progress at the top
2) unstarted in the middle
3) completed at the bottom

We are currently looking at moving away from Rethink and looking to build on the Salesforec Enterprise Org. Apparently with Rethink, you basically have to start from scratch if you end up leaving their platform. Does anyone have any experience transfering data from a platform? What are the best practices?

If your current platform can export data in CSV files (even if it is via some sort of row-based 'report' that can be saved and manipulated to generate CSV, you can use those CSV files to import data into Salesforce.

force:hasRecordId interface doesn't get recordId attribute value of the record in lightning component in Winter 18?

comp code:

<aura:component implements="force:lightningQuickAction,force:hasRecordId" >
   <aura:attribute name="recordId" type="id" access="global"/> 
  <aura:handler name="init" value="{!this}" action="{!c.doInit}"/>

comp controller js:
 doInit: function(cmp)
 console.log("recordidjs: "+component.get("v.recordId"));

We have added the above component in record detail page
In Winter 18 - we get "recordidjs: undefined" in console

This same code displays record id in previose releases

Ran into the same issue but calling the lightning component from a quick action instead the global action solved the issue.

Gentle reminder to also replace the global action on the record page with the quick action.

I'm trying out Inbox for my team, both the Android app and Chrome extension.  The Android app allows me to snooze an email to come back to my inbox later.  Is there any way to do this with the Chrome extension?

I'm currently using another Chrome extension, Gmelius, for snoozing emails.  It would be great to replace this completely with Inbox.

Dear all,

as the historical trend reporting is very limited in Salesforce I would be interested what the limitations in Wave Analytics are. Do I have better and more possibilities there? Especially the time frame and the amount of data, has that been increased with Wave?

Thanks and best regards

Hi There,

I am setting up a process with Process Builder. I have a Job (Object) where i want to check if a value has changed. 
  1. I have set to start the process when the record is created or edited. Allow process to evaluate a record multiple times in a single transaction set to yes.
  2. I have defined the criteria to a filter contion that evaluates if MyField1  Is Changed = True
  3. Action: Update MyField2 with the value of MyField1 
What i need is the action to be executed both when MyField1  is updated  or created since in both IsChanged would be set to True. However, MyField2 only gets populated whe there is an update in the filed.

How could i get MyField2 populated both when MyField1 is updated or filled in for the first time?

Many thanks,

I beleive the root of the issue is that you need to account for both the 'create' and 'update' conditions in your logic with more than just 'Is Changed'.  You're assuming that SFDC recognizes the insert of a new record as a change in Field1 from 'null' to 'ValueX' when I don't beleive the system evaluates it that way.  

Are you using the 'Filter Conditions are met' or 'Formula Evaluates to True' option for your Criteria?

Sounds like 'Filter Conditions': then create two criteria - 1) Field1 IsChanged =TRUE -OR- 2) Field1 WasSet =TRUE.
 and dont' forget to change the Filter Considitons to 'Any of the consitons are met (OR)'

If using 'Formula': then use something like OR( ISNEW(), ISCHANGED( Field1)).

If you get stuck please try to post screenshots, and if this works please remember to mark 'Best Answer' so that your question gets closed for the community.  Thanks!
