Hi All,

The users of Data Loader in my org are unable to use Data Loader since yesterday.  
  1. We are all using Macs, the application opens and we are asked to login.  
  2. We select the OAuth option and select our Production environment.  
  3. Once we enter our credentials, we get a pop-up for Allow Access? Select Allow.
  4. Then we get a pop-up that says, File Download (attached)User-added image
  5. After clicking Save, the application hangs on the following screen (attached)User-added image
  6. When you close out of it an error appears on the regular login screen saying to check your username and password; however, when I go to the Setup -> Manage Users -> Login History it shows that the Status of the Dataloader Partner application was a Success.

That worked!  Thank you!  We had tried appending the token to our password, but I think it was a combination of changing the url to, choosing Password Authentication option, and appending the security token to my password.

1) Go to Setup --> Open Developer Console.
2) Select "Debug" tab --> Open Execute Anonymous Window
3) In this window, type
Database.executeBatch(new MyClass());

Please make sure to replace MyClass with the apex batch class name that you have written/ want to execute.

We have a need to track page views & length of time visited within our community. Ultimately we would also like to track button clicks, as well. Does Salesforce's Analytics Wave have any features for tracking this type of information? We are looking at Google Analytics but would like to know if the functionality is available within Salesforce.

Hi @Casey Shockley and @Angelo Rendon - Wave (Analytics Cloud) will not track page views or length of time itself. Wave is just a BI tool used to present data from Salesforce and outside sources. It could be used to create interactive views of the data from Google Analytics.
Here is documentation I found on adding Google tracking to a Community:
Note: I think this only works for newer (Lightning) communities.
There’s also an app, but I believe it is out-of-date:
Hope this helps!

So I've been working a few some basic tutorials in learning Salesforce, and just completed Administrations for New Admins. In that tutorial, I got to know an admin named Rob from A.W. Computing pretty well, and have come to trust his expertise on all things Salesforce.

Now I'm starting Administration Essentials for Experienced Admins, and all of a sudden Rob has been replaced by a woman named Tonya Jones. Does anyone know if Rob is still with the company? Nothing at all against Tonya, I just want to make sure Rob's okay; he seemed like a good guy.

Hi Nate,

Great question.  Rob is doing great.  Since his tenure as a newbie admin, he has moved up in the world and is now a Saleforce Business Systems Analyst.  He is working on the same team as Tonya, but has moved on to greener pastures.

To all,
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="" method="POST">
<input type=hidden name="oid" value="00Di0000000iuCr">
<input type=hidden name="retURL" value="">
<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.

Hi Paul,

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.

Hi folks,

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?

Failure on versions:


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.
