So here's my dilemma...

My company only uses the Salesforce Service Cloud. Even then, we do not use communities and very limited chatter. I have taken both ADM 201 & ADM 211 classroom course. I passed the Administrator Certification exam last year and would like to pass the Advanced Admin Cert this year. I already have 1 failed attempt; studied for almost 2 months using my Trailhead account and searching free websites that covered topics in the study guide. Obviously it wasn't enough.

Are there any reputable online paid courses (I am not looking for dumps as I really want to learn and understand SF at an advanced level), or does anybody have premeir support that I could pay to access?

Hi Ranjitha,

A very Simple explanation

Lightning App - Are the collection of Tabs(Objects, Lightning Components) that works together to achieve our functionality. For Example - Service, Sales, Service Console, and etc. And one more thing these apps will not be availbale into Salesforce Classic.

Connected Apps: - Connected Apps are used to Authenticate our salesforce while consuming Salesforce API (no matter SOAP or REST) then we go for Connected Apps which provides Client Secret and Client Key that we use in the request. These two keys are responsible to know which salesforce org we are going to take access.

Example: - If you are using Facebook then you may have used the app like "know your marriage Prediction" these all asking for facebook permission they use connected Apps but of Facebook.

I have two custom objects which are Shopping Cart Items and Payments. The Shopping Cart Items have a lookup to Payments.

So what I want to do is have a list of all of the Shopping Cart Items related to the Payment in a text field on the Payment using the Name field in Shopping Cart Item.

I can't seem to figure out how the loop should be set up. Any help?

I am trying to import a set of recurring donations  into salesforce using data loader. But during the import salesforce creates recurring donation entry but not the corresponsing recurring oppurtunities for each.  When I try with single record import it creates both recurring donation and corresponsing oppurtunities but same does not happen when I do it in bulk. can any one help please.

You'll need to import the opportunities that are related to the recurring gift separately and relate them to the recurring gift by putting the recurring gift ID in the field on the opportunity. The mechanism that creates the opportunities only works when you're in the browser and not when records are uploaded via the API.

Yes, you can add links to a form field aka label. It turned out to be very simple. I used this tag in the label to open the url in a new page. 

a href="url" target="_blank">text</a>

So my label read:

I agree to the <a href="url" target="_blank">Privacy Policy</a>.

Hi, 

We are facing two issues and I have a hard time to solve them. 

1) The users also have the permission to 'customize and create listviews', that used to work perfectly and doesn't work anymore.

2) Until recently for our customer portal users it was possible to use the kanban view on 'work items' tab. Now that is not possible anymore.

Can anyone help?

We are using the non-profit CRM and created a custom field in the household view for newsletter since we only want one newsletter going to the house even though there might be multiple contacts listed in the household.

When I create a custom report to pull the right information from the household for mailing labels we found that when running the report, if there were 3 contacts listed in the household then the report listed the household 3 times.  How do I hide the duplicates so when I run the report I am only seeing the household listed once?

 Hi Jody, I believe you're using the wrong report type for your report.

You are starting with a report that begins with Contacts and including Households, right? That's your problem. The report is looking at each individual and giving you that data. So if you have 4 people in a Household you're getting each person in the Household on each row of the report. 

Instead, create a new custom report and select "Other Reports" from the box on the far left, then "Households" in the middle box.

Now you'll get a report which each Household in its own line. Mind you, this report won't have any contact-specific data unless you've added fields that pull data from household contacts. But for a postal mailing list, this is what you want.

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?

Thanks!

I want to add my certification to my profile isn't there some official icon or logo I can add?

Hi Andy,

In the email you received when you passed, they provide a link for the official logo
User-added image

In the top right of the screen you are looking at now you can also access your profile and edit it.  The logos don't show up automatically.  A lot of people put them on their profile picture, to each their own, my profile picture is currently a golf ball.  

In the About Me section of your profile is where I find most people put their certifications, it's where I put mine.

If you want full visibility, add it to your profile picture.

If you want recruiters calling make sure you add it to your LinkedIn profile :)

Hi Griffen,
Are you in Lightning or Classic? What type of activity are you trying to create, Log a Call, Event, etc?
