Hey all,
I received a spreadsheet from the business to create Lead Assignment rules by zip code. There are over 43k of them so manually creating them is not an option. 
I don't see the Lead Assignment object in the data loader, so I don't think I can insert these.
Has anyone had this same issue? Is there a way to get these leads assigned to the proper sales rep by zip code?

  1. Create a custom object called ‘Zip Codes’. Create fields as necessary, including the following: Zip Code (text, 10 characters) and Sales Rep (user lookup). Make the ‘Zip Code’ field an external ID.
  2. Create a trigger which will do the follow. On creation of a Lead, use the zip code to run a query on the ‘Zip Codes’ object to identify the Sales Rep for that zip code, and assign the Lead to the Sales Rep.
  3. The solution works even better if the customer already maintains a spreadsheet of Zip Codes and associated Sales Reps. In this instance, they can convert the spreadsheet into a CSV, and upload the CSV of all Zip Codes.

I have a field called 'Churn Month' that when I change the account status to 'Lost Customer', I want to populate with a formula (as a Field Update in a workflow):

if( ISPICKVAL(Churned_at_the_end_of_POC__c,"NO"), 
if( ISBLANK(next_bill_2__c) , TODAY(), 
Onboarding__c )

When the 'Churn Month' field is blank, the process works perfectly. However, for some of our accounts we already have a past value on this field (bring-back customers that churned and came back), it won't update and the old value remains.

Any suggestions why?

Can you post a screen shot of the record that is failing with the data being used in the WFR?

We use Role hierarchy.

CEO is on the TOP, and sales rep is under him.

However,  on CEO's Calendar tap(in Lightning), any sales rep's event or task is invisible.

Why is this happened?

How do I make it visible?

Please share your expertise!

Calendar Sharing and Ownership
You can’t share your calendar with your manager or other coworkers. Managers in the role hierarchy can use reports to view events owned by people below them in the role hierarchy, but not to edit them. Only one person can own a meeting. If you reassign a meeting to someone else, it no longer appears on your calendar.

Hi Guys, 
I'm not sure if this is the right place to share this, but I thought this might be helpful to everyone.

As you know now we can add the Trailhead Badges that we earn to our LinkedIn Profiles as well. But this functionality is only there for the Badges that you earn after this funcationality came out.

What about the Badges we earned before that ?

No worries, there is a way out.
I've developed a Library of Trailhead Badges where you guys can easily add them to your LinkedIn Profiles

Salesforce Trailhead Library (

I would love to hear your feedback on this. Any changes that might be required. Right now it only contains the Badges for the Modules, I will be adding other Badges like for Projects in future.
Here's the accompanying blog post ( as well.

Is there a way to stop Tasks from appearing in the Chatter feed?  

As an example, if I send an email to someone via Salesforce, there's no need for it to appear in Chatter.  The activity is already captured in the Activity History section, so seeing it Chatter is redundant.

Hey Keith,

To disable the the Task from appearing in Chatter feed:-

Go--Setup--Customize--Chatter---Setting---Disable checkbox "Generate Feed items for New Tasks"

Note:- This is organization wide setting,Hence deactivating will have impact across org wide.

In Lightning, through Path Settings my last lead status is showing up on the status bar as "Converted" and the Key Fields (which happen to be required and super important) and Guide to Success are not there.

I've edited in Lead Processes. I've even tried adding a dummy status to see. Nothing. It's a massive problem.

Tyson, the behavior of Lead Path Settings is confusing when it comes to 'Converted' Lead Status. 
'Converted' on the Lead Path indicates if the Lead is ready to be converted to an Account and Contact (also, optionally to an Opprtunity), and not specifically the Lead Status Name which is set as Converted in the Lead Status picklist menu. This is why when you click on 'Converted' (and select 'Mark as current stage') on the Lead Path, you will be presented with the Convert Screen. 
In order for you to see the 'Key Fields' and 'Guidance for Success' for the Converted Lead Status, you would need to select the respective 'Converted' Lead Status from the Details section of the Lead record and not the Lead Path. Once you do this, you will see the Lead Path showing the respective Converted Lead Status together with 'Key Fields' & 'Guidance for Success'. Please note that you would need to manually click the 'Convert' button on the Lead Record to actually convert the Lead.

Brackets are not properly placed.
Even you can use ternary operator.

if (x > y)?system.debug('greater no is = ' + x) : system.debug('greater no is = ' + y);

Hi all

I have 19 accounts/profiles in the success community, from past projects, different orgs etc. Can anything be done?

Ideally I'd like just one - is it possible to merge or delete?

Creds for some of these accounts are long forgetten....


Many me...

As per the produyct management comment on this idea:
"There is currently no way to move the activity (answers, ideas, etc) from one profile to another profile. That content will continue to exist and be available to other to see and will be linked to the old profile. Users who tried to access that old profile would get an error message that it is no longer available. Being able to pull activity created by multiple users together onto one user is the gist of merging user profiles and is what we are unable to do right now"
Hi Everyone,
 Can we request the App seller to make some customization only for us in their managed pakages.Is it possible....

Note: Its a paid App.

Jeff MayJeff May
It will depend on the vendor. It is possible to have an extension created, but you will definitely need to pay for it.

There may be several reasons where the user is not getting any email:
  • First of all, check your org Deliverability setting whether it's on or No access.
  • If you haven’t yet activated the community you want to add the external user to, deselect Generate the new password and notify user immediately so that users don’t receive a password before the community is activated.
