I'm sure this is answered elsewhere, but I couldn't find the information.

I have a longstanding "Trailblazer Community" (formerly "Success Community") account--the account that I'm using right now to post this question on https://success.salesforce.com

There is also the "Trailblazer Community Groups" site https://trailblazercommunitygroups.com. As far as I can recall, the only time I ever use this site is when I RSVP to attend a local user group in person. I may be mis-rememberhing, but I swear that when I've done this in the past I was able to log into https://trailblazercommunitygroups.com by using the same Salesforce instance that I use to log into the Trailblazer (Success) Community.

Last week I got an invitation to a local community group that I want to attend, and they seemed to have changed the login interface for https://trailblazercommunitygroups.com. Now when I try to log in it doesn't prompt me to log into a Salesforce instance, it just asks me to fill in an email address and password directly on the page (see screenshot). Alternatively, I can use LinkedIn, Facebook, or Twitter to log in.

When I enter the email address an password associated with the Salesforce instance that I use for my Trailblazer (Success) Community account, I get an error message that says "the e-mail address and/or password you specified are not correct."User-added image

Separately--on Trailhead https://trailhead.salesforce.com--my account is tied to my LinkedIn credentials instead of a Salesforce instance. When I encountered the above error I tried the LinkedIn option to log into Trailblazer Community Groups"; this got me in, but it set up a brand new account from scratch instead of logging me into my existing account.

Can anyone tell me what's going on here? Is there a way to log into https://trailhead.salesforce.com using a specific Salesforce instance like we do here? If so, how do I do that?

This is fun, this was the #1 question at the Community Kiosk at Dreamforce last week. 

Soo...we used to use a platform called 'SplashThat' to manage our user group meetings, I can say amongst the User Group leader set I don't recall it winning a popularity contest. 

At the end July, the Success Community was rebranded and with that came the new TrailblazerCommunityGroups.com site & branding.  This is entirely different from the platform where you used to sign in (SplashThat) that was connected to your success trailblazer community credentials. 

With this new platform, you can register with an email or social sign-on, which is great for all attendees that may not have a specific salesforce login that are interested in learning more about Salesforce, WiT groups, etc. 

To summarize:

1) Success Community = Trailblazer Community
2) ^ these credentials are still the same, you can access your Community Group chatter page, answers, etc through them
3) SplashThat uses to use these same credentials, but was retired in August. 
4) There is a new platform, Bevy, that requires you to register with your email or social logins and all previous ones do not work.

Pitched the idea of doing V2MOM to my boss. He raised his eyebrows and was like, this is cool. We may do this company wide if it works well. 

He then asked can you put this in Salesforce somehow so I can view you and your teams goals and then add mine making sure only appropriate people see the appropriate individual goals. 

My answer was "of course!" I'm sure I won't be the first one. Has anyone done this in their org willing to share how you did and what you liked and didn't like?

Thanks!

You are right, Jessi.  I've just tried and got Component error "Uncaught Unable to find action 'onValueChange' on the controller of myV2MOM:V2MOM_Measure" when I entered a method. Measure Name input box is looking for an action of 'onValueChange' event -basically it's triggered every every letter we type- in the input box, but the Controller doesn't have a code for it!   Unfortunately I am not able to view the code since V2MOM is a managed package.  So it seems a bug in the component that should be fixed by Salesforce Labs

Hi Nandhini - I would also join the Cleveland Salesforce Non Profit User Group, Admin User Group, and Women in Tech groups. 

There is a strong group of rockstar UG leaders in Cleveland like Amy Oplinger and Shannon Zdanowicz, they'll be able to make some introductions for you.  There is also the Cleveland GiveCamp that is coming up this summer, spend a whole weekend volunteering and working for nonprofits in the area.  

GiveCamps are a great place to work with other Salesforce professionals, show off your skills on real projects, and make great connections.  I've found some great talent at Pittsburgh GiveCamp events, two admin volunteers I met there are now doing fulltime consulting work as a result of connections they made at GiveCamp.

I have been asked how to define the difference between a BA and Salesforce Admin/declarative developer based on recent structure changes.  Interested in getting insight on how other organizations separate duties or if they're a combined role.

Salesforce Trailhead has some info on different roles within the Salesforce platform right on the home page. Not sure if it's enough info, but should give you some ideas as to how these roles differ within the platform:

Hey everyone, I haven't set up sharing rules/want the best practice before I dive in.

My scenario:  I have multiple companies (from acquisitions) working in the same org.  their records are separated by record type etc.  One issue that comes up, the reps will use the global search and see leads that aren't there's, then they take them and work them.  So in short, these companies (which are all part of my company - they are subsidiaries) are poaching each others leads.  Each company has slightly different business deals they are closing, but in short I want to set something up where if someoen if someone has Profile X, then they can't see specific record types, so then they won't even come up in search.

How can I take care of something like this specifically for Leads and Opportunities.
Lead is set to Public Read/Write/Transfer
Opportunity is set to Public Read/Write

Thanks for any info!

Hi Peter,

If you want leads/opportunities to be invisible to any subset of your org, then you will need to set their OWD (Org Wide Default) to Private. Once you do, you can begin working on who actually does get to see them.

First of all, standard objects always grant access via hierachy. This means that if a user owns a record, then that user's manager also sees that record, and that user's manager, and so on - according to your org's role hierarchy. This can be a great way of making sure your company dirrectors get to see everything that goes on in their company (only).

You may want to set up some ownership-based sharing rules so that other agents in the company can see leads and opportunities owned by agents in the same company. Roles also come into play here.
