My org has created a community for the customers.
I need to enter as a customer to see what they see in order to create the adequate rules in their profile.
The question is the following: If I use my credentials can I enter this community?
I have assigned in the community a customer community profile but yet that account doesn't have access to the community portal.

PS.I have also assigned a permission set (community license) for this profile
What am I missing?

Hi All,
 
Is there a way to have color emojis/emoticons in a custom picklist ? I am able to copy paste the simple non-color emoticons though.
 
I have seen couple of instances where I saw color emoticons in the picklist.

Please let me know.
 
Thanks,
Karthik

Found an answer. On Mac OSX use emoji keyboard via Command+Control+Space. In Windows 10, you can use the "touch keyboard" and then the emoticons. Hope this helps.

Hello, 
I have installed Eclipse on my machine. I would like to use Eclipse to view all associations to the Email Templates in my org. Once I know where the Email templates are referenced I can then decide to delete or keep the email templates. Could you please tell me the steps needed for me to see this information in Eclipse? 
Thanks!

Not really a question, just sharing an experience so that others may not spend the time on it that I did!

I was building a Process Builder so that if a field on one object is updated, the corresponding field on another object is updated with the same value.  Another PB operates in the opposite direction to keep these fields in sync.

The (pre-existing) fields were Object1__c.Custom_Type__c and Object2__c.Custom_type__c.

The PB to update Object1 when Object2 is changed kept failing with 'The flow failed to access the value for myVariable_current.Custom_Type__c'.

I tried many ways of ensuring that Custom_Type__c was not blank before checking ISCHANGED(Custom_Type__c), which is one of the most common causes of this error.

However, I then noticed that the error was reporting on field Custom_Type__c, whilst the actual field API name is Custom_type__c.  I amended my formula in PB to Custom_type__c and all is good.

So PB will let you create a formula using a valid API name but with incorrect case, but will then fail at runtime.  Nice!

Hi Mike,

Yes it is :) I suppose that's the benefit of using the field select from PB interface rather than type it for the formulas.
Why dont you comment on with screenshots of error / PB and brief and mark it as best answer?
That will rank up on search and sort of close the 'question'

Hi all, I need to import about 100 new records onto a custom object called organisation using import data wizard. What is the procedure for this please?

Did you check there must be some trigger or process builder running on the organisation object after insert event which creating a associated account record for the newly created organisation record.

There is no standard functionality like this, you must have some trigger or process running behind to create account check that. If you found that then don't de-activate directly to avoid this issue, just confirm with the one who created and check the scope and purpose before taking any further action.

 Sourav,

As the code of the components is not accessible, it is best to raise a ticket with the App provider.

Hi Abhinav,

I don't think you can directly show the link in the report.

But if you get the file id, then URL would look like:

https://yourInstance.salesforce.com/yourFileId

for ex:

 I have a button on my opportunities that links to a visualforce page (rendered as a pdf). I want this button only to work if the opportunity stage is set to a particular value. Is this possible?

Not a VR, those are tied to fields only. But, if you change your button type to Execute JavaScript, and toss in a little script that runs before the redirect, that could work. Basic script flow would be: 

{!REQUIRESCRIPT("/soap/ajax/20.0/connection.js")}
{!REQUIRESCRIPT("/soap/ajax/20.0/apex.js")}

//Grab the status value you're interested in, and I'm blanking on how to do this at the moment

if(status <> "Particular Value"){
alert("Nice try, think again.");
}
else{
window.open('/apex/<whatever your page is>');
}

Alex, you have two ways to go about this (in my opinion):

1. Use CONTAINS
IF(
    CONTAINS(
        "86503:85932:85927", BillingPostalCode
    ), "Apache",
    IF(
        CONTAINS( 
             "85643:85636:85630", BillingPostalCode ), "Cochise",
        IF(
                ..........
)))

2. If the zip code can be logically grouped into number buckets, use this:
IF(
 AND(
    VALUE(BillingPostalCode)>=85920,
    VALUE(BillingPostalCode)<=86556
    ), "Apache",
    IF(
          AND(
               VALUE(BillingPostalCode)>=85602,
               VALUE(BillingPostalCode)<=85671
               ), "Cochise",
          IF(
            ........
)))

Use the one that seems most convenient.
