hence I was looking for alternative preparation resources.
Below are the two resources which seemed to be quite helpful.
Suggested by the agile cloud consulting blog(for practicing of skills acquired in trailheads):
Salesforce Study guide - https://na1.salesforce.com/help/pdfs/en/sf.pdf
It would be great if you guys can provide your views on the relevance of this material.
Further, it would be really helpful if you could recommend any study resource which would fulfill the purpose of consolidating my preparation for the admin examination.
You really don't need to sit for the classroom trainings, well surely, unless you can afford them!
I would advise the below:
- The workbooks that you have mentioned are great to get deeper understanding of their respective subjects. I advice that you performa all the exercices in these workbooks.
- The guide: https://na1.salesforce.com/help/pdfs/en/sf.pdf is not the study guide, but in fact the WHOLE Salesforce user guide. It contains around 6000 pages of documentation. You can look at it as the whole Help documentation. It is surely very handy to refer to, but surely not needed as a whole for the Admin exam.
- First thing: Get the official Study Guide: http://certification.salesforce.com/SG_CertifiedAdministrator.pdf
- Get 1 or more free Developer orgs: https://developer.salesforce.com/signup
- Check this Free Udacity course by Salesforce: Intro to Point & Click App Development: https://www.udacity.com/course/intro-to-point-click-app-development--ud162
- Make sure you get EACH concept of the study guide. For example, open the Study Gudie, and randomly select a topic, read it, and try to explain it to yourself. Like, Security: what is a Profile, Role? What is Permission Set? If in doubt, you gotta get back again to this topic to make sure you get it 100%.
- Check out these flash cards:
- Check out this page, it contains some good quizes: http://sfdcstudy.org/adm-201-certification/
- Finally, I left my whole Admin notes here: http://sfdcnotes.com/admin-0-introduction/ They are sorted out as per the Study Guide above. I get back to them when in doubt! You may check them.
- Feel free to PM me. I have tons of private resources!
Let me know if this helps!
OK, thanks...just wanted to be sure.
Subject on Activities is a special "combo" field that acts as both a Text and a Picklist field.
You can modify the fixed list of subjects by going to Setup > Customize > Activities > Task Fields > Subject
Also, if you want to enforce the picklist side of the Subject field and not allow users to enter their own Text subject, you could create a validation rule:
Go to Setup - Build - Customize - Activities - Task Validation Rules
The syntax would look like this:
Subject <> 'Picklist Value 1',
Subject <> 'Picklist Value 2',
Subject <> 'Picklist Value 3',
Subject <> 'Picklist Value 4',
Subject <> 'Picklist Value 5'
Let me know if you have any questions and I can help walk you through it.

I need a listing of which users are "Salesforce" versus which are "Salesforce Platform".
I've tried a custom field on the user object: TEXT(Profile.UserType)
but that only returns the following values: CsnOnly; Guest; Standard
and based upon the counts the "Standard" includes both my Salesforce and my Salesforce Platform users.
How can I break that out separately so I know which users hold which license ?
For example, we have a process that updates related objects when a record is updated. There were two versions of this process. The first iteration of this process was titled "Update IA When Receipt Updates" and the second was changed to "Update IA When Shipment Status Updates".
There is only a single flow within this process.
We got an error email with the subject: Error Occurred During Flow "Update_IA_When_Receipt_Updates" (the old name) even though that version is Inactive. (The error itself appears to be a valid error for the Active flow and is not the focus of my question.)
Has anyone come across anything like this before? I would be happy to provide more information if necessary, just not even sure where to start.
Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated!
I have a process builder that creates a new contact record every time i create a new user record - works great
I need to be able to update the contact record every time I update the user record. I do not want to use APEX to accomplish this if I can avoid it. I tried using process builder but the lookup from the contact to the user record is a connectiong from contact to user and not the other way around.
Has anyone accomplished this and if so how?
