I'm having a problem with my new Windows 10 laptop - the Data Loader has such small login screens that I can't even login!  I've tried adjusting the normal microsoft settings to no avail.  Looking for guidance on what settings I could possibly reset to adjust the screen size.

Thank you for those who gave assistance.  This was a Windows issue.  I was able to resolve by making these changes in display settings, and then restarting my laptop.

Hi Chris,

Actually, Yes you can add custom object on task.
What you have to do is (in Lightning) :

Setup --> Object Manager --> Click on your custom Object --> On details, click on Edit --> In 'Optional Features' Section, Check 'Allow Activities'

with Lightning, it take some time, but you will se your custom object on the 'Related To' Field.

And unfortunatly you can't remove standard object on the related to list.

Don't hesitate if you have any other question,

Hi. I've been trying to install Lightning for Outlook with Outlook 2016 (365 Enterprise). Everything was going fine until I clicked on the Saleforce View cloud icon on the Outlook tool bar. As the installation instructions noted, I was prompted to log in to my account. When I did, I received a generic error message that said "We encountered a problem. For help, contact your administrator." I've not been able to resolve this. Can anyone provide insights, let me know what the problem might be, or even offer up a solution? Thanks!

I solved this by going to my Outlook Web mail and clicking on an email from there to log in to Salesforce for the first time instead of logging in from the desktop for the first time. Then when I reopened Outlook Desktop and clicked on View icon the system recognized me as already logged in.

Hi Toni,

In my point of view, Classic will exist eventhough Lightning has been added with new features till the recent Dreamforce. Salesforce also tells that "Saying Hello to Lightning Experience Doesn’t Mean Saying Goodbye to Salesforce Classic".

But,the new Release Notes are now making the point that certain new features will be "available in Lightning Experience only", also we had seen that almost all Salesforce product presentations have been in the Lightning Experience since Dreamforce. So for atleast the coming two or three years, Classic will be there, as now. But we cant predict about the future business, since trends and trendsetters in Cloud are changing day by day.

Have a nice day.
Regards,
Alsinan

Question,

We just started using the Salesforce/Outlook integration a few weeks ago. However we ran into our first issue today. We have one person using a mac, the rest of us are on pc's, and today when she went to log an email on send the button would not work. The contact was pulling in, we just couldn't click the button. 

Has anyone else had any issues with this? With it being the only Mac in our office, it's hard to trouble shoot what's going on.

I thought I had the latest version too! I was banging my head because I was like "But my users have the latest version. There has to be a different solution."

When I talked to SF support, they told me to literally follow these steps. I figured I had nothing to lose and tried the steps they offered:

1. Open any Office 365 Product.
2. Choose Help at the top.
3. Click on Check for Updates. 
4. Select Manually check.
5. Check off the "Join the Office Insider program to get early access to new releases"
6. Select Office Insider Fast for the picklist value under "Choose how you get insider builds" field.
7. Click on Check for Updates.
8. After doing that, I found out I was wrong. There were more updates. I clicked to update all and it worked. 

If you follow these exact steps and it still doesn't work then you might need to talk to your office 365 administrator to push the 16.24 through Insider to everyone.

I am working on a Java program to upload contacta records using Salesforce upsert bulk api.
In guide book it is said that we can use JobInfo.setExternalIdFieldName() to do this.
From my opinion, it should be used for the designation of Contact's external ID field.
But at the same time, we need to designate the external ID fieldpf referenced Account record.My question is how to do it.

This is the sample csv file for Contact upsert usage.
LastName,Account.No__c,ExternalID__c
ContactNO0000003,AccountNO0000003,ContactNO0000003
ContactNO0000004,AccountNO0000004,ContactNO0000004

For reference, the mapping file of a success dataloader upsert operation is as following.
ExternalID__c=ExternalID__c
LastName=LastName
Account.No__c=Account\:No__c

Appreciate for any advice or hint from you.

I got the answer. In program we only need to designate the external id of the target object.
In this case, it should be.
job.setExternalIdFieldName("ExternalID__c");
Just leave the csv header as "Account.No__c", then system will automatically link the correct account record to the contact. 
Sorry for confusing you.

We have 2 users with Salesforce for Outlook (Outlook 365 on Windows 10) which their sidebar is appearing on the left side of Outlook or floats completely outside of the Outlook application and "floats." Has anybody else had this issue? We are on the newest version of SFO (3.4.3).

Thank you!

I just spoke with Salesforce Support and here is the fix (https://help.salesforce.com/articleView?id=000272670&language=en_US&type=1)(https://help.salesforce.com/articleView?id=000272670&language=en_US&type= (https://help.salesforce.com/articleView?id=000272670&language=en_US&type=1)).  I thought I'd leave this question up so it shows in Google results.

I would like to manage approval requests from the Salesforce Chatter app for Windows 10. I receive the approval requests in the notifications, but I get a record not found error when I click on the notification. Should that notification bring me to the record from which the request for approval was generated?
Best Answer chosen by Bhavin (salesforce.com)

Hi Jordy,

Here are some of the possibilities why you are receiving the error:
-The record associated to the approval has been deleted
-The approval request has been recalled
-Approval step has been approved or rejected.

When clicking on the notification, it should take you to the approval step record and not the record that was submitted for approval.

I hope this answers your query.
