Hi Ramesh,

Topic and FeedItem linked to each other through TopicAssignment object. So if you want to get topic name, then you need to query TopicAssignment object with EntityID where EntityID is the FeedItem Id you are getting in trigger. Then you can query Topic object to get topic name. Its not that easy to get topic name as well as feed item together.  But its possible if you know apex coding.

Using Lightning for Outlook and email attachments are not being added to activity history even though the emails are being added.  The add attachments checkbox is checked.  I see the message boxes in the lightning for outlook side panel saying that the email is attached.  I also see one for adding attachments but the adding attachment message box is gray, not green.

On the 'Send an Email' task page, you can fill in the 'Additional To:' field. When I enter a non-existing email address (e.g. and send out the email, I don't receive any failure delivery status notification email in SF. When I send a mail to that mail address via outlook, I do receive this failure email in outlook. 

Is there any way to receive these failure notifications in SF as well, as we definitely need to be informed on these failed deliveries!

Hi Ruben,
Did you check your bounce administration (Setup > Email Administration > Deliverability)? Check if you selected the "Return bounced emails to sender" (see screenshot). In addition, did you receive a bounce email in you email client (e.g. Google Inbox)?

We have users that were able to go to the Activity Section of a Case and hit the SEND EMAIL button this morning and attach files to the email before they sent it.  Now suddenly they are getting Insufficient Privileges when they attempt to attach a file to an outgoing email.  I have checked everything and nothing has changed and not everyone is being impacted. Any ideas?

Hmmm, that sounds strange. Have you tried logging in as these users to reproduce the issue? Are you able to try changing their profile temporarily to see if that is causing the issue? Could it possibly be a browser issue? I'd try having them use a different browser. Another thing to check could be Storage Usage - is your File Storage full? If none of these shed any light, it might be worth opening a case with Salesforce support.

I've built an alert for opps over 5k but want to add a qualifier of closed won 'greater than or equal to ' today but it won't let me use the word "today" - does anyone know the format I should use?
Best Answer chosen by Kris Cote

We can't see your screenshot but normally you should have a screen which looks like this:

Except the Value "Accepted" which has to be your own value ^^

Don't forget to click on "Use this formula" for the third rows.

Let me know if it's ok

Each time after updating percentage field(rule criteria is >50%) in Opportunity record 'Ritz', I want to send time dependent email after 30 minutes. How can I achieve this efficiently?
Best Answer chosen by Ed ( 
Sai Rakesh PuliSai Rakesh Puli
@Anup Create a Time dependent workflow on Opportunity Object. Create a new formula field on Opportunity object that calculates 30 mins as salesforce doesnot support Hours and day rather than minutes

New Formula field: Opp Email Calc
IF(Opportunity.Percentage__c  >  50 , NOW()-0.02073, Null). Use this field in time based worflow and select

1 Hours After Opportunity: Opp Email Calc. This will help in running for 30 mins instead of  1 hour

Few steps::
1.Select the Object as Opportunity and add the desired Rule name /Description 
2.Picking the right Evaluation criteria from Below
created, and every time it's edited
created, and any time it's edited to subsequently meet criteria
3.Run this rule when criteria is met. Give the field name with >50 percent
4.Click save
5.In Time dependent workflow Actions

I am trying to get case notification emails to fire if a case has been assigned to a specific queue. I have the below done but the email is still not firing.

Case assignment rules and workflow rules assign specific cases to queue
Case email template is selected
Queue (send email to members checkbox is checked and members are specified)

I am hoping someone may be able to call out what I am missing here.

Is this in Production or are you testing it out in a sandbox.  If it s a sandbox, it could be a few things

1.  In the sandbox, by default users email addresses are changed to prevent spamming.  You would need to ensure the users that are part of the queue do not have the masked address.
2.  I would check that the email deliverability is not turned off for the sandbpx.  You can check this by navigating to
Setup -> Email Administration -> Deliverability     You want to make sure this is set to all email

Hi all,

I have an email template (Type: Text) which I want to use in a workflow email alert. The idea is to send an email to only two users when the case is assigned to a queue (there are six users in the queue) with criteria: Priority equals High.

I am not sure which merge field to use to display the name of the recipient.

I tried with 
"Hi {!Receiving_User.FirstName},"
"Hi {!Target_User.FirstName},"
fields, but nothing is working. I am getting only "Hi ," in the email.
I am testing this in a sandbox.
Does anyone have an idea what could be the problem and is there any solution for this at all?

Thanks for the clarification. I was definitely misunderstanding the requirements.

It looks like your desired outcome isn't possible "The {!Receiving_User.field_name} and {!Sending_User.field_name} merge fields work only for mass email and list email"

I imagine there are a few ways to workaround this (such as an email to each individual user with the name value included in each body), but none of them seem ideal.

Sometimes the auto-save happens at a bad time and there is not a way to go back if you make a change you don't want to keep.

At this time, you cannot turn off the autosave functionality.  However, depending on the block that you are making changes, you can click the Control + Z (Command + Z on Mac OS) which will undo your recent actions.

We are looking to provide more complete undo functionality in a future roadmap.

When sending an email from salesforce we can't tell if the email has bounced back or not. Is there anyway of finding out unless we send it from Outlook instead?

one option is you can generate Email Log files to identify the status of an email delivery
