I'm working in step 7 of the Lightning Experience Reports & Dashboard and this is the error I'm getting.

Apparently I'm not giving the correct access to the folder. 

"Make the folder viewable by all internal users and make Report and Dashboard Administrators managers of the folder."

Here's what I have:

Hi Akshay,

All you need is a Contact record. From there, select “Enable Customer User” or “Enable Partner User” to create an external user.

Upon clicking, you are taken to the user record page. If you try this out on your org, you’ll notice that the User License and Profile drop-downs are populated with external licenses and their corresponding profiles.

Would someone be able to offer assistance with what I am supposed to do for the hands-on challenge for the 
Make the Move to Lightning Experience / Lightning Alternatives to JavaScript Buttons / Discover Lightning Actions unit? Do you have to write your own code? All of the previous units had me copy and paste code in a specific location in an already-existing string, but with this challenge, it simply says to install a package (which I did) and add appropriate interfaces to the "quickContact" component. I have no idea where I would find that component or appropriate interfaces to add to it. Am I just way over my head here? Thank you!

Hi Michelle,

The Lightning Component that is installed in the package is not set to be visible/used by an action.
To do this, you need to open the Dev Console, navigate to quickcontact.cmp and insert the following highlighted in the screenshot before saving:

These do two things:

1. force:lightningQuickAction
Adds the standard header as shown below:
(you can use force:lightningQuickActionWithoutHeader and the highlight part below will not show)

2. force:hasRecordId
This provides record context.

Once you implement the piece of code and create the Action, you'll notice that the component has no place to input an Account for the Contact. force:hasRecordId ensures that the Lightning Component knows to associate the Contact to the Account that we were viewing when selecting the Action.

I keep getting the message "We can't find a Quick Text called 'Data sheet needed’ with the correct values." I have quick text name as "Data sheet needed", message as "Please send a data sheet", category as "None"(ends up being blank), and channel as "Task".  I created the task from the case I created and I am seeing it there with the proper values.  I am at wits end, anyone else getting this error?

@Matthias Bullmahn,
The quick text name should be "Datasheet needed" not Data sheet needed. 
Thank you

Dear Fellow Trailblazers,

Need your help figuring out if this is even possible. And if it's possible, then how exactly can we implement it:

We want to be able to create Cases in SalesForce from a 3d party site using JavaScript. Presumably, make an Ajax call to REST endpoint.

We went through REST API docs ( but are still confused if we need to authenticate, or get the token, and if it's even possible to do with JavaScript, or we have to invoke Node's jsforce objects.

Please advise.
Thank you!

As part of my onboarding process for new employees, they have to complete the basic SFDC CRM Trailhead. One of my users has the exercises in a different language then the training. How do I fix the language preference for the exercises?

I have defined 4 attributes. how can I concatenate four attributes to one attribute?

<aura:attribute name='pword1' type='string'/>
    <aura:attribute name='pword2' type='string'/>
    <aura:attribute name='pword3' type='string'/>
    <aura:attribute name='pword4' type='string'/>
    <aura:attribute name='pword' type='string'/>
pword should be taken as pwrd ='pwrd1'+'pwrd2'+'pwrd3'+'pwrd4'

So that means now you have 4 input fields?
cmp.get("v.pword1") + cmp.get("v.pword2") + cmp.get("v.pword3") + cmp.get("v.pword4")

And can you print pinSet value in controller js, so as to make sure its having the appended value?
And your 4 fields are capturing UI values.

Am I totally missing somehting here or what? I'm trying to complete the "Prepare for Your Salesforce Administrator Credential" and there are Tasks included in the mix but I don't know what to do with them or how to complete them! I'm following it but unlike the other steps to ear badges or read a document, there's no link on these. 

In the image you will see 2 tasks, a module and a project.  The Module and the Project have a blue link but the tasks don't. What do I do??
