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

Hello SFTB community,

My org is has something strange happening. Not sure if it is something to do with the Summer '18 release or what. When on any record object, a user goes to "Activities" and clicks "New Task" and Salesforce opens the "New Event" diolog creation view. When a user clicks "New Event" it will also open the "New Event" diolog, as expected. The only way we are able to open a Task is by using the "+" button in the Upper Menu in LEX.

I have not made and changes to an of the global or object buttons. My team is just noticing this today.

Thanks!

I have a requirement to create Account Groups where one Account should be related to multiple accounts vice-versa. So I need to create a junction object with 2 Master detailed relationships related to Accounts object which is not possible as we can only have one masterdetailed relationship related to a single object. But if I go for lookup relationship then the sharing rules are not in-herited from parent for child records. Can anyone help me on how to accomplish this requirement?

Thanks,
Srikanth.

Hi Srikanth,
In order to have a many to many relationship it is not required the relationship be a master detail.
you can still create the many to many relationship using the lookup relationship.
Thats right the sharing rules are not inherited since the relationship is a lookup relationship,if you want to have the sharing on the junction object same as sharing settings on the related you will mostly need Code i.e. Apex Managed Sharing

I am having a hard time creating a criteria based sharing rule on a custom object?  Here is the complete summary -

An account has the OWD - Private and then we later open the Account with other groups of users in SFDC and give them Read/Write Access.

We created a custom object - Account Classification that includes the type, subtype and further more details about the account.  It a child to the account and resides as a part of related list. 

Now, I have group of users that don't want other users to have access to their account and its related list.  So, if the Account Classification has these following fields filled as -

Account Classification Record Type = BMG
Type = Vendor

Then, this particular account and the classifications should not be visible to anyone except the admins and the users of that particular group.

I tried criteria based sharing rule at Account level, but that doesn't work.  I am now trying at Account Classification level, but it doesn't let me change the OWD - controlled by parent or create any sharing rule at child level.  I dont see any option or buttons.  Please help or suggest!

If the child object is a master/detail, then the child security will always follow the parent.
If the child is a standard lookup relationship, then the child can have it's own security model.

Hi guys,

I work in the advertising industry whereby our company works with media agencies. These media agencies work on behalf of brands. For example: the Media Agency is WPP who work on behalf of Coca Cola.

I was wandering what do you reckon is the best way to create a record for both media agencies and brands whereby the media agency is the child and the brands are the parent. So if my managers wanted to see which media agencies worked with Coca Cola, or which brand worked with WPP etc they can? 

In some instances we don't work with a media agency and work directly with a brand, so what would you recommend on how I should go about recording this. Should I create separate objects for Media Agencies and Brands or is there a way to keep them in one place?

Hi Safwan,

Why you do not go for Account-Contact Object because this already maintained the Parent-Child Relationship where Account is Parent and Contact is Child.

Also, Account have self-lookup relationship with Account so you can also use the Account Object itself.

I will suggest using Account and Contact.

Amit

Hi, I created a login flow that simply reminds employees to log their time card. The flow has one screen element, when employee logs in to Saleforce, the message will be displayed to him/ or her. Once he/ or She clicks "Finish", they will be redirected to the timecard visualforce page.
Here is the visualforce page that calling the flow.
User-added image
When Preview the visualforce page from the developer console, it's working as designed; it displays the message first, and once the "finish" button is clicked, it takes me to the timecard page I wanted. 
However, the problem is when I log in as a user with same profile (profile I applied in the login flow), the reminder message is being displayed, but the user is not directed to the timecard page, it’s taking him to the home page screen in Salesforce.

I know I am missing something. Can you please help out? 
Also, I would lilke for the login flow to fire every Monday morning? is it possible to apply time based trigger to a login flow?

Any help will be appreciated.

OK.  I think I figured it out.  in your Flow, create a variable called "LoginFlow_FinishLocation" and set the Data Type to "Text", the Input/Output Type to "Output Only", and the Default Value to "/apex/pse__TCEntry".  

You can find documentation here if you need to get more fancy:

Hi everybody,

I am building a process which the desired action is to launch another process. After i chosee invoking another process as the final action of the process it won't let me choose any of the invocable processes i've created before. I think it might be because the processes are related to different objects... Have someone has an idea of what the problem might be here?
Thanks!!!

Yes, the object the invokable process is created on determnes which regular processes it can be tied to.

See here:

"When you add an object, pay attention to the object you select. Your selection determines which other processes can invoke the one you’re creating. Only processes based on objects that share at least one unique field ID can invoke or be invoked by another process."

Is it possible to have a workflow fire immediately when a date field is updated to today?  Or does this need to be a time based workflow?

Thanks!

I have added a picklist value correctly and it does not show up on the page.  Why would that be?

 When that happens to me, it's almost always because I didn't make it available to that record type. Check that first.

In Setup, navigate to the Record Type settings for the object/record. At the bottom of the screen you'll see "Picklists available for editing." Edit the picklist in question and make sure the value you want is on the right hand side.
