Tricky question
Does anyone else have trouble picking one answer? They are all reasonable measures, so which one is not a 'Salesforce best practice'?

Hi Anya,

The Correct Option is C. User should reset their password in every 90 Days OR less. Other 3 Options are looking correct to Me. Password Lenth must be 8-10 Chars and must contain mixtures of alphanumeric and must not reuse old Password for Security Reason.

So, The option left is C.

I have created a formula based on a picklist value but it only works for the "Hot" rating. I want it to show dynamite sticks based on the rating. 0 dynamite sticks if the rating field (the one with the picklist) is blank, 1 for mild, 2 for medium three for hot. 

It shows 3 dynamite sticks if the rating is hot, but it doesn't show any for mild or medium. What am I missing? 

Here's the formula:   
IF( 
ISPICKVAL(Rating,"Hot"), 
IMAGE("/servlet/servlet.FileDownload?file=01546000000vUFC", "*", 16, 16) & " " & IMAGE("/servlet/servlet.FileDownload?file=01546000000vUFC", "*", 16, 16) & " " & IMAGE("/servlet/servlet.FileDownload?file=01546000000vUFC", "*", 16, 16), 

IF(ISPICKVAL(Rating, "Medium"), 
IMAGE("/servlet/servlet.FileDownload?file=01546000000vUFC", "*", 16, 16) & " " & IMAGE("/servlet/servlet.FileDownload?file=01546000000vUFC", "*", 16, 16), 

IF(ISPICKVAL(Rating, "Mild"), 
IMAGE("/servlet/servlet.FileDownload?file=01546000000vUEx", "*", 16, 16),null)))

Good news is that I can do it! And I did.

I ended up turning it into a case formula. I figured out that the error was that I was referring to the text of the pick list instead of the API name. Once I switched the formula to refer to the API name it worked. :)

I felt a little silly about making such a simple error. But happy to have figured it out. My next step is to upload a picture of a chili pepper and have it show images o the chili pepper.

Here's the formula I used:  
CASE( 

Rating, 

"Hot", IMAGE("/servlet/servlet.FileDownload?file=01546000000vUFC", "*", 16, 16) & " " & IMAGE("/servlet/servlet.FileDownload?file=01546000000vUFC", "*", 16, 16) & " " & IMAGE("/servlet/servlet.FileDownload?file=01546000000vUFC", "*", 16, 16), 

"Warm", IMAGE("/servlet/servlet.FileDownload?file=01546000000vUFC", "*", 16, 16) & " " & IMAGE("/servlet/servlet.FileDownload?file=01546000000vUFC", "*", 16, 16), 

"Cold", IMAGE("/servlet/servlet.FileDownload?file=01546000000vUFC", "*", 16, 16), 

"Not Spicy" 
)
Hooray,

I am creating views for this mess with all of the profiles which seems to work great at inline editing and seeing which profiles have what permissions however there isnt an option to share these with my admin team. Am I missing something or is this a limitation on those list views?

Disregard - I see that those list views are already shared with my team automatically!!!

We are trying to deploy a Change Set of our Permission Sets AND Profiles from an unaffected Sandbox to Production after the 5/17/19 issue. The permission sets went over fine but the profile Object Settings did not. Can someone confirm with how to deploy a change set for entire Profiles (e.g. Assigned Apps, Object Settings, System Settings, etc. in the profile)?

Hi Brent, here is an excerpt from Salesforce:

"It's not possible to upload a change set containing only profiles so you'll need to make sure that a component is also included. Profiles are not officially supported as individual components in change sets as per the Components Available in Change Sets documentation."

If you're adding an object to a change set, you can include the profile permissions for that object but not the profile itself.

Hope this makes sense.

Hi Julian,

If you are referring to the trailhead in some cases I have ran into issues with this also. I would suggest to search the "Get Started with Salesforce Platform" on youtube just to ensure you completed the steps accurately and then re-check the trailhead. 
 

Regards,
J

Not sure what platform is best, what does everyone recomend - no SF staff please - I need a contact manager to track diffifult policy issues and which contacts work in that area - it would require I build out objects for the different policy issues so that I can link them with different campaigns, contact, accounts, and log emails/calls/and upload white papers and other things. I was thinking lightning, but it looks like I need to pay for enterprise and lightning because I'm not a company, just a single person wanting to track contacts. What's everyone's recommendation for best SF product to do this? What'll get me closest to what I want for lowest price?

Hi all, 

I have a process in place that is working well to create custom object record "Onboarding".  

The Name is populated upon creation with the Account associated to it and I would like to append it with the auto generated "Onboarding number". 

I know I can't do this upon creation because the number hasn't generated yet, so I am trying to do a field update. I didn't think I could append a field name in Workflow, so I am using Process builder, but am open to either idea.
 

I've tried a few and keep getting syntax errors, but not sure what I'm doing wrong.
[Onboarding__c].Account_Name__c  "," [Onboarding__c].Onboarding_Number__c 
Your changes are saved, but you can't activate this process until you resolve the following errors.
The formula expression is invalid: Syntax error. Found 'Onboarding.Account_Name__c'

[Onboarding__c].Name ","[Onboarding__c].Onboarding_Number__c 

The formula expression is invalid: Syntax error. Found 'Onboarding.Name'

Try this = 
[Onboarding__c].Name + "," + [Onboarding__c].Onboarding_Number__c
