Hello everyone! I am not sure where to ask this. Every time I complete a challenge on trailhead it gives me an error saying that my Report does not contain a certain field, but my report DOES contain that field. Does this make sense? Is this a common issue and how can I fix it? I appreciate any advice or support! Thank you :) More

Our whole point in us moving to Salesforce (and I'm sure others as well) is to have everything in one system. We have zero interest in managing our meetings and appointments in an outside system, even Google. Please vote this up so they put this in Lightning. Switching back to Classic to schedule meetings or Resources is ridiculous. More

Hi All - I am trying to put some reports together for 2018/2019 budgets but haven't been successful. Any help at all would be much appreciated! #1 - I was playing around with our win/loss ratio and am showing that our renewal rate is 33% however, an audit we went through recently shows our renewal rate as 70%. I know I must be doing something wrong with either the formula or report - any pointers on how to do this correctly? #2 - I would like to either add a field to our accounts or at least be able to calculate within a report what the average customer is worth to us per year. I've found some information on roll-up summaries potentially helping with this but none that seemed promising. #3 - Also - any ideas on how I could calculate the number of revenue coming from existing customers vs. new? Thank you in advance! More
