Managing documents in Salesforce - what to do with Transcripts? We use the targetx managed package for the admissions process including the application and review/reading process. Documents (transcripts, essay, resume, recommendations, citizenship verification, etc) are uploaded into Salesforce various Salesforce objects (contact, application, enrollment history, etc). The university (Berry College) is working toward Salesforce as the main system of record and with the goal of becoming a connected campus. Over the next three years we will be onboarding Advancement, Student Success, and various other departments. We want to find a solution for documents that will scale well as we continue to build out our Salesforce org. Berry also currently uses Feith Document Database for file document storage and retention. The question is what do you do about long term document retention and storage? We have to maintain transcripts for a certain amount of years and other university staff (not on salesforce) need to access the documents. What are other universities doing to manage documents? We are working on developing a possible solution. We would like to integrate with Feith, and our idea is to create a link or quick action button in Salesforce that would allow users to upload a document into Feith and then Feith would store the document and send the document to Salesforce through an API connection. We know we will likely need a middleware product. We currently have Informatica and are also considering Jitterbit. Does this sound feasible? Have other universities solved the document retention issue? More

Technical Question: I can't find documentation anywhere. Here we go: Is there an "Announcement" Feature; and if so, where is the documentation? Let me explain: I'm pretty sure that I saw a demo, read a release or something that there is now an announcement feature built into the Setup Menu. This is a Pop-Up message delivered on the page; NOT the Chatter Announcement feature. It displays based on "role,profile, group" and you can set a number of times to display, etc. Anyone know what I'm talking about, or do I need to schedule an appointment with my Doctor? :-) @Iman's Webinars You're my favorite Salesforce Wizard. Is this a real thing? More
