Trailhead of the Day

Trailhead of the Day

Whether you are just getting started or an experienced user, Trailhead is the best tool to use for learning about Salesforce. Trailhead consists of modules, which are broken up into units. To finish a unit, you must complete the quiz or challenge. Quizzes are multiple choice, and challenges test your skills by allowing you to work within a development org. Once you complete the unit, you get points.  Once you complete the module, you receive a badge. The best part about Trailhead is that it's a game! You want to receive as many as you can to move up in the ranks.

Modules are also coordinated into Trails. Each trail is a group of modules that cover a certain topic. Here are some Trails I recommend for starting out in Salesforce:



This trail is the absolute basics starting with how to add a contact and account. If you haven't ever been in Salesforce, this Trail is essential for you.



Lighting is the future, and the future is now! Take time to learn the basics on selling with Lighting so that your sales reps can start making money!



Every Admin should complete this trail. This trail covers a little bit of everything including Salesforce Platform Basics, Data Modeling, Data Management, Customizations, and Reports & Dashboards.




As this blog evolves, I will start to pick a "Trailhead of the Day." I look forward to sharing my favorite Modules and Trails with you.

Comment below your favorite Modules and Trails. I would love to hear from you!

Lighting Components

Learning Lightning Components Well, I am late to the game, but I am now learning lightning components for our Salesforce Org.    --> Please, leave comments on any advice to help with directions on learning more! <-- div="">

Truth is, there is a huge change from working in Salesforce Classic to Lighting. Apex and Visualforce components are entirely different. But, it does seem that Lightning Components are much easier. 
Right now, I am focusing on Salesforce Trailhead to learn more about Lightning Components. Here is the trail I am currently working on.

Data Migration Tools

Data Migration Tools My Top Five Migration Tools
How do you prepare for data migrations? My preparation always starts with a lot of coffee and acknowledgement for long nights. I am currently in the midst of migrating from our Force.com platform to the Salesforce Enterprise Org. We have so much data that has to be migrated, and I am prepared for some long hours (with fresh brewed coffee). But with the right tools, this might not be as bad as it has always sound.

For the longest time, I have always heard migrating data is a headache. And some of this is true, migrating data is a lot of work. Preparation and execution on mapping and vision are essential. However, there are so many great tools out there now in the year 2017 that really the headache of migrating data really isn't that bad.

Lucky for you, I have actually downloaded the following tools and migrated with each tool, to create a list of my favorite migration tools.

Month Two: Setting Up A New Org

Steps To Setting Up A New Org Month Two is finally in the books. And I must say, we are moving along with great speed. To give a recap of month one, we dropped Force.com, and purchased Salesforce Enterprise Org with Pardot. Now, we still have the agents running full speed in the Force.com platform and plan to transition them to the Salesforce Enterprise org very soon. Which brings me to month two- setting the ground work for the new org.
Setting up a new org takes a lot of time and planning. Here are the steps I've taken so far to create our new org.
