In trailhead while practicing CI using Travis CI CLI in the 
Continuous Integration Using Salesforce DX - Wire It All Together Unit - https://trailhead.salesforce.com/content/learn/modules/sfdx_travis_ci/sfdx_travis_ci_wire_it

Getting the following error while trying to login to GitHub using the command travis login --org 

Error:
We need your GitHub login to identify you.
This information will not be sent to Travis CI, only to api.github.com.
The password will not be displayed.

Try running with --github-token or --auto if you don't want to enter your password anyway.

Username: myusername
Password for myusername: *************
Not Found
for a full error report, run travis report

Entered my GitHub username and password correctly, still can't log in. Any ideas how to resolve this?

Thanks.

Was able to figure it out after spending several hours. 

You will need to create a new personal access token in GitHub here: https://github.com/settings/tokens

Then instead of using your GitHub password, copy and paste the new token and enter the following command instead at the command prompt:

travis login --github-token YOURTOKENHERE

Successfully logged in as username!

Good luck. Hope this helps someone.

Thanks Noah, it's not in page layouts under related for Account. I feel like my orgs don't have CPQ now...I used to have a CPQ app to select.

Hi friendly forces,

I was working on a hand-ons challenges to install Dashboard Pal package. But I was stopped by the below message when I tried to get it from AppExchange. How to do enable Manage Billing permission myself? As obliously "Admin" does exist.



"We found at least one Salesforce account linked to your Trailblazer.me profile, but you don't have permission to install packages. Ask your admin to assign you the Manage Billing permission in the org where you want to install the package. You can also sign up for a free trial of Salesforce."

Hi Thomas,

Please use a new trailhead playground org for installing the package. Please follow the below steps for installing the package/App into your playground org.

1. The package id for Dashboard Pal is 04t3Y0000018TkG
2. Once launch the playground org, it navigates to the playground starter app page. If you don't see the playground starter app. Please click the App Launcher(9 dots on the left side of the page) and then click view all. here you can search the playground starter app.

3.Click the playground starter app and then click the install package tab. here you can paste the package id. Now you are able to install the package in playground org.

I am on the last step of the challenge and am getting this error:
User-added image

The filter is set up like this:
User-added image
And I have confirmed that the options display as they should:
User-added image

And when I select one of the options in the filters the reports go from this:
User-added image
to this:
User-added image

I'm at a loss as to what reports on my dashboard are not using the Account Name filter as all the reports on the dashboard "update" when I select one of the Accounts in the filter, and back when I select All.

Any help?

Yes. I completed this yesterday and ran into the same issue ... I forgot to add the filter to my components. :)

When you add a dashboard filter you also need to specify which field it should apply to for each component. For example, if you filter on account name as for this superbadge, some components may have multiple references to an account name (ex: Opportunity Account Name, Parent Account Name, Partner Account Name, etc.). When this happens you need to specify which field you want the filter to apply to. 

If you click on EDIT on the dashboard you should now see a small funnel at the bottom of each component. Just make sure they all point to Account Name and it should work.

I was trying to set up Lightning Login on my personal developer account.  I went in to the dev account and disconnected the Salesforce Authenticator from my account. I then deleted the account in the authenticator on my mobile device.  I then clicked the link enroll next to the lightning login on my user detail page.  I was asked to login to my dev org again, but now it keeps asking me for the verification code.  I can't get the verification code because the authenticator is disconnected. How am I going to get back into my developer account? This is bad, this is really bad because so much is in this developer account. Anybody have any ideas how I can get the verification code?

I was able to resolve my locked out problem on my developer org.  I had remembered that I had a second user account in this dev org and after resetting the password on the second account, I was able to log in.  Once I logged in, I reset the profile on my primary account to not require two-factor authentication.  That allowed me to log back in with the primary account and have my verification come via text message.  If I would not have had the second log in with Administrator level access I would have probably lost everything in this org.  

Two valuable lessons here:  
  1. Always create a second administrator account on your dev org as a backup login.
  2. Use a newly created, secondary developer org to test security features as Geoffrey Flynn recommends.

In the Admin Beginner>Data Modeling >Understand Custom & Standard Objects module it instructs me to:
  1. Scroll to the bottom of this page.
  2. Click the arrow next to Launch and select Create a Trailhead Playground. Don’t skip this step! You need to use a fresh and clean Trailhead Playground for this module.
  3. Once your playground is created (it takes a minute!), press Launch.
  4. Click the gear icon  at the top of the page and launch setup.
  5. Click the Object Manager tab...
But when I click Launch next to Create a Trailhead Playground it does not create a fresh new Playground.  Instead I see the same Playground populated with the data from the previous Platform Basics module and I'm not able to follow the instructions in step 3 and following.
What am I doing wrong?
Thanks a lot!

Hi Trailblazers,

I'm signed up to take my Marketing Cloud Admin Certification test next week. I'll complete the trail needed within the next few days. Then I'm planning to re-study the learning objectives and test questions at the end of each unit thoroughly leading up to the test. Beyond this, I'm wondering if there are methods of study this community recommends? It's been awhile since I've taken an exam, what to speak of being nervous about it! Also want to mention that the SF org I currently work in does not have marketing cloud, so I'm unable to get hands on training.

I'm also curious if there are any certified Marketing Cloud Admin test takers out there who can recommend study techniques. This is not an attmept to cheat (if that's even possible?); I want to pass this honestly otherwise I won't know what I'm doing. Rather, it's an attempt to see if there's a systematic way of how the test works in relation to the study materials like Trailhead. Knowing this I'd feel confident about this certification and others I may choose to take.

Any response is appreciated! Thank you!

Daniel

Hi, I would like to make a chart like bellow (grouping by month to be able to show evolution between years). Anyone to help me ?

This is possible wherever you have two fields to store the date. This is because one of the fields needs to form the chart's X axis and the other can form its bar groupings.

If you're trying to do this with a field like Lead Created Date or Opportunity Close Date, then the standard leads and opportunities report types already give you two date fields to use. You'd then just need to group them in different ways using the Group Dates By function as below:

User-added image

If you're not lucky enough to be given these separate fields by default in your report, you can create an additional formula field on the object in question to copy the date you need - that will then give you the same date across two fields, and you can group them as above.

Hope that helps.
