We created a custom field on the Account to capture the "Account Manager" name.  This is a lookup field to the User record.
We are trying to display that field on the Community, however, since the user is not a community member, it will not show.
We created a new custom field as a formula (text) field.  But when we view this on the Community, it displays the ID, not the name.  We tried using TEXT(Account_Manager__c) but we get a syntax error that says "Error: Incorrect parameter type for function 'TEXT()'. Expected Number, Date, DateTime, Picklist, received Lookup(User)" so I guess we cannot use this with our lookup field.

I have also tried using the Account_Manager__r.Full_Name__c field (the second option in the screen shot, then Full Name, but nothing displays.
Any thoughts on what we can try or if this can even be done?
Thanks in advance!

Now the key thing to understand here is - The Lookup Flow Component is NOT a look-up component that provides a list of records in a given object for you to choose. NOPE.

Instead, it's a component that lets you add Lookup Fields defined on objects to be made available on your Flow Screens exactly as it would look like when you are creating a new record in that object. This means that the component expects you to specify the API Name of the Object and the API Name of the Lookup Field that you want to display.

Make sense?

So in other words, if you want to display a list of products, you need to figure out an object in Salesforce that has an OOTB (out of the box) Lookup or Master-Detail Relationship to the Product object. Then specify the API Name of the object and the field.

For example, you can use the Opportunity Product object. It has out of box Lookup Field to Product2.

So your values would be:
  1. Field API Name: Product2Id
  2. Object API Name: OpportunityLineItem

Roles allow sharing with all users of a particular role in the hierarchy (and those above that role, if hierarchy sharing is enabled for the object). Roles and Internal Subordinates shares records not only with the role (and possibly their superiors), but also with any role directly or indirectly it.,below%20them%20in%20the%20hierarchy.&text=Each%20role%20in%20the%20hierarchy,or%20group%20of%20users%20needs.

Oh ok, did you create a second page layout as I previously mentioned (step 3)? If so:

1) In Setup Group Layouts > click on Page Layout Assignment > click on Edit Assignment

2) Click on the Post record type to highlight the page layout assignment for all profiles > select the appropriate page layout in the dropdown (the one with that has the Post action before Question) > click Save

3) Wait 20-30 seconds and test

It should be "lightning__AppPage" and not "lightning_AppPage". It should use a double underscore.

Hi George,

You cannot use the MailingAddress field. That is a special field. Replace that with the Street:

Contact__r.MailingStreet  + BR() + 
 Contact__r.MailingCity  + ", "+ 
 Contact__r.MailingState  +" " + 
 Contact__r.MailingPostalCode  + BR() +

I can't get passed challenge 6 in the Business Administration Specialist superbadge. 

Here is the error:  Challenge Not yet complete... here's what's wrong: 
Couldn't find the necessary multiple-choice post.

The requirement was "Within the collaboration space, create a multiple-choice post gauging the team’s familiarity with residential market products. Use the question "Which product are you most comfortable selling?" with the options Home Array, Home Battery, Home Starter Kit, and Home Starter Kit Deluxe." The only thing I can think of is a poll? But this isn't multiple choice. Am I missing something obvious??

Is it possible to change a user from salesforce back to chatter free on the licence? I know it can be done the other way round.... Help please

I can only suggest you to deactivate the Salesforce User & then activate the User with Chatter Free User license because the Salesforce license type Users can only be Upgraded but not degraded which is reverse for Chatter free license User.

Hope it helps you.
