Who could we contact in Salesforce to ask about/explore possible partnership around the launch of our forthcoming consumer campaigning app for products that are made without modern slavery? As a small nonprofit, we can reach just a few hundred people. 
How might we discuss an endorsement or help with promoting slavefreetrade's revolutionary cause app?

Hi Brian - I'll be in touch momentarily.

I would like to check a box if an open activity is present on a record. This would be used to flag in a List View that there is an open activity.

It would also be good for then uncheck the box once the tasks has been completed.

I suspect there's some fancy formula I can put into Process Builder?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Kieron

You can achieve this by using the process builder individually on Task and Events object. I am poting how to on Task Object

Created a new field on Account called "Open Tasks" of type checkbox (The reason is I want to separate open Events by creating Open events checkbox an then use these two in list views)

I've loaded Snaggit video files in Content in our Library, they're stored as mp4 format.  They're short and load in seconds and launch fine from my Windows desktop but they do not view when in Safari or Chrome on my iPad.

This is pretty important as most of our sales team now carry iPads. Any idea of what might be happening?

This is not a Salesforce issue, its an Apple issue.

Hi Everyone, 

I'm using a Salesforce flow to find a collection of records, sum together a field on those records of the collection and update a separate record with the sum of the fields from the collection. 

The problem is, I can't get it to work!  

Here's a picture of the elements of my flow:
User-added image
The first step has a fast lookup trying to find all of the records matching some criteria. Within the lookup I have the records saved to a Collection Variable.

In the next step I loop through the collection variable and assign the current value to a loop variable.

In the assignment step, I take the loop variable and use the "add" operator to assign the variable from the loop into a variable.

The last step uses the variable from the third step to update the record. 

I can't seem to get this to work correctly, any thoughts?

Lol.  Looks like your Loop.... isn't looping!
After you're "Loop" element, you have the "Next Element" arrow going to the the Assignment.  But then you need to drag an arrow BACK to the Loop (from the Assignments box), so that it can complete the.... well... "Loop".  Once you've done this, you then drag an arrow from the Loop out to the "Record Update" box, which is the thing that needs to happen only after the loop is done.

Give it a try - I hope this helps!

I am assisting a customer in evaluating a piece of middleware to connect Xero to Salesforce. I am aware of a number of options:
  • Breadwinner
  • One Saas
  • Zapier
  • Carry The One
  • Workato
...amongst others. 

Does anyone have any experience in integrating any of these and can provide any pros and cons that they have found through real-life experience?

Thank you in advance!

dude, there is WAY more to being a Role Model than collecting Trailhead Badges, just read though some of the solutions he's posted.

I upload/import a csv and I have mapped a field to a column with blank values. However, Salesforce does not update that field with blanks in the list object.

Any idea?

You n​eed to do a slight change in the settings of your dataloader. Please follow the below steps:

Include NULL values in an update
1. Open Data Loader.
2. Click Settings.
3. Select Insert Null Values.
4. Click OK.

Once done, perform the update operation again but don't forget to include the field as column in the CSV for which you're trying to insert null values. 

Here's the proper documentation for the same:

I am working on this trailhead project: Create an approval process that validates when a Prospect Account becomes a Customer.
For purposes of local regulation new customers must be approved by the legal team.
When an Account has the value of 'Prospect' in the Type field, a user will click the 'Submit for Approval' button to launch an approval process. The process will only happen if Type is 'Prospect' and there are more than 500 employees. Upon entry of the process, Type will become 'Pending' and be locked. If approved, Type will be set to 'Customer' and be unlocked. If not approved, Type will be set back to 'Prospect' and will be unlocked.
The Account object's Type field must have the following picklist values: Prospect, Customer, Pending. Before creating the approval process, verify the values in your Account object setup
The approval process name must be 'Approve New Account'.
When user click 'Submit for Approval', the approval must be processed if the Type field is set to 'Prospect' and the value of Employees is greater than 500.
Upon entering the approval process, set the Type field to 'Pending' and lock the record.
Normally the approver would be someone else. In this instance, assign yourself to be the approver.
If approved, set the Type field to 'Customer' and unlock the record.
If not approved, set the Type field back to 'Prospect', and unlock the record.

This is how I created the approval process
