Some of my accounts have lengthy descriptions, pulled from Zoominfo. They extend the length of the main Accounts section quite a bit as a single-column, and push other fields down below, with a large open space in the column next to Description.

Is there any way to display just the Description field as the full width of the section?

Here is where you would change the number of columns.User-added image
Select 1 column and it will span the 2 columns.User-added image

However, let's say that you want the Description in the same section as other information. This can be done by unchecking the Detail Page and Edit Page checkboxes in a SEPARATE section like this:

Notice how it is a new section....but it will still display in the same section until you specify a new section with a visible header.

If you want more fields below the description, simply create another section with the Detail Page and Edit Page checkboxes unchecked and it will be grouped in the same section.

I'm creating a Screen Flow that among other updates, will let a user take ownership of a Lead. To do this I need to be able to get the user's id so I can assign it to the Owner id of the record. I've alread tried to assign {!$User.Id} and several variations, but what gets assigned to the variable is the literal "{!$User.Id}" and not the users actual id.

Any suggestions on how to let the running user take ownership of the record?

Hello Tim,

You can use a formula to get the ID of the running user. Please refer to this previous question:

Hi, 

I am a new Admin on Salesforce and I would like to create lead stages.

My sales process currently have the following stages: "New", "Working", "Converted". I would like to add 2 other stages. 

However when I go to the Object Manager and select Lead, I can't find a "Stage" field on the "Field relationship". Is it because we can only add Inquiry Status and not Stages on lead?

Thanks.

can we get the email address entered on first web to lead form to second web to lead form?

example- form one will create the lead
form two only for fast track purpose and update the lead created from form one.

not really, web to lead is a fairly simple feature, and does not support an update action

you have three options here:
1. create an apex trigger on the lead object to merge leads with the same unique identifer
2. use Salesforce REST APIs instead of web to lead to custoise the behaviour as you require it
3. customise the journey on the client side, so that you collect data from the first & second form pages, to submit one web-to-lead request with the merged input

I would like to have a group of folks review our existing lead assignment rules.  Is there a way to export or print the lead assignment rules?  Thanks for any feedback.

Regards,
ken

I'll answer my own question :). The easiest way I have found is to simply cut and paste the assignment rules into an Excel or Word document. Not the prettiest solution but not so bad either. It works for my purposes of a group review.

Sometimes when resizing my browser window, my lightning navigation bar pops out of position and occsionally makes scrolling difficult since some of the page material is blocked.

User-added image

Exact steps to reproduce:
0- Using Windows 10 on a laptop
1-Make browser window with SF page collapsed (smaller window, so that only 2-3 objects are visible in the navigation bar).
2-Click refresh in browser. Wait for page load to finish.
3-Maximize browser window. Wait for navigation bar to appear correctly.
4- Collapse browser again. Wait for navigation bar to appear correctly.
5-Maximize browser window. Observe that waiting will no longer 'fix' the navigation bar.
The result is the appearance in the image.

This feels like a bug.

I got a response back:

"We got a feedback from our higher level of support and confirm that this is currently working as design. There are certain components on the page template that are ratio based. When the browser is resized, some of these ratio based components do not resize correctly. When it was resize the browser resolution no longer meets the minimum resolution of 1024 x 768. The minimum resolution is documented here: https://help.salesforce.com/articleView?id=getstart_browser_recommendations.htm&type=5 The minimum screen resolution required to support all Salesforce features is 1024 x 768. Lower screen resolutions don’t always properly display Salesforce features."

I disagree with the design decisions but the link provided does explain it away saying strange behavior might happen if the window is resized. I don't expect further actions based on this response so will vote this the best answer.

We do not work with activities in our org, so none of our opportunities have related activities scheduled. As a result of this, all opportunities have a warning in the kanban view that reads as follows:

No open activities
Take action to keep this deal moving.

Is there any way to remove these warnings?
Bonus points if we are able to adjust the message and what triggers it!

Hello Erik,

It's seems from the limitation mentioned in the Salesforce Help it is not possible to customize. Here is the link for your reference :

Dear all,

Its almost 2 am and i have lost thinking ability.

I have created a flow that updates a field in custom object. I have a PB that is triggered by update of this field. When i change this field in the UI, PB fires. However, when flow updates the field it doesnt.

Why is it so?

Thanks,

Hi Aviral,

I gave up trying to send email through complex flows. I have just 3-month experience in SFDC and 2 weeks in Flow Builder efficiently.

I will do this: I have a calculated field: Remaining Day: (Expiration Date - Today()). When it's 7 or 3, then PB fires and calls a flow. In this flow, i can send basic emails. This is fine for me for now. 

Just i want to ask you that this field will be updated every night. Thats what i want. At midnight, when field is updated, my PB will work?

Personal currency vs. corporate currency vs. record currency

I understand the first two - personal and corporate.  What is a record currency and how is it different than either personal or corporate currency?

Best Answer chosen by Munira Majmundar

Munira,
What if you have EMEA clients? Or what if you wanted to have the currency on your record as per the actual deal, based on the country of your client? The record currency would make more sense in that case. 
So let's say you want to create an Opportunity for an Account whose location is UK, it will make more sense to have the record currency as GBP. However, if you wanted to record the deal's amount in your personal currency or corporate currency, you can obviously do that based on how your organization tracks currencies on records.
