So much time has passed and yet it feels like time has stood still. Its been a fog. Days of the same, punctuated by trying to remember which day my husband was in the office (he works in a hospital) and pagers going off (he’s also a first responder). I think I’ve logged like 100 READ MORE

Does it really have to be called a Custom Object?
Salesforce is weird. Okay, stick with me for a minute. Here is a platform that can be customized with clicks, no developer required. You can do a whole lot, in fact entire orgs can be designed and implemented without a single bit of code. Take just about any other major software option out there. If READ MORE
Do Not Push That Button
Have you ever hit a point in a project where you have wanted to get rid of one or more buttons from the page layout but only when a certain circumstance happens? We kept having users clicking buttons that when they should not have been. Clearly training was not going to solve the problem for READ MORE
Favorite Flow Function
I am all about screen flows but sometimes its even better to be able to avoid using screens. The day before Dreamforce I am sitting in my hotel room, having flown out a day early to be available for a project, with a new puzzle in front of me. We needed some data to “default” READ MORE

Change Set Trials
I’ve spent this past weekend in change set hell. I have 4 change sets that have to be deployed, with each one dependent on the next. Everything is documented in a super detailed deploy book but still the first one, the easy one failed. And then failed again. And again. Change sets are definitely one READ MORE
I built a flow… now what?
I love flows. Really I do. In case there was any question, I’m declaring it officially. Some times its a love-hate relationship, but at the end of the day, I like to figure out what are the limits to what I can do with it. But its all well and good to build a flow. READ MORE
Finding Lost Variables
I have spent the last few weeks buried by a crazy flow. This flow does everything but make you lunch sadly. Would have been really helpful if it did when I was on my 15th time through it in debug mode trying to figure out why it wasn’t behaving as expected. For days I struggled READ MORE
