This is the inaugural post on my experience as a Salesforce Admin, Automator and Developer at the US Subsidiary of a foreign high quality, niche manufacturer of optical analytical equipment used in the life sciences. I started in September 2020/
Like my other big Salesforce client of 2020, Gigantic Bag, a plastics manufacturer with a solid PPE offering, while so much of the economy suffered from the Covid Pandemic, manufacturers of PPE and of advanced instrumentation used in health care and virology and a dizzying array of life sciences research was booming gangbusters.
So I feel grateful.
This first Sway introduces the project through its post, describes the requirements, and I share my observations, along with some retrospective sense of irony as to how it grew from there.
#Zapier is an amazing company — the offering is robust and grows (seemingly) daily; they take security seriously, and there are lots of little signs that this is an org-cultural value of the highest importance.
That said, when looking at declarative point-and-click integrations, if it’s App X to Zapier to App Z, isn’t Salesforce to Office 365 even simpler?
I’ve been tending to the training needs of a cohort of users with widely divergent skill sets. So the AppExchange TrailTracker offering has been a god-send. And I have a Process Builder automation flow triggered by the creation of a new instance of the junction object User-Badge, which happens when I curate a Trailmix module that I feel is well suited to one of my students.
