Favorite Salesforce Feature

Process builder and flow! This puts the power of automation in the hands on the admin. Clicks not code!

Salesforce’s Biggest Opportunity for Improvement

Quick create. This causes data issues for us where validation rules are ignored and you can’t customize the fields shown on the page and bypasses record type selection. Why do we still have that?!

Salesforce Goal(s) for 2017

I would like to get 1-2 more Salesforce certifications under my belt, continue personally to grow own Salesforce experience, continue to reach people in the community via blog, presentations at in person and virtual events, attend regional events and hopefully, find more time to spend on the Success Community.

Certifications

  • Dev 401
  • Platform Builder I
  • App Builder
Trailhead

40 Badges

Favorite Salesforce Feature

Process Builder + Invocable methods combo; in addition to the obvious capabilities of combining code with declarative functionality, this combo allows you to switch on/off code changes very quickly and without running test classes or using ant.

Salesforce’s Biggest Opportunity for Improvement

Drawing a blank, but my gripe this week is multi-language anything. Take for example Assignment Rules and notification settings for them. Breaking out 1 rule into 5 to be able to send different email templates based on language settings, or configuring a weird template hack just isn’t admin-friendly nor effective.

Salesforce Goal(s) for 2017

Spend less time working in client orgs on the weekends/late weekdays and more time in communities/on my blog site… Also, all of the certs. ALL OF THEM.

Fun Fact about Shannon

I LOVE unsweetened carrot juice.

Most Identifies With Which Salesforce Mascot

Codey. Codey likes to hibernate through the winters and code through the rest of the year. 🙂
