Salesforce’s Biggest Opportunity for Improvement

This is minor, but it would be helpful to have more targeted options for email deliverability settings. The only options are All, System, and No Emails, but when testing features with email alerts, it would be great to be able to turn emails on and off on a per object basis.

Fun Facts about me:

  1. Total karaoke addict!
  2. I climbed 311 steps to the top of a London monument.
  3. I rotate between almost 20 pairs of glasses.
  4. I have 2 tattoos that were hand-poked in Iceland.
  5. I haven’t eaten red meat in 24 years.

Most Identifies With This Salesforce Mascot:

Appy, because she’s a problem-solver with cool glasses.

Salesforce Community Group Leader?

I am currently the leader of the Morristown, NJ Pardot User Group. We were getting ready to host our first ever meeting when Salesforce announced some exciting new changes to community groups. Once the details are ironed out, we’ll be off to the races. That might mean a marketing automation focused community group, or possibly joining a local admin group as a leader and incorporating Pardot specific content.

Favorite Salesforce Feature

I love analytics in Salesforce. There’s nothing like being able to take the data from the fields you worked hard to configure and summarize it to give your company valuable insights which yield actionable decisions to move the business forward!

Salesforce’s Biggest Opportunity for Improvement

I’d really like to see Pardot test environments available in Trailhead so users can get hands-on in their marketing automation learning journey – even if they’re not a Pardot customer. We all have to be #keepingupwiththepardashians, as @ifeellikemacmac would say! That hashtag cracks me up!

Fun Facts about me:

  1. I’m a mom to two AWESOME, smart, kind, and brave boys – John John, 9 and Brody, 5. Being a mom to my boys is filled with sports, adventures, sticky hands, endless laughs, and FUN!
  2. Metallica is my favorite band – and they played at Dreamforce this year! *raises the roof*
  3. I love autumn – crisp weather, leaves changing color, and FOOTBALL! I’m a huge Philadelphia Eagles fan. The best part about being a Jersey girl, though, is that we get to experience all the seasons.
  4. I’m a former sales rep turned Salesforce admin/analyst. I fell in love with Salesforce as an end user, and it has really brought a unique empathy to my roles in sales operations. The skills you learn in sales can be applied to any role. I think everyone should work in sales at some point in their career.
  5. You’re very likely to see me wearing my favorite white sunglasses. I call them my Wendy Peffercorn glasses. Who doesn’t love the movie ‘The Sandlot’? It’s a classic.

Most Identifies With This Salesforce Mascot:

I LOVE Appy because girl power! Also, I’m a huge proponent of working smarter, not harder. When in doubt, AppExchange!

Week of Lori Witzel

Every week the GIF Squad features a person who we feel contributes to the Salesforce community #Ohana . This week’s spotlight lands on Lori Witzel! Be sure to check out Lori’s contact information at the bottom of this post.

 

Title and Company

Senior Product Marketing Manager, Spanning Cloud Apps

 

Are you a User Group Leader?

I’m the former San Antonio, TX UG Leader

 

Certifications

I wish! Alas, I got the Gandalf result – “YOU SHALL NOT PASS”

 

Favorite Salesforce Feature

Reporting – because it’s a fantastic way for a PMM (me) to learn about our customers right from our own data! (Second fave isn’t really a feature – but I luv our #Ohana.)

 

Salesforce’s Biggest Opportunity for Improvement

The Export Service – I’ve heard from too many admins that it’s not workable for backup that enables restore (takes too much time, “needle in a haystack” searches for data)… It also gives too many admins a false sense of security that they’re going to be able to respond quickly if significant amounts of data are lost. (I’m proud to work for an AppExchange ISV partner, Spanning, that provides a better way to backup and restore.)

 

Salesforce Goal(s) for 2017
  1. Exceed 600 Salesforce Selfie Community Survey Responders so we can max out our donation to Project Night Night – and find more ways to give back.
  2. Get Admin certified, daggnabit.

 

5 Fun Facts about Lori
  1. I played a very crazy woman in Rick Linklater’s first movie, “Slacker.”
  2. I have a graduate degree in art history / cultural studies, and have presented papers at local, regional, and international medieval conferences (OMG!)
  3. I’ve completed a marathon (very slowly) and have completed a decathlon (except for the pole vault – I couldn’t get up over even a very low bar, so they marked me at zero for that.)
  4. I competed in a powerlifting meet (OMGOMG!)
  5. I write poetry and take a lot of photos of rusty things, and you can see my “other world” HERE.

 

Most Identifies With Which Salesforce Mascot

Appy – not only because she knows all things about the AppExchange, where my company’s app lives…but because she’s a connector, and I love connecting people to each other, and to good resources.
