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.

  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.

Salesforce’s Biggest Opportunity for Improvement

Salesforce used to be focused on improving business processes and being THE solution for customers, and lately it seems that Salesforce has been focusing on gaining more clients before providing current customers with the solutions they need. In summary, Salesforce needs to work on being less salesy and more supportive for pre-developers!

Fun Facts about me:

  1. Jessie was born in Japan! It’s not easy being a child of 2 military parents, but she has lived an extraordinary life and experienced many different cultures.
  2. Jessie is an amazing artist that can work with a variety of mediums. From painting to photography to fashion, she has a natural talent to use colors to form vibrant paintings, outfits, and photographic moments.
  3. Natural knack for bringing people together and making lasting memories with celebrations and unique social situations.
  4. Jessie is very athletic and keeps an active lifestyle. Whether she’s traveling across country in her RV or running along the streets of Deep Ellum, she keeps up with her health for mountain biking, surfing, skiing, and just plain ‘ol competitive sports in general. Her natural need to succeed is strong!
  5. Does pineapple belong on pizza? Absol-fruitly it does in Jessie’s opinion. #TeamPineapplePizza

Most Identifies With This Salesforce Mascot:

Codey because he’s the inspirational bear who wants everyone to succeed.
