Every week the GIF Squad features a person who we feel contributes to the Salesforce community #Ohana . This week’s spotlight lands on Becka Miller! Be sure to check out Becka’s contact information at the bottom of this post.
Title and Company
CRM Architect at the Fury Group
Currently at 131, but want to hit 150 by the end of August. I love Trailhead! As a consultant, I not only need to know Salesforce, but also what is possible with Salesforce even if I am not an expert in that particular area. Trailhead helps me keep up!
Are you a User Group Leader?
Yes – Houston Pardot User Group and owner/organizer of the NW Houston Salesforce Saturday group
- Salesforce Certified Administrator (July 1, 2015)
- Salesforce Certified Pardot Consultant (October 21, 2015 )
- Salesforce Certified Pardot Specialist (April 1, 2017 )
Favorite Salesforce Feature
You may laugh because this is such a simple feature, but I really like list views! I love teaching sales reps how to use them to run their day better – what leads need to be contacted, who to follow up with – but they are also useful when I am trying to find out extensive re-mapping a field is going to be. Yes, you COULD do it with a report, but if it’s not too many records, List Views gives you inline editing, which is AWESOME!.
Salesforce’s Biggest Opportunity for Improvement
Definitely Quick Create – whenever I do an org update for someone, that is the first thing I remove because it doesn’t respect validation rules or required fields.
Salesforce Goal(s) for 2017
For my groups: I had a goal to reach 50 users in our the Houston Pardot User Group this year, but we are at 60 now and we’re just heading into August! If we can get to 75 this year I’ll be ecstatic. I just started the Salesforce Saturday group in February and I’m so happy to have some Salesforce pals to hang out with, who motivate me to keep learning, & would love to see this group grow as well. As for my personal goals, I will be taking the App Builder cert exam this month, and next on the horizon (also for 2017) is the Sales Cloud Consultant exam…maybe by Dreamforce? Would love to be an MVP!
