Every week the GIF Squad tries to feature a person who we feel contributes to the Salesforce community #Ohana . This week the spotlight lands on Shannon Howe! Be sure to check out Shannon’s contact information at the bottom of this post.
Title and Company
Technical Consultant (Tech Lead) at Appirio
- Adm 201
- Dev 401
- Platform Builder I
- App Builder
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. 🙂
