Skip the Infrastructure, Get Straight to Development

It’s a skill that can take years to hone. The tools that developers use can be foreign to other folks. Things like “the CLI” or “IDE’s” or “git”. Like any other specialization, developers speak their own language, and over the decades have developed tools that are aimed at their use case.

Also, the craft of development is hard. If you think about it, we are writing step by step instructions for computers to execute. We are pretty darn close to running at the bottom of the stack, right?


The Exchange: Fall 2020

In our fall 2020 issue, you’ll read how our community is finding comfort in everyday activities and in each other.

Trailblazers turn to technology to meet challenges head-on and drive change.

There is no greater comfort than our community. We hope these stories about building relationships, making connections, and moving forward inspire you as much as they do us.

In this issue, you’ll also find: 

  • Virtual team building ideas 
  • Labs LWC Competition & Demo Jam Recap 
  • A fun Appy pumpkin carving template

Introduction to Performance Testing

When you first started building your Salesforce implementation, probably anything that was deployed was peppy and responsive. Searches responded instantly. Page loads were less than two seconds. All the users could be fully engaged without any noticeable effect on the system.

Now you need to grow the system, whether that means user base, data volume, or transactions per second. Furthermore, you’re asked to confirm that your solution will perform at-scale. This article provides guidance on how to solve these challenges through performance testing.


How to Deal with the Salesforce Insufficient Privileges Error

If your organization uses the Principle of Least Privilege or is utilizing the new Minimum Access User Profile, then you’ll need to check and verify that the permissions in the user’s permission set are there. On the user detail page, scroll to the Permission Set Assignments related list and click each permission set. On the permission set overview page, click Object Settings, and review the assigned object permissions. Review the user permissions in the App Permissions and system Permissions sections. Repeat these steps for each permission set assigned to the user.


Salesforce Release Readiness

Our Winter ’21 release is almost here and we want to make sure you have all the information you need to make the most of all the new features. We may not be in the studio this time, but we still have our product managers coming to you live. They’ll guide you through what’s new and give you a sneak peek into their roadmap for the rest of 2020.

In the blink of an eye, the retail industry changed. The majority of retailers closed their doors to adhere to shelter-in-place orders. Big box and grocery retailers barely kept up with demand while non-essential retailers were left with excess inventory. Digital shopping surged.

Ignite Your Inner Integration Trailblazer With Salesforce’s New Trail

Integration is the process that enables systems within a company to communicate with each other. It’s a common bottleneck that keeps organizations from optimizing, resulting in data silos and inefficiency. Data is necessary in order to achieve digital transformation, but that data lives in thousands of systems and apps. This slows down innovation.

Companies are facing increasing consumer expectations and shifting market conditions, creating demand for data integration projects. Right now, 92% of IT leaders say their integration needs go beyond IT and encompass a wide range of business functions. Every function in the organization depends on connecting applications, data sources, and devices for day-to-day work.

Getting Started with Enhanced Transaction Security Policies

What if I told you that you could prevent your users from adding fields containing sensitive data to their reports as they build and edit in the report builder? Or that you could require two-factor authentication when a user logs in from an outdated browser version? Well, you’re in luck, transaction security policies are one of the coolest features in Salesforce you might not have known existed! They give you the ability to block the transaction or alert an admin when a user does something that might be suspicious. By bringing together transaction security policies and Apex conditions, we can take our org’s security to the next level.
