Tip #1 – Free App of the Week – Schema Surfer

This weeks free app is a quick an easy way to explore your objects and review the metadata, including the parent and child related records. It is a shame you cant export it, and I don’t see where you can view Validations rules or other config, but I still think it is a useful App. So take a look at Schema Surfer for yourself and tell me what you think!

Tip #2 – Dreamforce discount codes

If you are fortunate enough to have a speakers ticket then you will probably have been notified by now. If your boss is paying, then you don’t have to worry about the cost. However if you are paying for yourself, colleagues, or you have a small company that you are taking over, then costs REALLY mount up. So keep an eye out for many Salesforce Partners that offer $100 discount codes. Just contact any partners or app providers that you work with, or a google search will find some codes. The good thing is, they also will work as a refund if you have paid already! If you use them, remember to thank the Partner 🙂
