Phil's Salesforce Tip of the Week

Pakistan Dreamin – Phil’s Salesforce Tip of the Week #466

Welcome to my Salesforce Tip of the Week #466

 

Tip 1 – Chrome Extension

Salesforce inspector app on Chrome web store

Our Consultant Val Southern has been become the biggest fan of the ‘Salesforce Inspector‘ Chrome Extension. Here is what she says:

This is a really useful Chrome extension which can be opened from a menu icon on any page in Salesforce. The extension allows the user to examine all data in the current record (plus field details), regardless of the visible fields on the page layout and allows quick data updates to that record right from that record view.

There’s also a neat link from the menu to run SOQL queries and paste the results into Excel or .csv

Form what I’ve seen so far, I can see how many Admins find it to be a really valuable time-saver with it’s quick shortcuts where I’d previously have to trawl the setup menu or go through object manager to get to the same places accessed through Salesforce Inspector’s menu. For example, quickly login as a user to diagnose an issue, access object detail and more.

I’ve only scratched the surface but I expect it will become part of my everyday life from now on!

 

Tip 2 – Pakistan Dreamin

Following the official announcement of the Slack acquisition, there is already a whole load of Slack-related learning resources on Trailhead. There’s ‘Boost Collaboration with the Salesforce for Slack Integration‘, ‘Automate Slack Messages‘, and ‘Slack + Salesforce for Future of Work‘…

Tip 3 – Chrome Extension

One of our consultants at Cloud Galacticos, Adam (‘meet him’ here), has suggested this useful Chrome Extension…

A useful tool I’ve recently discovered is ‘Better Salesforce Formula Editor’.  Ever get annoyed trying to find that missing bracket and the long if statement all over the place?  This tool can help with these and a lot more.  Including comparisons, tabulation, autocomplete and syntax highlighting. 

All in a neat extra tab against the formula when you edit the formula. It even tells you the compile size at the bottom and if any errors exist on the fly.”

Why not have a try of the ‘Better Salesforce Formula Editor‘ and let us know what you think?
