And on Thursday 8th July 2021, Consultancy Dreamin will join an already awesome list of Salesforce community events.

Consultancy Dreamin will be 100% online and aimed at anyone who already is or wants to be a Salesforce Consultant.

Consultancy Dreamin – Paul Battisson

“I love the idea of the event being focussed around consulting and less on the specific details of technology. As much as I love a deep dive into a specific tool, often the hardest problems we deal with day to day are those related to individuals and communication around the project. Hopefully this event can help everyone improve these skills to make delivering good outcomes easier.” Paul Battisson, Cloud Galacticos COO

Phil's Salesforce Tip of the Week

Data Recovery, Trailmix, New Community Event – Phil’s Salesforce Tip of the Week #444

Tip 1 – Data Recovery Returns

Phew, we can all relax and delete our live data now!! Well not quite, but having have to use this safety net once in my lifetime is enough to appreciate that it is back! Read more about it here.

The post says “Last year, we announced plans to end our Data Recovery Service. We arrived at this decision through several factors — most notably, the small number of customers actively using the service and availability of numerous third-party solutions.

However, you, the Salesforce community, correctly pointed out that Data Recovery Service’s value lies in its very existence and knowing that it’s there in the event of an emergency.”

There are great backup services available on the Appexchange, but if you dont have one of those and an emergency happens, this is your lifeline!

Note also a hint of a new/upgraded feature to come…

“…based on customer feedback, we are pleased to announce that we will pilot Salesforce backup and restore services built natively on the Platform this summer. We’ve co-designed these services with customers and we expect to deliver the performance, speed, and scale that you’ve come to expect from the Salesforce Platform while continuing to provide additional ways to innovate and extend these capabilities through our vibrant ecosystem.”

Tip 2 – New Trailmix

Complete this Spring ’21 Trailmix for Developers by March 31, to earn a special community badge, and enter to win prizes…and learn more about the release contents of course.

Tip 3 – Consultancy Dreamin’

This is a new Community run event, planned for June 2021, and the call for speakers is now open. The website explains “Consultancy Dreamin’ was created for anyone who already is or wants to be a Salesforce Consultant.” Count me in.
