Phil's Salesforce Tip of the Week

Free Apps, Partner News, Book Review – Phil’s Salesforce Tip of the Week #441

Tip 1 – Free App(s) of the week

Thank you to Amanda Nelson at the Appexchange team for adding some of my favourite free SalesforceLabs Apps to this article. So now you have 13 recommendations to take a look at! Enjoy.

It looks like Report and Dashboard apps are very popular on the Appexchange, and especially from the free apps provided by SalesforceLabs. Of the Apps recommended, I have also used ‘Adding multiple related records’ and ‘MyV2MOM’. Which are your favourite Labs apps?

FYI – To make it easier and faster to find these apps, Appexchange recently launched a new Salesforce Labs Digital App Guide. “Find the department or challenge that best match your needs, and once you find an app (or a few), click on the listing to learn more and install it”.


Tip 2 – Partners

Congratulations to Shiv and his team at Dazeworks, who this week announced they are joining with US based iLink Digital. We have worked together with Dazeworks since Day 1 and are very happy for their news, and look forward to working with the extended team in the future. It is great to hear positive stories in these challenging times, and this is a great positive for both Dazeworks and iLink.


Tip 3 – Book review – ‘Eat That Frog’

You know that thing that you know you have to do but don’t really want to do…just get it done first thing, and your whole day/life will be better! Ok that has saved you a few hours of reading. But actually, after I thought the moral of this short book had been taught on page 1, there was some more useful ideas for prioritising what is important, and ending procrastination.


Eat that frog and sign up to my weekly Salesforce Tips email. As you may know, I write this blog every Friday, and have done for over 8 years (never missed a Friday yet!), and add whatever interesting things I find in the Salesforce world each week. Feedback always welcome. I hope you enjoy the content, and the ‘short & sweet’ format.
