    SalesforceA App: Just for Admins!

    • An App that’s just for Admins! SalesforceA.

      During Dreamforce 13, Mark Beniof, Founder, Chairman and CEO of salesforce.com acknowledged the importance of the role of the System Administrator during his keynote speech and announced a new mobile App designed exclusively for System Administrators.

      Introducing SalesforceA …

      The SalesforceA app allows System Administrators to perform some basic User administration tasks from anywhere using their mobile device.

      Key features:

      • View Frozen or Lock Out users from the Home Screen
      • Freeze users: In Winter ’14 Salesforce introduced a new “Freezing” feature which prevents a user from logging in without deactivating them. This is very useful if the user has workflows or approvals associated to them or is the default lead owner.
      • Unlock users who forget their passwords and find themselves locked out.
      • Easily search for, view and edit a User record
      • Permission sets! Although you can’t (yet) create a new permission set within the app, you can assign or un-assign permission set to a User
      • Links to Salesforce Ideas, Answers, User Groups, MVP Blog, Events and
      • Access Salesforce Release notes

      Although this current release doesn’t allow you to create a new User or Permission set, just the ability to unlock passwords or freeze users while on the go is a valuable tool for any Admin that’s been faced with a User who’s run out of password attempts or has had to quickly disable access to a suddenly departed User.
      These features alone make the App worth downloading and with Salesforce’s history of regular App updates introducing new features and functionality, this very useful app can really only get better.

  • Life in Actual Lockdown – Reflections from the Philippines

    The word lockdown has been used to describe many of the restrictions that have been put in place due to COVID-19. However, while many Australians say we have been living in lockdown, the reality is we still had a fair bit of freedom, even before restrictions began easing.

  • Struggling for motivation? You’re not alone!

    It’s fair to say that all of us have struggled with motivation at some stage throughout the current situation. Whether it is on the work front or with exercise, maintaining connections, home schooling, or the multitude of other issues we come across in our day, most of us have had moments of blah. 

    Our Operations Manager Karen, is no different. Despite being one of the ‘lucky ones’, Karen has still witnessed the financial pain of workers and businesses and knows that even those who are still operating face a future in which planning will play a key role.

  • The Cost of Doing Nothing

    With so much uncertainty in the economy at the moment, ‘hunkering down’ seems like the obvious solution to saving money. However, as our National Sales Manager notes, this approach may not deliver the desired value in the long run.
