Salesforce Custom Report Type for Object Metadata

Last week, I was working on a few year-end items, one of which was maintaining my Salesforce Admin certification.

It’s a module and there is a challenge at the end that must be completed to pass. This was my first time going through the certification maintenance. [Read More]

Domino V11 New Web Authentication Options

I have upgraded my lab server to Domino V11 and have started checking some of the new features out. First up, the new option to authenticate web users with their Notes ID passwords from the ID Vault. This is a really nice feature that is working as designed. This basicall allows you to not use the Internet password field for users that have their IDs in the vault, so that’s one less place you have to maintain a password - nice! [Read More]

Certified for Salesforce!

Like a few others in the Yellowverse, I’ve been playing around in the Salesforce Trailhead environment for a while. Apparently, it’s been over 2 years. This year, I’ve been looking at it more seriously and decided to get certified as an Admin. I’ve been working in Trailhead mostly and it’s fantastic, it’s a great way to get introduced to the Salesforce platform and learn by doing and not just reading documentation or watching videos.

I click the Next button to get the list of available deployment plans and nothing, zip, nada shows in the window. Hmmm. [Read More]
