Enable Person Accounts in Dev edition

Hi all, Any hints on how to get person accounts made available?

 

From the documentation I've read it looks like I need to request it from SF directly, but for the life of me I can't seem to locate a method to make that request.

 

Thanks

Hi,

 

You need to log a ticket to salesforce to enable Person Accounts in Dev Edition.

 

To log a ticket -> Login into your Dev Edition -> Click on "Help" at the Top -> Click on "My Cases" -> Click On "Log A Case" -> Select the Case Reason as "Feature Activation Request" -> Select  "Feature Activation" in  "General Activation Area" and ask for the Person Account Enablement.

 

Hope this helps.

 

Thanks

Hello,

 

I have the same question as the original poster... I do not have the "My Cases" section available for some reason... I'm in a developer org that I created earlier today. When I click "Contact Support" it says I need to log in and click on "Log a Case" but I'm already logged in and no matter how many times I refresh the page I can't get a "My Cases" or "Log a Case" section/button to appear. All I want to do is enable Person Accounts!

 

Any help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks

Salesforce has amended it's policies & included a new Clause "Not to Support Developer Edition Customer".Why? Because simpy they are not getting any income from the Developer Edition since it is of Free of Cost.

You can only raise a case with Salesforce to have Person Accounts enabled if you're in a Partner Developer org. You can't raise a case for a standard Developer org.

this sounds a bit crazy for me, there should be at least one possibility to contact salesforce in this specific case to enable person accounts in a dev edition ...

You can raise a support case using Help to enable Person Accounts even in Developer Edition.

I tried calling to get help, but the phone system kept looping me through recordings.  I contacted their sales team and enquired how I can get Person Accounts.  I basically was told that I was being cheap and needed to pay for it.  Plus Salesforce was tired of supporting people that don't pay for the product.  The sad thing was that I was trying to sale a client on Salesforce.  That client heard the conversation and Salesforce has lost the sale.  It's Salesfoce's loss.

Unfortunately, I have also been spinning my wheels. Where can I find the phone number to Salesforce Success?

I'm as well facing the same issue. Contact Support is not opening, nor in Classic or Lightning versions. What to do next? How to enable the Person Account when you cannot get into contact to SF Support via phone nor raising a ticket? Please could someone give a bit help.

Hello,

Salesforce Does't Allow Developer Account to Reach Out to them and enable Persons Account on Developer Org. But i have found a workaround for the same. With Scratch Org you can easily enable Person Account for your org, and work on it for the next 30 days. Although if you are not friendly with SFDX then you can learn the basics in 30 mins and create a account and use it for your Person Account related Experiments.
