Andrew,

Take your time, and follow the examples I gave.  Just reminder everything you create an object, make sure to it the newly created object to and objectId so that you can reference that object in other screens.   Like give the account an ID so that when you create an opportunity you can attach the opportunity to the account.

If you are good with this question, please choose best answer to mark it as resolved. 

If you have future questions, please post new questions and either I or someone else will help you.

Thx

Your fields are all wrong:

For example Account does not have firstname, it has company name.

So here's the summary:

Account--> company name

Contact --> First Name, Last Name, and AccountId = {!AccountID}

Opportunity --> Amount, Close Date, Stage Name,   and 
Name = {!Company_Name} - {!Last_Name}
AccountId = {!AccountID}

Thx

When I run the flow with the new information as you suggested I get the first page but the second page comes up with the error 

An unhandled fault has occurred in this flow
An unhandled fault has occurred while processing the flow. Please contact your system administrator for more information.

Here you go, your should look similar to this.  

For user input stage name,  I just have text, apparently you did something else and made it mandatory.

Thanx for your response Wiliam, what I did was follow the instructions given in the scenarios before the Challenge in Trailhead. They gave some examples and I followed the examples to agree with the criteria of the challenge, so that is why my critieria and flow page look the way they do. I will try your suggestions later on when I have some time. Appreciate the time.

@Jennifer Laing  , 


While creating a choice for the dropdwon. Make sure you add "Stored Value" as "Prospecting" in it. I just faced the same issue and solved it.

Thanks,
Anuj.

For date I had to use:  {!$System.OriginDateTime} +30

The only thing I would add to this thread is, I got hung up on this challenge when I used 'Choices' under the 'Choice Settings' for 'Opportunity Stage' on the Screen. When I changed it to 'Picklist Choices' and Created a picklist that pointed to the StageName on the Opportunity object, the flow ran without error. I could complete the rest of the challenge from there.

Just wanted to post a little update...I was stuck with this challenge all day today only to realize that i had created a custom field that was mandatory on Opportunity Object during one of the earlier exercises.This was preventing the Opportunity Object from being created.Deactivate that custom field and Wohooo...Problem Solved.Thanks William..that screenshot really helped!!

This was a very confusing challenge. Here are some points:
  • I didn't check for an existing Account or Contact record. Apparently, this is unnecessary to pass the challenge.
  • I needed to create formulas for the Opportunity Name and Close Date. To do that I clicked "CREATE NEW" in the Value column dropdown and picked Formula.
  • I used the formula "Today() + 30", not the one with the system variable Drew Everard used. That formula did not work for me, but "Today() + 30" did.
  • I gave the screen choice field "Screen" a dropdown that included "Prospecting" and made that the default on creating the Opportunity. This worked, even though the challenge says "set the stage to 'Prospecting'". I made the assumption that if the default was Prospecting it would do this when it checked the challenge, even though you could change the stage on the input screen, and it would get a different stage.
  • I picked up the Account ID and the Contact ID values and stored them in fields, then used them to populate the ID fields on the Contact and Opportunity records, even though it didn't say to do this, because it linked the new records together. I'm not sure it would have worked if I hadn't. But it made it much easier to check the results because I could click the links and go to the associated records.
William Tran's answers were very helpful.

@Trailhead Answers, the video is great, but it would be great to have someone explaining why they're doing things as they do them! :)

For the record I think Today()+30 is a better solution than the DATE(year, month+1,day) solution, because what if today's month is december, or today's date is 31 and there's only 30 days next month?  Ideally you'd use the  DATE(year, month+1,day) with some conditional statments (if ... then ...) that first change month=12 to month=0 and to adjust if the next month doesn't have as many days as is needed, which gets even more tricky around leap-year.  In my tests DATE() expects sanitized data else it returns nothing.  Hmmm... there's an idea for an extension.

I also found that the formula:

{!$Flow.CurrentDate}+30

worked for the opportunity close date.

The formula:

{!Company_Name}+' - '+{!Last_Name}

worked for the opportunity name (note: no quotes around this formula in the entry box for the formula).

And, finally, I used Picklist Choices in this case, although I believe just using Choices and picking matching values to the opporunity stage names worked previously.

Hey all is anyone else getting an error message when entering the formula for close date + 1 month? Any suggestions??
