Hi all, 
is there any process or apps in the salesforce to fit the following cases assuming users are out of office and has no access to the desktop?
1. Users may need to access to the salesforce via their ipad or mobile, because they may need to report some urgent cases or problems.
2. When the user report the urgent case, the support could see the location of the user, so that he could find the user immediately without asking the user.
3. When some user has too many tasks to do, he need to assign some tasks, which he could no finish, to some other users. Then he could user the mobile to do it.

Is it possible to create a custom link in a search result list? What I want is to remove the "Del" action link (I know how to do this) and replace it with a custom link "DNE" which will have an action attached to it that will create an activity logging that a call was received rom a DNE client. Basically, I want to save my reps the time of clicking into the record and logging an activity if they see the "Rep Do Not Engage" flag is true. Is this possible?

We have a validation rule on our opportunities relating to the close date. this causes errors when converting a lead and creating an opportunity. is there a way to change the default close date and stage used when converting a lead?
We would automatacilly like to update the close date field on opportunities every day based on certain criteria in the opportunity. I understand this can be done with a Apex Schedule but would like some help in how to go about writing the code for this.

Thanks.

I am trying to retrieve the Full Name of an Opportunities Contact in a VF page. I have {!Opportunity.Opportunity_Contact__r} right now but it brings up the Contact ID instead. What am I doing wrong or what do I need to do?

Thanks,

I am trying to create a field that says whether a Contact has ever had an Activity with a certain value in the Subject Field of all Activities. 

For example: I want to know if the contact has ever had an Activity logged with the Subject Field "First Contact". So if Mary Doe has been called and the call was logged with the Subject Field as "First Contact" and later was called and the call was logged with the Subjct Field as "Sales Presentaion", on her Contact Page the field would say TRUE as she has had a activity with "First Contact".

But if John Doe was called and the Subject Field as logged as "Sales Presentation", and then called again and the Activity was logged with the Subject Field as "Closing" then the field would be "FALSE" as none of the Activities done with him had the Subject Field as "First Contact"

Thanks.
Bryn
I am trying to calculate the Last Activity Date for an activity that has a certain subject. For example: If John calls Mary on Jan 15 with the subject as a Follow Up and then calls Mary again on Jan 20 with the subject as Closing, I want my field to tell me that the last time John completed an activity as a Follow Up is Jan 15 not Jan 20 as the LastActvityDate formula would return.

Please help. I am thinking it would be IF(subject = Follow Up, LastActivityDate, NONE), but dont think it will work.
All,

I am trying to create a validation that says if the Status Changes to "Closed Won", or "Closed Lost", or "Closed Requote" the user mut validate that the close date and value of opportunity is correct.

I am trying to do this as when pulling reports, if the staff havent updated the date that it closed and the dollar value it closed at e get inaccurate reports.

Thanks, Bryn

I have created a custom object called trips...

This is for our sales guys for when they do a day trip.

What I am having trouble with is that I want to have multiple contacts assigned to the trip, and then contacts assinged to multiple trips.

I can create the related list through setup>customize>contacts>feilds>new feild>lookup and then add the contact to the trip throught the feild on the contact page. But that means that the contact is only related to one trip...

Is there a way to do what i want to do?

I have set “Notify default case owner” . How does this notification work ? I do see the newly created cases from email in SF, and they are also assigned to me. But I do not get a notification in my email so that I can check the salesforce portal for new cases.
Also the case creator does not receive a notification of the case creation.
 
I tested the salesforce deliverability and got all the 48 emails as noted. I can also test each individual Template “Case creation” or “case assignment” and do get a test email. But when the case is automatically created nothing happens.
 
I have a custom object called Questions. This object has a lookup to itself because a question can have additional questions which depend on their parent question. We need to insert 200+ at a time so I wrote an apex class that simply inserts the collection given to it:

global with sharing class QuestionRestController{
   global class RequestBody {
       global List<Question__c> questions;
   }

    @HttpPost   
    global static List<Question__c> createBulk(QuestionRestController.RequestBody req) {
        insert req.questions;
        return req.questions;
    }
}

I get this error: System.DmlException: Insert failed. First exception on row 94; first error: INVALID_FIELD, Foreign key external ID: 966.0 not found for field MyExtId__c in entity Question__c no matter what I try.

I figured I could sort the questions before sending the request so that the parent questions are always inserted first but I still get the errors. I've added debug statements so I could verify the order of the questions prior to inserting and they are ordered correctly. I've also tried to insert each question by itself:

for (Question__c question: req.questions) {
    insert question;
}

But then I get a System.LimitException because I'm sending 200+ questions.

So what is the proper way to insert a list of custom objects which have a lookup to itself when the parent and child are both being inserted with the same request?

Thanks

Hi

Hope you are doing good!

I need some help with 'campaign management'. Is there a way around to automatically capture (rather than manually update) the 'campaign member status' ie whether 'sent' or 'responded' based on the mass mail targeted at the campaign members?

What we are doing right now is that we are first defining the campaign and campaign members for the leads. Then we are using the 'mass mail leads' feature to launch a specific mail to this group. And at the moment, once some prospect replies to the mail shot, we have to manually update the 'campaign member status' to 'responded'. This is where we need help to know if there's any way of doing this in an automated fashion.

Even if there's some new approach altogether to launching the campaign and mass mail that helps us automate this, it would be highly useful.

Please help.
Hi,

We have customer portal, where user sign up and uses the portal. in some case, when the user closes the window and try to access customer portal in the same browser, it is loading only the VF template but not the page. The session of the user is not timed out and it behaves this way, if the user session timeout(it is 30 minutes), then the user is able to login successfull. else after login it loads only the template.

i tried adding a javascript and do the login and a page reference to go back to the last left page but it is not happening.

did anyone faced this issue?


Hi Team,

can you please help me,
i receive an error message :
Error: Invalid Data.
Review all error messages below to correct your data.
The page you submitted was invalid for your session. Please click Save again to confirm your change.
 
for my custom button:
/00T/e?who_id={!User.Id}&retURL=%2FContact.Id&RecordType=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx&ent=Task&tsk5=Validate Contact&tsk4={!DATE( YEAR(TODAY()),month( TODAY()),DAY(TODAY()+7))}&tsk2_lkid={!Contact.Id}&tsk2={!Contact.Name}&save=1&retURL={!Contact.Id}


the task should be saved with the prepopulated fields once clicked on the button,  but i've seen in several posts that save=1 stopped working.
Can any body please advise how to put the above into Javascript / onclick JavaScript custom button?

thanks in advance,

As part of the approval process for our sales team I'd like to assign a quote to a queue to enable easy management of people who are able to approve the request.

Looking at the list of available object type however, Quote isn't one of them.

Do I have to assign each user 1 by 1 or is there a way to assign quotes to a queue?
