I'm having trouble validating challenge 2, with regard to Shinje Tashi's user settings.
ERROR: 
Challenge Not yet complete... here's what's wrong: 
Shinje Tashi does not have the user settings he needs.

The instructions say: "This sales data quality specialist supports the entire company and needs to be assigned a role that can see and access all account, contact, and opportunity records for the entire company. Use the Standard User profile."

First off, it seems odd not to handle this through a separate profile, but I'm trying to follow the directions. So...

I created Shinje as an active user, User License: Salesforce, Profile: Standard User. There isn't a role specified for him, and the instructions suggest providing access to all acct, contact and oppty records through a role assignment, so I created a Sales Data Admin role, reporting to the CEO. That role should provide RECORD access. Additionally, for OBJECT access, I created a permission set granting full access (CRED, View All, Modify All) to Acct, Contact, and Oppty objects and assigned it to Shinje. I created a separate permission set granting access to the Language preference field on Acct, named that permission set "Bilingual Pilot" as instructed, and assigned it to Shinje.

I'm not sure what I'm missing...

 
Finishing the last challenge of the picklist administration Trailhead Module results in an error message, I cannot solve - see screenshot. Any ideas? I promoted the field to a global picklist, created the new field based on the global value set as requested...

Screenshot at step 6, shows the dropdown for the column to sort the list on, is only as wide, as one woudl expect the dropdown to be.

Using the suggested code, the width is not as in the screenshot for me, it renders differently in both Chrome and Firefox, is this something which can be improved?

I have been working on a screen flow that around 10AM on Oct5 I noticed I could no longer load the flow in designer. A previous version could be loaded, so I did and made the same update... And the new update could also not be opened in designer. 

I then copied the previous version to a new flow, made extensive changes to its structure, saved... and the new flow cannot be opened in designer. 

Other flows can be opened. 

So I made a duplicate of the new flow through intelliJ, deployed it and... it cant be opened. 
There was nothing fancy or strange about the changes made, and all the flow does is update some fields on a record. 

The error in every case is in the sceenshot below, it just hangs there forever. User-added imageIt is hard to read so the text of the error is:
 

This page has an error. You might just need to refresh it.
[Error]
Failing descriptor: {markup://builder_platform_interaction:flcConversionUtils}

This happens in chrome both regular and incognito, in firefox both in regular and private, and in safari. 

I do not know what the interaction its referencing is doing, the flow does not use anything external & does not do any kind of conversion. 

I am at my witts end here. Salesforce support bounced me to the forums claiming its a developer issue and not a platform issue. 
Anyone got any ideas?
Thanks

I created a very basic Trigger:

trigger HelloWorld on Lead (before update) {
    for (Lead L : Trigger.new) {
    L.FirstName = 'Hello';
    L.LastName  = 'World';
  }
}

When I create a new Lead record in Classic, it works as expected (ie, no change since it should fire only in Update) but when I create a new Lead record in Lightning, as soon as I save, the first and last name gets updated to Hello World.

This is a brand new developer Org and so there are no other triggers etc. Has anyone else run into this problem?
Happy New Year All! Strange issue that may be related to the New Year. I have an APEX integration to Amazon S3. It stopped working indicating that the date in the request is not yet valid. I checked it out and it looks like the formerly working integration is now sending 12/31/2018 as an expiration date. It appears to be related to gmtFormat dateTime function. I set up a test below and the results.

String iso8601date = system.now().formatGmt('YYYYMMdd\'T\'HHmmss\'Z\'');
system.debug('formatGMT ' + iso8601date);
11:43:25:001 USER_DEBUG [2]|DEBUG|formatGMT 20181231T164325Z

DateTime iso8601date2 = system.now();
system.debug('not formatted ' + string.valueof(iso8601date2));
11:43:25:002 USER_DEBUG [5]|DEBUG|not formatted 2017-12-31 08:43:25 

Note: the user is PST so the times are the same.

Anyone else seeing this behavior? This is in a dev org, but I tried in my prod org and seemed to get the same results.

 
I found documentation about how to do this for Custom Objects but is there a way to do this for Standard Objects?

In Process Automation, Module 2. I don't see the New Flow button for creating a new flow. I see New in Process Builder and New Email Alert for Email Alert, but not New Flow.
I noticed that there is no link in this Trailhead for OpenSSL for Windows.  It simpy says "Windows complete package.exe installer" with no link. What's the suggestion or recommendation for those of us on Windows?

Thank you.

Hi Guys,

 

I understand it's native functionality within the quoting/quote sync functionality for when you have existing quote line items synced, if you create a new quote agains that opportunity, it copies the line items from the previous quote.

 

There's got to be a way around this, even if it involves code, right? Does anyone have experience with this type of business requirement or know how it could be accomplished? Thanks for the help!!!

Has anyone else using Communities in a preview org seen that default text color and size is no longer controlled by the branding Palette?  All components in my community, custom and OOTB are defaulting to what looks like a standard Salesforce color, #0059a7.

As an example, if I add a Rich Content Editor component and add text, it does not obey the Text Color Set in branding.

In the screenshot here you can see the Branding editor is defulating text color to #51515, but without adding any custom coloring in the Content Editor, the text is showing up as #0059a7.  This behavior is consistent in all components, custom and Standard.  
Incorrectly Colored Text

This issue occurs whether or not I have upgraded my Napili Template.

I'm also attaching a screenshot of the inspector, which shows the computed style and rule.

I am trying to create a flow which will add my closing dates for my opportunities into my calendar.  I contacted Salesforce support but unfortunately they are not able to help with the error I keep getting....    Below is the error report I get when trying to create an opportunity when this flow is activated.  At the bottom it says required field missing [Activity Date], what is this field?  Any help is appreciated.
