I have completed the following lesson: https://trailhead.salesforce.com/trails/automate_business_processes/projects/flow_reassign/steps/flow_reassign_find. When I completed the lesson I get the following error: Step not yet complete... here's what's wrong:
sObject collection variable 'User1_Accounts' isn't properly configured. Check the instructions.

Attached is the lesson and my setup. They match so I don't know why I get the error.
My flow is called reassign accounts.
Setup in playground matches lesson

Appreciate feedback to fix and resolve flow problem

Based on the following Trailhead exercise https://trailhead.salesforce.com/trails/automate_business_processes/projects/flow_calculate/steps/flow_calculate_implement
the flow does calculate the percentage but does not calculate the discount value in currency as noted in the lesson? I added the field to the page which was missing I assume the flow needs additional steps for the value to place into Discount_Amount__c. 
Key words: sfdx force (Trailhead DX) 
When I use the following command "sfdx force:source:push"
the returned value is Error after push less sfdx force AccountLocator
the reference lesson is: 
https://trailhead.salesforce.com/en/modules/sfdx_app_dev/units/sfdx_app_dev_build_app. Need help to resolve the file definition for AccountLocator.design and AccountLocator.cmp. Can't move onto the next lesson since I am using the geolocation code as the parent (project).

Thanks Fred Flores
 
I am working in trailhead and the requirement is to create a new wave org to test Einstein Analytics.

I tried to create two new user accounts both failed to login:
Username: floresfml@sbcglobal.net.lrn; system responds with a link to reset the password, the error is based on system indicates a question " pet name?" but I have not setup the answer, therefore, the system fails to allow me to log in.I retested this with a second username ca.fred.flores@outlook.com. Found the same error. I have also tried to log a ticket with Salesforce. This does not work.

The instructions are to enable "Live Agent"  so you can continue the lesson. When I click on enable the system does not respond? There is no error message just not committing the action?

I recently took the maintenance exam and failed. I tried to retake the  exam again. The problem found is related to WebAssessor will not allow me to create a new exam. The field for promotional  code indicates invalid promotional code. Based on the standard available information about maintenance release are supposed to be free. I opened a Case and waited for response. Today I called Technical support and then said they would need to reach out to someone within Salesforce Chattergroup what works on Certifications. This is critical given I will lose my Salesforce Admin certification if I don't pass this maintenance exam by 7/14/2017 which is the deadline. The Case # is 00165185. I look forward to getting a response. I would hope with the delays since the ticket that I could get a 1 week delay before expire to allow me to retake the maintenance exam a few times given that is the standard today. I am a dedicated user of Salesforce and spend alot of time in Trailhead. I have completed the Winter 17' badge in practice.

Thanks for your response

Based on the exercice:
https://trailhead.salesforce.com/projects/flow_calculate/steps/flow_calculate_find

Within a dev org I have clicked on add a " New Flow". The screen is blank. All I can see if "Unsaved flow" with no activities available?

I will be looking for input to be able to finish the exercise.
Thanks Fred Flores
 

I am testing from Trailhead and noted that the instruction indicates Lighting versions with CPQ. When I check App Exchange I find CPQ but they look to be costed models. Can you suggest a free version for testing only?

Thanks

Trailhead Lesson reference: https://trailhead.salesforce.com/projects/quickstart-lightning-experience-sales/steps/qs-lex-sales-4
The lesson is a carryover from a prior lesson: https://trailhead.salesforce.com/projects/quickstart-lightning-experience-sales/steps/qs-lex-sales-3

therefore the source of the record created came from the qs-lex-sales-3. I found that when I tried to submit for challenge I get the following error:
Challenge Not yet complete... here's what's wrong: 
The record was not created correctly.


This does not make sense when the prior record was created by prior lesson and now has a problem to complete the existing? The instructions show the following update to the record name: 10,000 Units (Opportunity)

1. Amount from 100,000 to 120,000
2  Close date. (to present date).
3. Stage from 10 prospecting to 100% -Closed/Won.
opportunity from close your deal exercise
Appreciate feedback.
Thanks, Fred Flores 
after completing the challenge when checking the results the system indicates error. But the value is correct.
https://trailhead.salesforce.com/trails/force_com_dev_beginner/modules/point_click_business_logic/units/formula_fields

The formula evaluates "0" , I tested it twice. With a prior result of -3 (last activity) was 5/1 , today was 5/3 the formula evaluated -3.
Today I retested again. Updated the Activity today , the formula evaluated = 0. The error on screen shows 

Challenge Not yet complete... here's what's wrong: 
The 'Days_Since_Last_Update__c' formula field did not return the correct number of days between an Account’s Last Activity Date and today.

I look forward to your update.
How do I get my Trailhead dashboard updated? I have completed 21 badges and 4 trails. Revised dashboards shows no trails and only 5 badges
One of our developers randomly experienced an issue where the Lightning options are gone except Lightning Tokens. Even in the shortcuts section  all lightning shortcuts are gone. The change seemed to happen suddenly. We've tried to create a new user, but any new user seems to have a similar issue. No other existing developer has experienced this issue. Attached is a screen shot showing the missing items.

Hello,

I have been self-teaching Salesforce to take the ADM201 exam since March 2018. I have completed the Salesforce Certification Trailmix (https://trailhead.salesforce.com/users/00550000006yDdKAAU/trailmixes/prepare-for-your-salesforce-administrator-credential), and have been studying the Salesforce help docs diligently. I am reluctant to use unofficial study materials, as I don't want to be misled by inaccurate information, and have already seen discrepencies between sites. I have taken the official Salesforce Practice Test a few times, only doing marginally better each time. Here is my most recent result:
Scores from my 3rd Practice Test. On previous attempts, I had done better on the lower-weighted sections, but worse on the heavier parts

 
It is rather unfortunate that we are left in the dark about which specific areas of improvement are needed. The ADM201 Study Guide recommends 6 months real-world experience to pass the exam. Trouble is, I have no real-world Salesforce experience, even as a user in an organization. To gain experience, I have applied to some nonprofits that need help, but even they all want certified admins. How common is this?

What should I do? I'd love to get some advice, as well has hear your experiences. I'm really hoping someone can shine a light.

Best,

Sam

I am attempting to install an app in completing a training module.  Installing the app requires my user name and password.  Don't know the current password (regular SFDC password doesn't work).  Can't reset the password with knowing my training entity city of birth.  So, without this information, I can't complete the training module.

Hello,
I am trying to complete the salesforceDX trail (Convert and Deploy an Existing App). In the command line when I try to create the following scratch-org 
 
sfdx force:org:create -f config/project-scratch-def.json -a MyScratchOrg
I get this error:
ERROR running force:org:create:  You do not have access to the [ScratchOrgInfo] object.
Also, I am logged in DevHub.
I recently took the maintenance exam and failed. I tried to retake the  exam again. The problem found is related to WebAssessor will not allow me to create a new exam. The field for promotional  code indicates invalid promotional code. Based on the standard available information about maintenance release are supposed to be free. I opened a Case and waited for response. Today I called Technical support and then said they would need to reach out to someone within Salesforce Chattergroup what works on Certifications.

I have this very simple class..  
trigger RestrictContactByName on Contact (before insert, before update) {
    //check contacts prior to insert or update for invalid data
    For (Contact c : Trigger.New) {
        if(c.LastName == 'INVALIDNAME') {   //invalidname is invalid
            c.AddError('The Last Name "'+c.LastName+'" is not allowed for DML');
        }
    }
}
.. and the corresponding Test Class:  
@isTest
private class TestRestrictContactByName {

	@isTest static void metodoTest() {
		
		List listaContatti = new List();
		Contact c1 = new Contact(FirstName='Francesco', LastName='Riggio');
		Contact c2 = new Contact(LastName = 'INVALIDNAME');
		listaContatti.add(c1);
		listaContatti.add(c2);
		
		//insert listaContatti;
		
		// Perform test
        Test.startTest();
        Database.SaveResult [] result = Database.insert(listaContatti, false);
        Test.stopTest(); 
		
		c1.LastName = 'INVALIDNAME';
		update c1;
       		
	}
	
}

When I run the Test class from the Developer Console I get 100% of coverage on the RestrictContactByName class but, when I check the challenge on the trailhead it returns the error:

Challenge not yet complete... here's what's wrong: The 'RestrictContactByName' class did not achieve 100% code coverage via your test methods

Has someone had my same issue?
I found an error in a Trailhead, thought I'd help anyone else with the same problem. While trying to solve the Using Events to Add Markers to the Map section of the Build an Account Geolocation App trailhead I kept receiving an error about a null value. Debugging the code I found that the map variable in AccountMapController.js was null. This is because the accounts were loading faster than the Leaflet.js libraries. To get around this I changed the accountsLoaded function to recursively check if the map existed only add markers once the map was an object:

   if(component.get("v.map") != null){
            var map = component.get("v.map");

            alert(map);
            
            var accounts = event.getParam("accounts");
            for (var i=0; i<accounts.length; i++) {
                var account = accounts[i];
                var latLng = [account.Location__Latitude__s, account.Location__Longitude__s];
                L.marker(latLng, {account: account}).addTo(map);
            }  
        }else{
            accountsLoaded(component, event, null); 
        }
