In 'Analyze Your Data Over Time' in the Wave Desktop Exploration module, it says to Measure the sum of quantity (#) by chaning the Measure: Count of Rows to Sum of #. However, the # field does not exist so I cannot change it to this. Any help?

The Salesforce1 Collaboration on the Go challenge doesn't work if you use https instead of http in the link you post Chatter, despite what the instructions say. Re-posting it with an http link solves the issue.

Hope that this screen shot will help you to understan my problem.

Thanks in advance.
 
Is this happening to you? You're 100% sure you've done a Trailhead challenge right, but it just won't validate?

So here's the deal. We're doing a real-time API call to check your work, and sometimes, there might be existing configuration or code in your Developer Edition that interferes with our check, causing it to fail.

The best thing to do if you're 100% sure you're right is create a new Developer Edition and do the challenge again.

But wait, what about my badges?

No worries! Logging into Trailhead is a two-step process. Check out this image.

The login button is in the upper right, and the second login is on the unit page right before you do the challenge

In step (1), you tell Trailhead who you are. This is where your badges are stored. You can use your production username or any Developer Edition username for this step.

In step (2), you tell Trailhead where you're doing the challenge. This must be a Developer Edition.

Okay, I got the new DE. Now what?

So, just stay logged in at (1), and make a new Developer Edition to log in at (2). Do the challenge in the new Developer Edition and check it.

If it passes, it was probably something funky in your old DE. If it fails, time to revisit your challenge! Read the instructions again and make sure you didn't miss any steps.

But why would this happen?

It could be your DE is older, or it could be you've done some additional config or customization that is interfering with our check. 

Good luck!
Working on the Chatter Basics module for Trailhead, and having trouble uploading a photo to your Chatter profile?

Remember these tips:

1. Select a photo smaller than 8MB
2. Select a JPG, GIF, or PNG format

Still having trouble? Use this one! I tested this morning and it works. Plus it's adorable!

Working on the Accounts & Contacts module in Trailhead, but don't see the Contacts tab in your DE? No problem! Just select 'Sales' from the App Menu in the upper right corner.

Go to the upper right corner and select the drop down menu. Then select Sales from the drop down menu list.

Voila! The Contacts tab appears!

The Contacts tab is now available across the top of the screen.

I am in the module "Enable Field Service and Create Service Resources"
I am in the section:
Create Field Service Resources
Make yourself a service resource so you can bring service to your customers.
From the App Launcher, enter Service Resource in the Find an app or item box, then select Service Resources.


From the app launcher, I enter Service Resource but there are zero results...any ideas?

Completely stuck.

CHALLENGE ERROR: 
Challenge Not yet complete... here's what's wrong: 
Could not find a method named 'getIsClassic' in 'GetPropertiesApexController'. Check your code and try again.

The Lesson directives are clear, and everything works but the error persists on the challenge… I continued onto the next unit andeverything works… Except I get this error in the challenge… Note that this exercise was done on a brand new org.

It looks like a bug but hard to tell… Any work arounds?
I am not able to see Challenge section under Admin Beginner > Lightning Experience Customization > Create and Customize List Views.
Please take a look.
Thank you in advance !

I have completed the Unit but there is no Check Challenge button or Launch Area. It also shows as incomplete in my profile. 
What can I do to fix this?
I assume it's because there is no longer a Salesforce1 app. I've connected the rebranded Salesforce for Android app to my org, and set the security settings as indicated, but can't pass the challenge because:
Could not find the 'Salesforce1 for Android' Connected App with the specified settings.
Because, of course you couldn't, there is no such thing anymore.
The challenge requires me to block all users' access to the Salesforce1 for iOS app or the Salesforce1 for Android app. Under my connected apps i can only see "Salesforce for iOS" and this was the one I blocked. I have verified that my Salesforce1 app session has been revoked.

When I submit my challenge it gives the following error:

"It doesn't appear that you've blocked all users' access to either the Salesforce1 for iOS or Salesforce1 for Android app. Please check again."

How can I get around this error? Would the fact that my connected app is simply called "Salesforce for iOS" (missing the "1") have anything to do with it?
In the Salesforce1 Security and Compliance module, I am getting an error that I think is related to the name change of Salesforce1. 
Page: 
https://trailhead.salesforce.com/modules/salesforce1_security/units/salesforce1_security_connected_app 

Challenge Not yet complete... here's what's wrong: 
Could not find the 'Salesforce1 for Android' Connected App with the specified settings.

The Cennected App that is created is now called:  
Salesforce for Android

I double-checked my Connected App settings and believe they are correct, so I'd like to know if Trailhead is incorrectly looking for the wrong Connected App name. 

Thanks, 
Ryan 
I am not able to get the challenge to work on this module. Anyone else figure it out. It appears to completely ignore the changes or cant find the app. Message is: "Challenge Not yet complete... here's what's wrong: Could not find the 'Salesforce1 for Android' Connected App with the specified settings."

Checked it a dozen times, but no luck. It looks like perhaps the app name no longer has exactly the same name.
This unit is being pushed as intermediate even though it is missing critical steps towards making use of the material it is presenting, such as step-by-step information how to successfully push the metadata we create and make use of the permissions we are uploading.

As far as I can tell, I am successfully uploading the Customer_interaction_Big_Object.permissionSet through ForceIDE, as I get no errors after save to server, but then this permission set isn't available for me to assign to anyone when I look in the SFDC setup UI for permission sets.

And then I can't upload the data because the object isn't writable, presumably because I don't have permissions.

Morever, the sample "Apex" script isn't even valid Apex.  For examples:
* There shouldn't be any angle brackets in: <Customer_Interaction__b> bo = new Customer_Interaction__b();
* Strings should use single quotes, not double quotes: bo.Account__c = "001R000000302D3";
* Play_Duration__c was defined as a number, not text (and again, double quotes!): bo.Play_Duration__c = "25";

Doesn't anyone give these articles a test drive before publishing them to people who will rely on them?
Challenge says "To pass this challenge, block all users' access to the Salesforce1 for iOS app or the Salesforce1 for Android app."

"Instructions say: From Setup, enter Connected Apps in the Quick Find box, then select Connected Apps OAuth Usage.
Click Block on the row for Salesforce1 for Android or Salesforce1 for iOS.
When you’re ready to reenable access to the app, click Unblock."

Now as  instructed in some other Challenge I have installed the Salesforce1 App on my Smartphone, which is an Android and have logged in and did looking around and stayed logged.



 From Setup, I entered Connected Apps in the Quick Find box, then selected Connected Apps OAuth Usage.
I only see Salesforce1 for Android as that is the only one I am signed into and so there is no Salesforce1 for iOS.listed.
I Clicked Block on the row for Salesforce1 for Android and I am promptly kicked off of my Salesforce1 App on my Andriod phone.
The option the Salesforce1 for Android nrow are UNBLOCK and UNINSTALL

So I run the challenge before unblocking the Andriod and it fails:

Challenge Not yet complete... here's what's wrong:
It doesn't appear that you've blocked all users' access to either the Salesforce1 for iOS or Salesforce1 for Android app. Please check again.

OK why is this ??  Is the challenge expecting you to have both an active Salesforce1 for iOS to block AND an active Salesforce1 for Android to block at the same time ??  That is not possible for me to do both at the same time.

I know I blocked the Salesforce1 for Android because I was kicked out of Salesforce1 on the phone and the Salesforce1 for Android wnet from users = 1 to users = 0. 
I am on the last module of the Build a Discount Calculator trail. I have verified the first 4 steps and received the 50 points (everything was configured correctly). Now, when I try to verify my last step I am getting the following error:

Challenge Not yet complete... here's what's wrong: 
The 'Calculate Discount' custom button doesn't exist or isn't properly configured. Check the instructions.

I've verfied the creation of the button, it's on the correct page layout and I've tested the button- it gives me the correct discount percentage and discounted amount.

Any other ideas on what I should check? I'm at a loss.
Can someone please give the complete Visualforce page code? Cannot get mine to work.
