A strange thing is happening in the Email address field of our Contacts. After deleting an email address on saving the change the email address reappears in the Email address field. What is happening is
  1. Email address entered into Contact email field and saved
  2. Later need to delete the entered email address and leave the field blank.
  3. Click ‘Edit’ button or double click on Email address field
  4. Delete entered email address
  5. Click ‘Save’
  6. Deleted Email address reappears in the Email field.
I can edit an entered email address and save and the new edited email address remains in the field.  I can also delete the old email address, enter a totally new email address and save.  The totally new email address remains in the field.  This is all good.

The problem is just when I want to leave the email address blank.
I have tried using Firefox and Chrome but the problem continues with either brouser.
Contact Email address field is not a mandatory/required field.  Therefore, so we should be able to delete an email address when we know the email address is no longer active and no replacement email address is provided.
Can you suggest what is happening and what needs to be done to correct the situation.

Hi Geeks,

I am facing an error while checking the below challenge.

Your team's doing great, but how does next month look? Build a lens to visualize the product sales pipeline. Start by exploring the DTC Opportunity dataset. Under Bars, group by Close Date, and then group by Forecast Category. Change the measure from Count of Rows to Sum of # (quantity). Filter to show only open opportunities. Change the chart type to Timeline, and note that Forecast Category is now represented as bar segments. Then save the lens as Sales Pipeline Overview in the My Exploration app you created earlier.
  • Dataset: DTC Opportunity
  • Bars: Close Date (Year-Month)
  • Bar Segments: Forecast Category
  • Bar Length: Sum of #
  • Filters: Closed false
  • Chart Type: Timeline
  • Lens Name: Sales Pipeline Overview
  • App: My Exploration

I'm looking at integrating Hubspot with my Salesforce, however I have never used HubSpot before. I intend to introduce Hubspot to my marketing team only. Is will be used solely by my marketing department to start creating lead records in HubSpot and integrate as well as synchronize those records in Salesforce. Also I'm looking to allow my marketing users to create campaigns, marketing e-mails, newsletters etc. in HubSpot and integrate such records in Salesforce. In order to become familiar with the integration process between the two systems I'm currently looking to find the most recent issues between HubSpot and Salesforce in terms of integration. Please share your experience and resources as I'm unaware what to expect in terms of issues related to the HubSpot and Salsforce integration.

Hello Folks,

When receiving the "Credential Status" email from Salesforce (after going to https://t.co/xfXDlCbX1f) for some reason (?) my Trailhead Profile appears as "not linked" (blank):
Here is a screenshot of the portion of the received email:

User-added image

What do you think the reason is?
Salesforce has set a deadline to resolve this: 14th-Decembre-2018
Any clue?

My Webassessor seems to be linked already (as displayed above on the screenshot).

I can see that my Trailhead settings show my linked account as "inactive" (?) - I do not know what that means.

User-added image
I have tried clicking the button "connect or merge" and I have re-provided my login credentials for my users but it says "Whoops, looks like there was a problem. Account already linked to this profile."

How can I resolve this? (Salesforce Trailhead Support has not replied my Case#00028586 which I created on the 14th November!)

Thank you very much.

We are implementing SalesForce right now and looking for some guidance/help from you on the integration part with PeopleSoft. The plan is to send PeopleSoft data to SF when it gets added/modified. Can you please help me the way(s) that you guys have done this already? Please help.

If any other details needed, please let me know.

Hello all,

While preparing for the sales cloud certificate, I came across a question which seems debatable to me. I find in the documentation of work.com that A is possible. However, C and D seem to be also true (although the correct way to phase D would be to skip the word "coaching"). Can you please help and tell me which options are true and why?

How can you use Work.com to increase the productivity of your sales reps?(Choose 2 answers) 
A. Feedback can be requested for the entire sales team
B. Coaching statistics can be linked to reports
C. Feedback can be given publicly or privately
D. Coaching goals can be linked to reports

Hello All,
I need to be able to update an Azure database from Salesforce.  Mainly for Cases and Lawyers, when cases or lawyers get updated I need to update the Azure DB as well.
I have seen the examples that talk about Azure to Salesforce, but I have not seen anything talking about Salesforce to Azure.
I have looked at both the Salesforce WCF and RestAPI https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.api_rest.meta/api_rest/
But again these go from Azure to Salesforce.

Is it possible to go the other way?  What would be the best approch to this as I have seen many differnt approches to connecting.
We don't want any syncing of data, just to make a .NET call when Salesforce records get updates ect.. to update our Azure DB.

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");

            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);
