When One Teaches, Two Learn! – Admin Excercise​ 7

When One Teaches, Two Learn! – Admin Excercise​ 7

Last Updated on July 26, 2021 by Rakesh Gupta

I was skeptical at first; but, it was an eye opener – what a difference a teaching style makes! One of my mentees has been imploring me to guide her towards Salesforce mastery by assigning use cases. Within a few weeks, she has gained the level of confidence on the platform that neither she nor I expected.

And, she is not alone! Based on my experience with her, I have been posting one use case daily. The response from Ohana has been impressive, to say the least! So, let me take this opportunity to thank everyone for their encouraging emails and positive responses on my initiative to post one use case daily!

Do something every day that brings you closer to your goals.

Take a small step every day – work hard and smart my friends and, trust me, one day you will become a Salesforce genius! This strategy has not failed me or anyone I know! How about you?

With that said, I am happy to announce that recently I was featured on Salesforce TrailheaDX website. Once again, thanks everyone for all your support.

My main goal to post one use case daily is to provide opportunities to tackle hands-on exercises and sharpen your thinking skills so you can streamline your abilities to design solutions seamlessly.  

So, ready? Here is the game plan – take bite-size use cases and work on solving them. If you are stuck or get frustrated, reach out to me – I will guide you towards the solution but not solve it for you!

Why just me? It is very likely that a fellow-trailblazer may be your guide instead – remember that, when one teaches, two learn!! So, get the ball rolling and knock out the following use cases!!

Check out the previous exercises:

Hands-on Excercise

Donna Serdula’s confidence, as a System Administrator at GoC, continues to
build – Woohoo!! In a short time-span, she has been inching from being a novice
to becoming a pro! Donna now has the following requirements to tackle:

  1. If there is a character ‘a’ in an Email field between the 5th character and the 12th character then, it should trigger a validation rule and not allow the user to save the record.
  2. On an Opportunity, if the Stage is changed to Closed Won from Negotiation then the ‘Next step’ field must be populated – i.e., it cannot be empty. Bypass this validation rule for a user with System Administrator profile!

Help Donna to solve this requirement. Not only that, share with her different ways via which this requirement can be solved in Salesforce. And, last but not least, identify the best solution and explain why you believe it is the best solution!
