In this training series you will learn how to configure Salesforce to fulfill business needs, in preparation for well paying employment. This third course in the series will give you the skills you need to customize the Salesforce platform to work with any company's business process. Though the Salesforce system does a lot for companies "out of the box," it is customization that allows the tool to work effectively for any given company.
Aspiratech is a registered Salesforce consulting and ISV partner, and as such we design and implement the system for companies large and small, including non-profits. We are leading experts in the field, which you can see by simply Googling "Salesforce Training."
As part of every Salesforce implementation, we train both users and at least one internal System Administrator (Sys Admin).
This training series has effectively trained hundreds of new Sys Admins to take on real world duties upon which their companies depend, and has helped many attain certification by providing a strong foundation upon which they could build.
You should plan on working on this series an hour a day for 3-4 weeks to effectively cover all the material. Going through the series a second time, simply watching the videos on the second pass, is also advised. Frequent exposure is key during the training period.
This training series will help prepare you for the System Administrator certification track, unlike other Salesforce courses that purport to be "complete," but which in fact focus on the Developer track and leave out a large portion of what is needed for a Sys Admin. Developer is a track that will not lead to either Sys Admin positions or highly paid consulting positions, and is only appropriate for those who intend to go on to become apex coders. This course is intended for people who never want to have to configure an API or deal with writing code syntax.
That said, there is no substitute for getting the most recent Salesforce supplied study guide (webpage linked to within the course) to actually study for the exam itself, just as when you were in school you had to supplement in class learning with extra study for end of semester exams.
Here is an email we received from a student about using this training to get her Sys Admin certification:
"I wanted to let you know that I successfully passed my admin 201 certification. I am looking forward to write my 401 exam as well... I know that certification will help me in securing a job. I highly recommended your course to my friends. Only because of your course and watching it several times and practice it several times, I was able to grasp knowledge. Thank you very much. Best, Padma"
Starting salaries for employed consultants in the industry are typically $40-60/hr, depending on your region, and independent consultants who sign their own clients often make several times those amounts. If you have had an interest in expanding your career options by adding a practical technology proficiency to your skill set, Salesforce System Administration is where many non-technical people find their opportunity. For those who have no interest in embarking upon a technology specialist career path, the SFDC Sys Admin skill set is also greatly in demand and in short supply in many non-technical positions and will make you an indispensable part of any work team.
Note: It is expected that you will have access to an instance of SFDC you can experiment and practice in within this course. Salesforce provides a free Developer org at:
Developer dot salesforce dot com/signup
(Udemy no longer allows us to make this a live link, so unfortunately you're going to have to do some manual work to get to the right page on the Salesforce site to get this from them... is also posted within the second lecture in this course)
-- Note that you should use a personal email address as your username when signing up for a developer edition account, so that your work email address will remain available for your company instance username.
If your company does not have Salesforce yet, but is considering implementing it, get a free 30-day Trial org on the Salesforce website. You will then have the added benefit that work you do toward genuine goals during this course can be preserved for use by your company (unlike work saved in a developer org), possibly encouraging your employer to allow you to work on the course during your regular work day or even purchase the training series for you.
Now that you know the basics of creating a custom field, let’s consider a special custom field that allows you to connect records on one object to records on any object in the database structure. Lookup fields.
As we continue our way through the examination of different types of special fields, let’s take a look at creating fields that can summarize data on other records, Roll-up Summary fields.
In this lecture you will learn how to create a special field that will make data entry easier for users and reporting more meaningful for managers, picklists.
For orgs using Salesforce Lightning experience, go one step further than sales processes by guiding sales rep behavior.
Once you’ve created the fields you want in order to capture the data important to your business process, you need to arrange those fields on the page in a meaningful and organized display for data entry. You do so by customizing Page Layouts.
Now that you know how to customize the appearance of fields on a record page, it’s time to learn how to customize the fields that show from related records as well. In this lesson we will be customizing related lists.
