Salesforce Implementation: Measure Twice, Cut Once http://cloud4good.com/announcements/salesforce-implementation-measure-twice-cut/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=salesforce-implementation-measure-twice-cut http://cloud4good.com/announcements/salesforce-implementation-measure-twice-cut/#comments Tue, 15 Jul 2014 16:00:21 +0000 http://cloud4good.com/?p=6952 We are Salesforce experts who speak fluent nonprofit!

My parents liked to work with their hands – I learned to sew from my mother, and basic carpentry from my father. In both cases, the old adage of “measure twice, cut once” applied to what I was learning, and I often return to this principle when working with Salesforce. I’ve previously written about how organizations can support implementations for the long haul and considerations for best practice, but this blog is intended to be a reflection on how organizations can better “measure twice” during a Salesforce implementation and extend its functionality. Because in Salesforce, it’s easy to “cut once,” but cutting twice or more can sometimes mean substantial amounts of time and effort revising data, data architecture, and programming within the platform.

Work.com: Time for Another Look http://cloud4good.com/announcements/work-com-time-another-look/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=work-com-time-another-look http://cloud4good.com/announcements/work-com-time-another-look/#comments Mon, 07 Jul 2014 15:00:43 +0000 http://cloud4good.com/?p=6645 We are Salesforce experts who speak fluent nonprofit!

One of the biggest obstacles to using Work.com to effectively manage goals was that it wasn’t integrated with Salesforce.com, so there was no automated way to record progress - instead, someone had to manually go in and update progress against goals. Although not insurmountable, anything that requires manual entry should (in my opinion) be avoided like the plague! In the last year Salesforce.com has worked to address this shortcoming and added several important enhancements that make it worth taking another look at.

Even on a powerful platform like Salesforce, we’ve all had moments where we need a little bit more.
