A week ago, I installed Scott Hemmeter’s amazing app, Geopointe. Everything was going smoothly until I decided to manage the licenses I had assigned to the app. I successfully managed the licenses and tried to click the “Back to Previous Page” link, but something broke: Here’s a video of the problem in action: Managing Licenses Previous Page Link Is Broken. This is a story about the super-responsiveness of the salesforce.com support team. (I’m not including peoples’ names, but for any employees, it is Case 03580410. I submitted my case May 24, and the first response was received May 25. The first person, JW, sent an email asking me to clear my cache and change my browser.

Next weekend, March 20, 2010, Salesforce NA1 will be down for an extended (8-hour) maintenance window - the longest in memory - from 7pm 3/20 to 3am 3/21 (All times PST).

At the time, we used Solution 1 (below), but since then, other products have been released to help with this. Why is it even an issue? Surely we can download each file? Yes, but who wants to? Can't we do a Data Export and then upload those to Content? Yes, but all the files are renamed with their 15-character Ids, making renaming them all-but-impossible. salesforce.com and DreamFactory to the rescue! Solution 1 Summary: Use a script to rename all exported files. A (wonderful!) salesforce.com employee, Nick […]
