I can't believe it's already the 1 year anniversary of The Everyday Admin! I set up the website on October 24th 2018 and published my very first post "An inaugural event and a debut speaker…InspireEast 2018" on October 26th 2018. I'd never set up a website before, never used WordPress, never written a blog post. … Continue reading It’s my birthday! The Everyday Admin turns 1…
Activities Related Lists - another feature to please the Classic diehards among us...(check out my post on Lightning "full view" here if you're interested in turning Lightning into Classic 2.0). In the Summer '19 release, we were granted the ability to select the default Activity view, choosing from the Lightning only expandable activity timeline or … Continue reading Back to Classic part 2: Activities Related Lists View

That was the situation I was in a few days ago when thinking about the new Custom Notification Builder. My work Org is still Classic (shhh!), but I hone my Lightning skills … Continue reading Summer 19′ new feature alert! Have you combined Flow & custom notifications yet?

Not only does it make the related list more visible, it also shortens and simplifies the page layout when compared to Classic. However, I appreciate that transitioning to a new interface can be tough, and … Continue reading Time saving tips: Back to Classic…? (A Summer 19′ release highlight)
What does Will Smith have to do with the Salesforce Summer 19' release? Well nothing really; I just wondered how many other people think of his 2005 hit song when they hear the word "switch"???

When I sat down to write this post, it became increasingly apparent that what made the Salesforce World Tour in London so special was far more than just the event, it was the people and the sense that we are all Trailblazers. I could easily sit here and write about the great venue, the event … Continue reading Salesforce World Tour London: We Are All Trailblazers
Even if you only use the standard price book, the option to 'Add Price Book' will still appear as an option. This seems quite misleading and confusing for users; it's also a button that's not needed and in my book that makes it clutter. There's a fairly simple solution to this: the 'Add Price Book' … Continue reading Only using the standard price book? You can hide the option to ‘Add Price Book’!
A few weeks ago I realised it was time to hide the Classic report builder. For what I need in my current role, I can happily use the Lightning report builder and not feel that I'm missing any functionality. If I don't need the Classic report builder anymore then my users definitely don't! You might … Continue reading It’s time to start letting go…how to hide the Classic report builder
