I got a very short event week for you. Why is that you ask? Well I don’t want to get too ahead of myself, but Dreamforce is starting next week and everyone at Salesforce is anticipating and planning for that! Eekk, I’m so excited! Additionally, as a heads up, all of these events are on Thursday, November 5th. So sit back, open up your calendar, and let’s get planning for Thursday!
Our first event has us up bright and early at 7am (PST)! Transactional SMS and Delivery Receipts will demonstrate how to use SMS API’s to run transactional use cases at a scale and how to track their delivery. There will also be a demonstration on Transactional API’s, Message Contact API and various other systems. There will be a Q&A session and customer examples too! This is a great webinar for those wanting to learn more on how to utilize SMS, since now it is THE tool to use since we are all at home.
Next up we have Drive Growth on a Unified Platform for Smart, Integrated Sales Planning and Execution at 9am (PST). This event is for our Salesforce clients out there who are interested in learning more about Consumer Goods Cloud. This cloud is part of the Customer 360 CRM Platform which gives your team a 360 view of your customers experience. If you are working with less team members than before, need faster and flexible planning or shift what your execution looks like, then sign up!
Sales people and sales teams this next event is for you! At 11am (PST) Skill Up for Virtual Selling: How Equifax is Helping their Sales Reps Maximize Customer Connections is here to help you adjust to business sales dramatic changes. Regardless of your skills and how long you’ve been selling, it’s helpful to know how to create and close deals in our virtual environment. You will hear from experts from both Salesforce and Equifax on how they are doing this.
Finally at 2:30pm (PST) the Los Angeles, CA Salesforce Nonprofit User group is hosting Virtual: Rollup Magic with DLRS. The Rollup Summary Field is a great way to summarize data about child records on the parent record and the guest speaker will teach you how to create this tool from the Lookup Relationship using the DLRS tool. This is a great trick for Admins, but make sure you pay attention, as this can be a bit tricky to use.
Wow look at that we are already at the recap! We had a busy week last week starting with *How Direct-to-Consumer Media Businesses Can Maximize Engagement with Tableau* an event about using your data to drive engagement and growth to drive consumer engagement. We got a sneak peak at the new features on the Marketing Cloud platform in Marketing Cloud October 2020 New Feature Overview. Nonprofits got to see how to utilize the free Program Management Module in Introduction to Managing your Programs on Salesforce. Then we had our largest event of the week, AMER Partnerforce Live: Growing Together, for all of the Salesforce partners out there!
Then we got to take it easy with the rest of the events that week. In *Favorite Features and Ideas Virtual Happy Hour* we got to share ideas, features, participate in demos, spend time reviewing job openings, troubleshooting and socializing. The Canadian Salesforce Admin group went through the admin features released in this Highlight and the Salary Survey in Winter 21 Highlights and Candian Salary Survey Results. Finally, we ended the week with *October Halloween Happy Hour *aka a virtual Halloween Party. Did you see any great costumes? Tweet us @mkpartners and let us know your thoughts!
Also, make sure to let us know if you think there are any events worth mentioning and what event you are excited about this upcoming week. And, as always, we will see you in the cloud.
