DREAMFORCE 2021

Passage Technology was thrilled to be a sponsor and host a Dreamforce 2021 session. Dreamforce featured so many inspiring stories and presentations, and we were proud to be a part of it. We know there was a lot to take in, so we’re providing a link to our session, #LowCodeLove: Defeat Rollup Limitations with Clicks not Code, in case you missed it.

#LowCodeLove: Defeat Rollup Limitations with Clicks not Code

Did you know that when you use Rollup Helper, you don’t need a master-detail relationship or Apex, Process Builder, or Flows? Plus the results are flexible—use them in workflow rules, validation rules, or formula fields. Watch our Dreamforce session to see how.


We wanted to share this interesting stat with you: A recent Harvard Business Review study reports 62% of customers think having knowledgeable employees is the third most important aspect needed for a company to provide good customer service.

At Passage Technology, our goal is to put the customer at the center of everything we do. And that’s why we have developed our Knowledge Base, so you can find the information that you need, when you need it. Get the full details here. Finally, be sure to check out our new Resource Library, which includes guides, data sheets, and demos.

Hope your fall is full of pumpkin spice and everything nice!

App News & Updates

New! Prioritize Tasks within other Apps or Packages

Now you can use Prioritization Helper components to help you prioritize tasks within other apps or packages in your org.

  • Work.com component: Easily prioritize tasks inside of your Workspace Command Center package. Tasks can be edited on the spot and are responsive to location changes via the Workplace Command Center’s location dropdown.
  • Milestones PM+ component: You can prioritize your Project Tasks inside of our project management app, Milestones PM+ (free or paid). Project Tasks can be edited without leaving the tab and filtered to a single project’s tasks by placing the component on a Project’s record page.

Note: These components are provided with no additional charge, however, Prioritization Helper will need to be installed for these components to work. The image below shows the prioritization field configuration interface from the base Prioritization Helper package.
