Ask PT About Viewing Open Cases on Salesforce Contact or Account Level

2022/11/11

Dear PT, 

Salesforce® functionality will let you view open Cases within your org. However, sometimes there are situations where it would be useful to view this information on a more granular level, for specific Contacts or Accounts. How could our company set up this at-a-glance list view, which also has filters for priority and status?

Ask PT About Creating Hierarchy Rollups in Salesforce Without Coding

2022/07/28

Dear PT, 

We need to better aggregate our data so various business functions can create insights. On a number of Objects, we need a way to easily rollup records scattered across numerous child, parent, and grand-parent hierarchies—for example, Accounts. However, our company has limited developer resources internally. So when we need a solution, we have to pay for outsourcing. This can be expensive, but often it is more expensive to not obtain that solution, in terms of productivity and competitiveness. Are there other options to coding?

Ask PT About Listing the Primary Contact on the Account in Salesforce

2022/05/26

Dear PT, 

With all of the Accounts our company manages, there is usually a point of contact who is the primary go-to person for the relationship. However, sometimes we engage a different (or wrong) Contact, bypassing the key point person. This happens with both human interactions and automated solutions. It may lead to confusion, miscommunication, and missed opportunities for all involved. How can we better address these situations?
