About this event


MEETING WRAP UP

We welcomed trailblazers from around New Zealand, Australia and also USA today!

I am hoping to share the meeting recording - there may have been a Zoom glitch as the recording is still "processing", so check back here again later to see if the link is here :)

Info from the meeting chat:

Stephen Stanley:

You can get a good overview of Flow Orchestrator in this Trailhead badge: https://trailhead.salesforce.com/en/content/learn/modules/orchestrator-basics

 If you use Vs Code, then create the new flow in setup first as the Flow consists of two objects - the flow metadata and the flow definition, before copying the XML from the previous flow into the new one. You can also save As new flow then delete the bits you don’t want, which can be safer!

More free learning available at the end of April with TrailblazerDX. Free online session from 27-28th April PST, (April 28-29, 3am start in NZST) - with about 40 sessions streaming live from 08:00-17:00 PST. Around 80 sessions from the in-person experience will be recorded and available to watch later. The in person conference is at Moscone in downtown San Francisco with early bird discounts. You can also add a 4-day learning bootcamp that includes the opportunity to take 2 certifications before the start of the conference (note the bootcamp is onsite in San Francisco only)

SPRING 22 SALESFORCE RELEASE HIGHLIGHTS WITH MEL MACDONALD

The Salesforce SPRING 22 release goes live into production instances in mid Feb, so it will be the perfect time to explore the highlights with our beloved very own SF Welly local, Mel Macdonald. Mel will demo her favourite new features to help you get on track with all the latest and greatest functionality.
Mel is back from parental leave and I am delighted to have her feature in our virtual meeting, she's our most popular release highlights presenter and has been much missed while on leave.


There will be time for demos and Q&A. All our extended SF Welly Ohana welcome to attend! We will also be welcoming Rebecca D'Arcy and the Christchurch Salesforce community to this jointly hosted meeting.
