As Salesforce has grown exponentially over the years, the ecosystem created has become much bigger than Salesforce itself. There is an estimated that Salesforce and its ecosystem of customers and partners will create 1 million jobs and generate $859 billion in GDP impact globally by 2022.
Through this growth within the ecosystem new careers have become possible. There are now business analysts, implementation consultants, developers and admins that have built their career on the Salesforce platform — and have been amazingly successful in the process.
While these positions have made lots of people from all walks of life successful, the positions are still relatively new within the traditional job market. And sometimes hard to explain to people outside of the space!
So, what is a Salesforce user?
A user is anyone who logs in to Salesforce. Users are employees at your company, such as sales reps, managers, and IT specialists, who need access to the company's records.
Every user in Salesforce has a user account. The user account identifies the user, and the user account settings determine what features and records the user can access. Each user account contains at least the following:
- Email Address
- User's First and Last Name
- Role (optional)
