Unsubscribe Link 2.2 (on AppExchange)
Allow Recipients to Unsubscribe From All Email Sent via Salesforce

A custom object tracks when someone unsubscribes to allow you to report on it.
See How It Works

first year it was sold out. I must admit, I was pretty pumped. Not only was
this the first Salesforce-related conference I was attending, but I was excited
to get a glimpse at the developer side of the Salesforce landscape. I may have

The experience of becoming a Salesforce Administrator can be a whirlwind of new information, building relationships with your fellow administrators and most of all, trying to develop a thorough understanding of the Salesforce stratosphere so you can best serve your user base. As someone who has essentially learned Salesforce Administration backwards (I received the title of Salesforce Admin, then scrambled to learn how it works), I can vouch for having encountered some white-knuckled, fist-clenching troubleshooting challenges. At first, I allowed myself to succumb to my frustration. After all, how could I not have all the answers? However, in my short time as a Salesforce Admin, I have discovered that not only am I not alone, but there are a ton of resources at my finger tips to help me as I navigate through my learning. Throughout my experience, I have picked up 3 tips that have been essential to my process:
Hi! Just a note to say that it’s sunny out and we don’t know how to handle that. We’re not blogging as much right now while we cope. Maya Peterson, Thomas George and I will be presenting at Portland’s amazing Forcelandia conference in August 8 & 9. We’ll have content to post after that!
