Last week I posted about the exciting HTTP Callout flow feature here. This functionality is super cool, but not everybody will need it.
I will discuss something simpler that everybody can use this week: Emojis in Salesforce. 👍
I learned about all the places I can use emojis when I attended the Florida Dreamin’ presentation in 2021 by Jonathan Linn. He delivered a presentation on Lightning configuration and showed that you could paste emojis virtually everywhere that accept text input (string) in Salesforce: Tab labels, quick action button labels, and formulas. I don’t think he talked about using emojis in flows, but a lightbulb went off with me when I saw his presentation. 💡
Here is a slide from his presentation. It still lives rent-free on Slack. 🤳
“I would like to display a red arrow when a field value is decreased and a green arrow if it is increased. I tried using images in formula fields, but I’m trying to avoid creating two new separate fields. Is there a more efficient way to do this❔”
Leveraging the video screen-share capabilities of Slack, I recorded a video response. 🎥
I share a lot of content. It is impossible to tell what will go viral. It almost feels like spontaneous, simple content wins over polished and planned content. 📜
The moral of the story is: Go to Dreamin’ events, folks. You will learn practical tips that you can easily implement to make your users’ lives easier. 🥳
