Additional application settings were added to Microsoft teams in a recent release, giving you more control over how you want MS Teams to behave. Check it out by clicking on your user icon, then Application: Read more
Let’s be real–Microsoft Teams is still in its infancy. While a new release–with new features–arrives every few weeks, there is still a lot of room for improvement! (By the way, you can check recent release notes under Chat->T-Bot->Release Notes.) As you explore and use Teams, you may think of improvements or new feature ideas. It’s very easy to submit them, and you absolutely should! These ideas funnel back to the User Feedback website for Microsoft Teams. Not only can you submit ideas (or bugs, for that matter)–you can also stay up-to-date and vote on existing & popular ideas.
Does your organization use views with just too many records? This quick tip makes navigating those beastly views much easier–and you don’t even need to create a filter! Now, the example view I’m working from only has 25 records, but this tip is especially helpful for views with more records. Read more
Mapping Fields can be a huge time-saver if you are frequently qualifying leads or creating new contacts from an account record, for example.

I do suggest having both the Source & Target forms open so you can check your work–field names can be tricky!
It’s actually possible to change the default filter on a report after it’s been created, but the feature is tucked away and easy to miss! I usually work with reports from the Advanced Find window (below), but you do not have the option to update the default filter using this method! Read more
The Salesforce.com workbench is an amazingly useful tool when you want to deal with directly with the data on the backend.

Another function of the workbench is to do imports much like you would with Data Loader. It’s a bit more “programmer friendly” than data loader (which is more “standard user” friendly) in my opinion, but nevertheless a keeper.
Go ahead and login to the workbench like before. This time, go to the data menu though…. Here you can insert, update, upsert, or delete. If not familiar with these, you may want to stop as you can do some serious damage to your database. Read more
Just a final tip here, wanted to let you know about the different settings that you can manage from the workbench that are very helpful for administrators when importing data through the workbench.
Under the workbench main menu item, choose “settings”. Read more
Did you know that you can filter and sort your History and Pending tabs like you would an Excel sheet?
First thing is to enable filtering within the tab. Right click and make sure that “Filter” is checked.
Now, use the drop down column headers with the tab to filter and sort;
You can always tell there is a Filter enabled by looking at the bottom strip of the tab, like this;
Be aware! The filter will persist, even through a restart of GoldMine! To release the filter, you must click the “X” on the left of the Filter notification. And don’t forget about that super-cool right-click | Output To…
