I'm working on the Wave Analytics Trail- specifically the "Calculating with the Compare Table Module:" https://developer.salesforce.com/trailhead/wave_desktop_exploration/wave_calculating_with_the_compare_table

When creating Column C, you're supposed to click the top right of the column to add a formula.  The problem is that the forumula selection gets cut off and there's no way to scroll down.  I've tried changing the settings on my display and my extended monitor.  I've also tried clicking the box next to the X at the top right of my browser to shink the screen.  No matter what I do, when I try opening up the column, it's getting cut off after "rename this column" and obviously "edit formulas and format" is the next line, which I need to click to continue.

Is anybody else having this problem?  I'm using Chrome as my browser.

Any ideas or suggestions to remedy this embarassing problem would be appreciated.


I recently obatined my Admin Certification through self-stud.  What should I focus on next?  Advanced Admin? Developer?

I'm currently not a SFDC Administrator, I'm a Mortgage Banker looking for a career change.  Since I have no practical SFDC Admin experience, I'm hoping that a few additional certifications will help me.  I'm focusing on applying for Admin/Jr Admin jobs with Banks/Mortgage Companies/Financial firms to leverage my 10+ years experience.

Thanks in advance.

A little background on me- I'm currently not a Salesforce Admin... I'm in a field unrealted to IT.  I'm trying to pass the Salesforce Certified Admin 201 test so that I may possibly get a job as a Jr Admin somewhere. I failed my 1st attempt at the 201 exam and am not confident enough at this point to take it again.  Since I don't have the luxury of having practical Admin experience, I've been learning on my own in Dev Orgs with online learning materials.  Here are the things I've studied/completed:
- SFDC Admin Trails (and other trails except developer)
- Focus on Force (Study Guide and 201 practice exams) http://focusonforce.com/
- Admin Zero to Hero http://www.adminhero.com/zero-hero/
- Udacity Salesforce Training: https://www.udacity.com/course/intro-to-point-click-app-development--ud162
- Salesforce Fundamentals https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.fundamentals.meta/fundamentals/
- Salesforce CRM Definitive Handbook: https://play.google.com/store/books/details/Paul_Goodey_Salesforce_CRM?id=POfBGSjfaikC

I just discovered the "How to Be Successful with Salesforce" handbook, however it's over 5300 pages, so I'm wondering if diving into this is the right thing to do or if I'll just get lost in minutia.  Here's the link: http://resources.docs.salesforce.com/198/13/en-us/sfdc/pdf/sf.pdf

I completed the Admin Trails before any other training materials, so I'm going to re-do them in a new Dev Org to see if I retain more.

If there are any other study resources that will help me pass the 201, please let me know.  I understand that most Admins take this test after being on the job for several months, but I don't have that option as I don't think I'll be able to get an Admin job without being certified since I have no IT experience and no previous experience as an Admin .
