Going completely crazy..


How can I make this happend so it actually happends.

Want to have a button which when I press a conformation Email is sent to the lead ID and a status field is changed to contacted.

Am I making this to hard on myself or what?

Please help.
Hi there.

Here in Iceland we have a special social security number in the format of example; 1802852069.
The first 6 numbers are date born as in DD MM YY. I am creating a formula which automatically puts this in value into the birthday field using workflow and field update.

The code that I use is - kennitala = social secuirty number
DATE (MID (Kennitala__c , 5 , 2 )+1900 , MID(Kennitala__c , 3 , 2) , MID(Kennitala__c ,1,2))

the error that i get is; Error: Incorrect parameter for function +(). Expected Number, Date, DateTime, received Text

this field kennitala is a text field. I tried putting Value in front of the MID's but that didn't work.

I used this code to create a formula field and that worked, so just don't understand why it dosn't in the field update.

Any help will be well appriciated
Thanks in advance

Hi all.

I have been looking into the possibilties of adding multiple objects such as creating a button on a custom object related list in opportunities which is titled "Add multiple staff". From that button I would be transfer'd into a select search type of window (Similar to "Add product") where I can add by a checkbox hundreds of staff in a second.

Has anybody tried something like this? And/or can you link me to some solutions?

Thanks in advance

I am building a staff system for my company and have been trying out this one click report custom button.

Is it possible? I thought maybe it was possible just by using URL and merge fields.

Has anybody ever done something like this or know what the possabilities are?

I am in a pickle. I am using the appexchange program Clicktools and I am sending e-mails to my contacts for them to verify infomation and/or change them.

I am using an e-mail template inside Salesforce. I just take the surveys url fx; http://clicktools.com/survey.php=?b1l3l2asf2 and add merge fields values as such;

http://clicktools.com/survey.php=?b1l3l2asf2&q1={!Contact_firstname} ..........
q1 = question nr 1
 and .... = so on and so on.
The thing is some of the characters in my naitive language (Icelandic) are not available through URLs. Special characters such as Æ, Þ, á and Ó seem to dissapear and the value that comes up when the contact press's his link will be correct but all those special characters come up as gibberish box symbols. I was wondering if there are any url encodeing options through those email templates. I know they aren't used every day to send out links with syntex's in them but in ClickTools they have this !urlencode{syntexs} option which allows these special characters to appear valid and I am wondering if salesforce offers a similer thing.

If not, how do you recommend I take care of this problem.

Best regards

Hello all... while I can't particulary pay for this job...

Looking for someone who might be able to whip up a custom S-control...

The control would need to mimic a button and would need to be available on a case's general details view.

When clicked, it would need to send a presribed email template to a prescribed user.

I want this to be automated to speed the process up.
