How Salesforce Admins Prep for Dreamforce

By

As a Salesforce Admin we are on the go, nonstop. From meetings to discuss process improvements, to end user training, I know that we will be busy right up to the first day of Dreamforce-  So with a little over one month to get all your Dreamforce things in order I wanted to give you a simple three item checklist to help you prepare for Dreamforce.

1. Use Trailhead to get Dreamforce ready!

Did you know there is an entire Trailhead Trail devoted to getting you Dreamforce ready? That’s right! In just 30 minutes you can learn- What is Dreamforce? Dreamforce is the amazing, must-attend annual Salesforce user conference. People gather from all over the world to share ideas, learn new skills, connect, and be inspired. With over 1500 breakout sessions, keynotes from thought leaders, an incredible expo, and a rockin’ gala, Dreamforce is the world’s largest technology conference. Simply put, it’s THE place to be for the Salesforce community.

2. Join a Dreamforce Community group

Whether you are new to Dreamforce or a seasoned pro, the Salesforce community has plenty of resources to help you maximize your time, your packing, and your experience.

This year we have made it even easier for you to find your peers at Dreamforce by setting up groups based on role, industry, and theme. Just click on the Dreamforce tab in the Success community and join a group today!

3. Connect on Chatter

Now that you are all signed up for sessions (or maybe you still are working on that), connect with Dreamforce presenters on the session feed. Navigate to any session that you are attending or would like to attend and start interacting with the presenters. Find out what topics they will be covering and maybe get a sneak peek at some of their draft slides.

If you are a presenting at Dreamforce, the chatter feed is a great way to connect with attendees early. Find out what questions or topics they are hoping will be covered. In addition, you can share draft versions of slides. But the collaboration doesn’t end there. Use the session chatter feed to collect questions during your presentation and get them answered.
