Salesforce Admins Have Many Ways to Learn at Dreamforce 2019


As a Salesforce Admin, you never stop learning. Between each year’s three releases, you have a network of #AwesomeAdmin professionals who organize Salesforce Saturdays, Community Group gatherings, and amazing events to help you learn. And, there is no better time to embrace your commitment to learning than at Dreamforce! #AwesomeAdmins will have many, many ways to learn—in-person and online. Read on to find out all the ways you can expand your knowledge!

The #AwesomeAdmin Keynote

The Salesforce Admin Keynote should be the cornerstone of your Dreamforce experience. The energy is amazing, the stories are phenomenal, and the demos are inspiring. Hosted by Salesforce co-founder Parker Harris, the #AwesomeAdmin Keynote is the must-attend event for a Salesforce Admin. We’ll show you how you can use the full power of the Salesforce Platform to drive impact at your company, in your career, and in your communities. You’ll see live demos of the latest features in action, learn practical tips from your peers, and leave with the insight and inspiration to blaze your trail with Salesforce.

If you’re attending Dreamforce in person, make sure you bookmark the keynote here. If you’re going to follow along from home, catch the entire keynote as it is live-streamed on the Salesforce Admins Facebook page.

Choose your own learning adventure with the Admin Track

This year, the Admin Track has 149 theater and breakout sessions! Twenty-minute theater and forty-minute breakout sessions allow you to access the very best knowledge that your #AwesomeAdmin peers have to share. Expect to take in best practices, tips, and plenty of inspiration. And there’s something for everyone, no matter which topics you’re passionate about!

We have sessions for all levels (beginner, intermediate, advanced) across all features and topics: Lightning, Change Management & Adoption, Process Automation, Reports & Dashboards, Security, Data Quality, Einstein, Mobile, Einstein Analytics, Service Cloud, Community Cloud, Integration Cloud (including MuleSoft).

(Note: This beautiful Lightning chart shows 129 sessions because we have space for repeated and fun sessions. We picked a total of 129 sessions from the Call for Proposals which was open July 15–Aug 16. See more about how we picked in this post.)

While most of the Admin Track breakout sessions will be on the 2nd floor of Moscone West, we’ll also have Admin breakout sessions at the Hilton that we’re working on having a cool theme around. More on that as we get closer to Dreamforce.

To find these sessions, select Roles in the left navigation and check Salesforce Administrator to see all sessions tagged for Admins. If you can’t be there in person, join us online! Follow Salesforce Admins on Twitter and Facebook to get notified when we live-stream from the Admin Theater.

Nonstop action in the Admin Theater—Learn while having fun

The Admin Meadow, located in the Trailhead Zone, is the home base for Admins during Dreamforce. Join us to get your questions answered by on-site Salesforce experts, learn tips and tricks from fellow Admins, and generally nerd out about Salesforce.

Visit six demo stations that cover some of the most important topics for Admins like Automation, Lightning Experience, Adoption & Onboarding, and Reports and Dashboards. Each station will be staffed by Admins like you who know their stuff and love to help others learn!
