This week two guests from our Salesforce User Research team stop by to give Admins the 411 on conducting user research. What is user research you ask? Good question! Mabel and Kathy give us insight into how we gather customer feedback at Salesforce and give you some tips on doing user research of your own. This is a fascinating episode and wait until you hear the Lightning Round!
