Practice Reports and Dashboards with the Salesforce.com Analytics Workbook
We’ve long seen that practice is the key to improving one’s skills at Reports and Dashboards in Salesforce.com. To that end, we were pleased to discover a new self-paced training guide from Salesforce’s Quick Tutorials series tucked away on page 65 of the Winter ’12 Release Notes. It is called “Analytics Workbook – Get the Most Out of Your Salesforce Data” and you can download it here. With it, in a step-by-step format, you’ll practice creating Summary Reports, Matrix Reports, Combination Charts, Custom Table Components, Custom Summary Formulas, and more. Most impressive with the tutorials is how they step into intermediate and advanced topics pretty quickly, making the Workbook useful for even long-tenured admins. In particular I appreciated the PARENTGROUPVAL() summary function- woohoo! Enjoy!
