#Zapier is an amazing company — the offering is robust and grows (seemingly) daily; they take security seriously, and there are lots of little signs that this is an org-cultural value of the highest importance.
That said, when looking at declarative point-and-click integrations, if it’s App X to Zapier to App Z, isn’t Salesforce to Office 365 even simpler?
I’ve been tending to the training needs of a cohort of users with widely divergent skill sets. So the AppExchange TrailTracker offering has been a god-send. And I have a Process Builder automation flow triggered by the creation of a new instance of the junction object User-Badge, which happens when I curate a Trailmix module that I feel is well suited to one of my students.
In general, Office 365 Admin tools make me feel 7 feet tall. When I publish a Sway embed in WordPress, I get viewing notification emails from Azure Active Directory (AAD). I’m not surprised that the viewer is anonymous – requiring authentication would drive my “I’m outta here” bounce rate up.
If you want content viewed, don’t put up any more obstacles than are necessary.
Still, because the notification didn’t tell me which Sway was viewed, only the fact that there had been a Sway viewing — it wasn’t a perfectly satisfactory state of affairs. Until I happened to notice a link in the notification…

So it looks like I need to hit the documentation and start building up a more robust if still imperfect analytics understanding.
Use-case refinement to render search easier. Use send for “bursty” fleeting communications and Outlook/Exchange for more substantive/deliberate email so that when searching for the important stuff, results aren’t cluttered by the minor stuff.
Ultimately the author gives the nod to Salesforce Chatter’s long history & more robust feature set.
That said, the always intriguing (for it’s hard to disprove that disruption won’t occur) angle is embodied in this quote
With Facebook at Work, users could sign on to both the corporate and personal account, according to the Financial Times. Facebook at Work, in short, would launch offering companies a system that has the fastest learning curve ever in the history of enterprise software. Also, it is hard to imagine companies having to coax user adoption with Facebook at Work, as is often the case with other software packages, especially CRM.
And their conclusion mentions all the big names
For that reason, the arrival of Facebook at Work is not likely to be met with indifference by enterprise software companies. Even Google with its array of enterprise productivity tools could be threatened by Facebook at Work as well as Microsoft’s Yammer.
to say nothing of #WIREDchic Slack helping to prove the point that Social Enterprise is everywhere
Clicking on the third (bright red) link [“Access Requests & Invitations”] in the left column of this post’s featured image (above) takes you to this handy dashboard below. To change settings for a specific individual, use the three dots (general advice in SharePoint: when in doubt, hover on the three dots) to view th
So you can un-invite people impolite enough not to respond to the collaboration invitation you so thoughtfully extended — or remind them of something that can only be categorized as socially suicidal tendency negligence <smirk>.
I still try to calculate the soothing value of the user interface design of Office 365, which continues to grow sleeker — and grow on me. This is a totally different angle from how powerful you can feel with your configuration options.
But I digress. This was to be a minor musing. So ending now.
