As a Salesforce Administrator, if you’re anything like me, it can be hard enough maintaining proper security parameters, keeping the entirety of your org’s data clean, and responding to troubleshooting requests. You must do all this while keeping up with requests, like creating that new dashboard for the BizDev team. All of this must happen in between stakeholder meetings making sure your org is running as effectively as possible. Oh, and don’t forget the most common request of resetting user passwords. I’m sweating just typing all of that out!

This doesn’t even scratch the surface of what a typical day in the life of a Salesforce Administrator can look like. I didn’t even hit on the administrative side of actually logging all of these tasks. You know the bottlenecks and pain this immense workload creates. There’s got to be a better way, right?

Wouldn’t it be great if those general admin tasks were automated? What if your users were ecstatic about the ease of use of Salesforce? Isn’t this the dream of every Salesforce Admin?

Think about all that you could accomplish if you could get to this dream state. Luckily for you, we have a Salesforce admin tool that can help you get there. With Formstack for Salesforce, you could save an average of 20 hours each week, giving you more time to focus on impactful work. Here’s how our Salesforce no-code platform delivers on this time-saving promise.

Forms for Salesforce Use Cases in Action

Streamline Salesforce Admin Requests 

Ever wish you could actually enact that fantasy of telling your coworkers to take a number? Use Formstack Forms to create your own Salesforce Admin ticketing system for handling random user requests. This way, not only do you get the gratifying feeling of checking items off a checklist, you also get the built- in benefit of keeping a record of change requests. This works great for troubleshooting requests as well. 

You can even create follow- up tasks through Flows and Process Builder so you’ll never forget to send that thank you email or log those meeting notes. With Formstack for Salesforce, these can all be instantaneously and automatically updated in Salesforce within moments with the proper toolsets. 

Eliminate Duplicates with Field Prefill 

You can also access the Field Prefill feature to utilize data that already exists in Salesforce to eliminate redundancy. Field Prefill makes the user experience that much more amazing by eliminating the need to fill out the same information time after time. This provides your customers a better experience and helps minimize data duplicates and errors.

Save time for end users by enabling prefilled forms that reduce repetitive tasks, significantly accelerate processes, and progressively build on your Salesforce data model.
