Make the most out of Admin specific content
Did you know that the 120 sessions (70 breakout and 50 Theater sessions) that will be presented at the conference have been handpicked among the staggering 752?
To see all content for Admins, filter them by role – Salesforce Admin, and a specific topic, or use this cheatsheet.
How to pick the sessions?
Lost in the number of choices and are tempted to decide at the conference, on the spot? Not the best approach. To select the sessions that will be most useful to you, start by picking goals for Dreamforce. What are the areas of knowledge/skills you’d like to improve? What is the stakeholder’s position as to what you need to know better? With your goals in mind, choosing which sessions to attend will be much easier and more effective.
How can you“bend time and space”?
It’s not a rare occasion that Dreamforce participants book more sessions than they can attend in person. Great news then – you don’t need to be there to get the information. Actually, experienced trailblazers recommend attending Roadmap sessions, which aren’t recorded. You can follow some of the other sessions to get all the updates and be on top of things even if you can’t be in present at two sessions simultaneously.
