Suggestions Initial Configuration

  • iPad
  • Browser (Classic)
  • Windows Tablet

There are two high-level ways of implementing Suggestions:

  • Public model - Suggestions are associated at the Account level, regardless of the user
  • The Suggestion has an external Id for Account
  • Any action taken against that Suggestion applies across all users who have access to the Account

For example, if a user dismisses a Suggestion for an Account, the Suggestion is dismissed for all users who have access to the same account.

  • Private model - Suggestions are assigned to an individual User and Account
  • A Suggestion has an external Id for the Account and an ownerId for the user
  • Set the Suggestion_vod object to Private in Sharing Settings

  • If the user dismisses a Suggestion, because it is privately owned, that user is the only one who is impacted

Suggestion Record Type Permissions

Record types are used on the following objects:

  • Stakeholder_Preference_vod
  • Suggestion_vod
  • Suggestion_Feedback_vod
  • Suggestion_Tag_vod
  • Call_Objective_vod
  • Sent_Email_vod

A trigger on the Suggestion_vod, Suggestion_Tag_vod and Stakeholder_Preference_vod objects that use the Record_Type_Name_vod field on the object to populate the appropriate Record Type.

For example, if the Suggestion object has a Record_Type_Name_vod of Call_vod, the recordType Id is automatically assigned to the Suggestion record. In this example, the Suggestion record is assigned a Call_vod action.

If the Record_Type_Name_vod field is not used in data loading, users must have access to the appropriate Record Types for each object. The default record type is assigned if the Record_Type_Name_vod field is left blank.
