SALESFORCE GEOLOCATION DATA

Dealing with data in a location friendly manner is not a new problem. Way past, when Apex was, however, a brand new language and lacked some higher mathematical functions like sine and cosine Trying to determine location without things like sine and cosine was technically not possible. So that was three things that salesforce lacked. One solution can be to tag data based on a database that could translate ZIP codes into latitude and longitude and then do queries based on squares. Because when you don’t have trig on your side, squares are much easier to deal with.

Although it was too hectic as a task, it was also kind of fun.

What is Outbound Message in Salesforce

Outbound Message in Salesforce

Outbound message in salesforce is a kind of action that sends the information to an end-point (External Service) in the form of XML (Extensible Markup Language). It used to send object field data to your third-party application to perform the specific task as per requirement. It also played a very big role in the Integration of salesforce with any other application. You can send the outbound message using workflow, entitlement processes or approval processes.

The best thing about the outbound message is, you do not need to write any apex code you can create it by simple point & Click. When you send any message to an end-point than it will get the information of the data in the fields which we are sending in the outbound message in the form of XML. You can use RequestBin.com which will provide you the end-point to use and you can get the XML there.
