Have you ever been in a situation where you need to store gigantic amount of data in your Salesforce org? Are you tired of using third-party storage systems and writing web service calls to get the massive amount of data? Having to crunch those large numbers, though a reflection of your own success, can be troublesome and performance degrading. Salesforce has come to the rescue again by introducing big objects-which are objects with massive storage capabilities on the Salesforce platform itself. They provide consistent performance over a data set of the order of billions and are accessible through a standard set of APIs to your org or to an external system.

Visual Flows in Salesforce
Hearing the word flow in salesforce we start thinking about the workflow i.e. defining criteria and firing action. So the question arise that weather flow is the amplified version of workflow or not? So the answer is a big “no”, flow is completely different form the workflow. Workflow let you automate your process letting you select the objects, defining the criteria and based on that criteria firing the immediate or a time dependent actions but this is not the case with the visual flows, visual flows structure a collaboration between you and Salesforce. They were created to be interactive and perform best in situations where system and user have something to contribute.
Contact Roles in Salesforce.
I observed in many salesforce communities that lot of salesforce people facing challenges in associating one contact with multiple accounts, cases, Contracts or Opportunities.
In salesforce architecture Contact has a Standard Account field, which means a Contact can be associate with on account.
However we can create few more Custom lookup fields on Contact to associate few more accounts, but that will not be a good approach to achieve this requirement if you want to associate one contact to n number of accounts, cases or Opportunities.
Macros are very powerful and interesting component of salesforce. Macros are like set of computer instructions that executes to automate some task that task can be to assign value in a field, to automatically send an email, to update any field, selecting an email template and more. All instructions that we create using macros get execute on a single click. Macros are mostly use with case feed layout basically to update case and to send quick response to user about any update of case raised by that user.
