Surveys in Salesforce

Initially, Salesforce Surveys were originated in Spring’18 release. This basic feature allows us to create easy-to-use forms for collecting the feedback as well as data by using the simple editor. All the salesforce survey data you collect is stored within your org. If we’re looking for easily mapped responses directly into the Salesforce(standard as well as custom objects) automatically, then surveys are the best option. Through surveys, we can send follow-ups and we can add questions to our surveys and also customize or brand our surveys as well.

This blog will take you through what survey tools stand out as a great addition to the Salesforce platform. We can also use Salesforce to view survey data, create reports as well as dashboards and sharing these with our company.

How to avoid Data Skew in Salesforce

Data skew in salesforce is getting generated at an explosive pace nowadays and we are running out of storage solutions in order to manage that data. Researches by multiple magazines and portals suggest that 90 percent of the total data in the world was created in the last two years only.
