What is a Salesforce user group?
Before we tell you the benefits, it’s best to start with what the groups are, and why you should get involved. As a Salesforce customer, you are automatically part of the Salesforce community, which means you get access to over 900 user groups around the world. These groups are designed to bring together the Salesforce user community to learn, grow, and succeed together. Connecting with a user group can be incredibly helpful in maximising the benefits of your Salesforce system as well as sorting any problems quickly. You can choose groups in your area, or find groups that are tailored to your specific circumstances or business area. The user groups keep you up to date with all the latest information and hopefully, you can make a few helpful connections along the way.
Who are they for?
Salesforce user groups are for everyone. From new users looking to find tips and tricks to specialists looking to pass on their knowledge and experience, the Salesforce community welcomes users from all levels and business areas. Whether you’re an IT manager, business analyst or Salesforce extraordinaire, the benefits of the user groups are universal. From New York to Newcastle, there’s a Salesforce user group to support you, wherever you are in the world.
What to expect
Due to a certain worldwide pandemic, the user groups have moved online. Like the rest of the world, Salesforce had to innovate. While it’s great to see everyone in person, the virtual user groups are the next best thing. During these difficult times, the groups are even more valuable and keep the support going online until normality returns. They are a great chance for a get-together both professionally and socially. Here’s an idea of what you can expect:
- Insights from experts
- Problem solving and helpful discussions
- Food and drinks
- Quizzes, auctions, prizes, and other fun activities mixed in
The groups bring people from the Salesforce system together to connect, discuss and learn from each other. They were developed to help everyone to thrive and grow together and be a central hub where you can get tips, share knowledge, and connect with the rest of the community.
Most importantly – there are no silly questions! Many users know Salesforce inside and out, so if you’ve just started using Salesforce, the user groups are invaluable. Joining a Salesforce user group allows you to learn from your peers, build your network and of course – have fun.
We look forward to seeing you there!
