Sign Up for a CRM Analytics-Enabled Developer Edition Org

Get the CRM Analytics Edge

In this Trailhead project, you get hands-on experience with CRM Analytics. We give you a comprehensive introduction to the product so that you can bring the CRM Analytics edge to your Salesforce org.

You’re going to sign up for your own CRM Analytics-enabled Developer Edition org, and then build an app with a dashboard and a lens. We show you how to create data visualizations in the explorer and dashboard designer and share your insights with your team.

Let’s Do This

First, sign up for a special, CRM Analytics-enabled, Developer Edition org so you can start working with CRM Analytics. 

 For this project, you can’t use an existing Developer Edition org or a Trailhead Playground org. Follow the steps below to get a CRM Analytics-enabled Developer Edition that comes with a limited CRM Analytics Platform license and contains the sample data required for this project. If you already have a CRM Analytics-enabled Developer Edition org, you should still sign up for a new one now to ensure you get the latest and greatest features.

  1. Go to
  2. Fill out the form. For Email, enter an active email address.
  3. After you fill out the form, click Sign me up. A confirmation message appears. Confirmation message appears, asking you to check your email
  4. When you receive the activation email (this might take a few minutes), open it and click Verify Account.
  5. Complete your registration by setting your password and challenge question.
 Note your username, password, and login URL for easy access later.

Way to go! You’re logged in to your Developer Edition, a Salesforce org with CRM Analytics enabled and all the necessary permissions defined. Your org also has preloaded data integrated into a CRM Analytics dataset that’s ready to explore. (If you want to learn about the admin work for enabling and setting up CRM Analytics, check out the trail called Build and Administer CRM Analytics.)

Now connect your new Developer Edition org to Trailhead.

  1. Make sure you're logged in to your Trailhead account.
  2. In the Challenge section at the bottom of this page, click the playground name and then click Connect Org.
  3. On the login screen, enter the username and password for the Developer Edition you just set up.
  4. On the Allow Access? screen, click Allow.
  5. On the Want to connect this org for hands-on challenges? screen, click Yes! Save it. You are redirected back to the challenge page and ready to use your new Developer Edition to earn this badge.

Now click Verify step, and then move to the next step, where you create an app and a lens.
