Install the Package
In this project, you’ll:
- Install a package in your Trailhead Playground.
- Build a data model for a Dreamforce registration app.
- Use the Data Import Wizard to import attendee records into the app.
- Create a process for automated registration.
When you’re running an event, there are many things you need to track. You need to track logistics, like where your event will be held and when your event occurs. You need to track your event name and the sessions you have scheduled. And you need to track who has registered for your event and what sessions they plan to attend.
In this project, you build an event registration app. To save time, we provide you with the foundation for the app in a managed package, and then you add additional customizations to the app, including custom fields, custom objects, and automation.
