Attention, Trailblazer!

Salesforce has two different desktop user interfaces: Lightning Experience and Salesforce Classic. This project is designed for Lightning Experience.

You can learn about switching between interfaces, enabling Lightning Experience, and more in the Lightning Experience Basics module here on Trailhead.

  • Sign up for a special Trailhead Playground with Einstein Prediction Builder.
  • Create custom fields for building and enriching a prediction.
  • Build a prediction to determine the likelihood that restaurant customers won’t show up for their reservations.
  • Create a list view showing your riskiest reservations.

Introduction

“Welcome to Pizzaiolo Marco! Do you have a reservation?”

As the operations manager of the bustling restaurant chain Pizzaiolo Marco, this phrase is music to your ears. Business has really been picking up lately. Reservations are coming in fast, so it’s a good thing you set up that slick online reservation system. Keeping tables full of happy guests is your personal quest.

The problem is that people with reservations don’t always turn up. In fact, the general manager has noted an increase in the number of no-shows. Life happens, and customers aren’t always diligent about canceling reservations they can’t make. But you need to plan for proper staffing, and your host staff need to know how many walk-ins they can take. If only there were a way to find out which reservations will be no-shows.

You’d like to have the staff call customers to confirm reservations, but there are too many reservations and too few employees. Then you realize it’s lunchtime, so you grab a slice of pizza and start brainstorming.

Work Smarter with Einstein

You’ve always managed to keep Pizzaiolo Marco ahead of the curve. When business started taking off and expanding, you began using Salesforce to manage online reservations. You recently learned that the Salesforce AI platform, Einstein, has a key new feature for solving your reservation no-show problem.

Einstein Prediction Builder lets you make predictions about almost any field in Salesforce with just a few clicks. Then you can use the predictions to power a workflow, focus your efforts, and work smarter. No models. No algorithms. And, best of all, no code. Point. Click. Predict.

Einstein Prediction Builder helps to predict the likelihood that customers show up for a reservation, so you can prioritize which customers to call for confirmation. Then you can schedule restaurant staff appropriately, fill more seats, and make more diners happy.

But can you really do that with Einstein Prediction Builder?

Let’s find out.
