The engineers at Ursa Major Solar (UMS) developed an incredible advancement: making space solar power a reality. When Sita Nagappan-Alavarez and her husband Roberto founded UMS in 1996, solar space power was only a topic of science fiction stories. With a corporate vision committed to renewable energy in new forms, UMS's advancement in this area has created incredible demand for its first-generation products. The sales leadership team is reviewing the amount and quality of data in their Sales Cloud instance. They note that some of the sales team kept customer information in different places over time: in various spreadsheets, paper lists, and even sticky notes. As a new member of the sales team, you’re committed to centralizing all customer data in Salesforce.
Your onboarding buddy Marie-Grace has been a great resource in getting to know the system and learning how correct data supports AI-powered, personalized sales journeys. You’re feeling confident working with accounts, contacts, and leads as you enter your first sales meeting without Marie-Grace.
Work with Accounts
The first item on the meeting agenda: account reallocation. The first record up for review is Edge Communications. Updated information about Edge needs to be reflected on the account record. First, make sure the new CEO
Ahmed Kazem is related to the account with the title of CEO. Next, create a relationship for Ahmed to the Edge account as Executive Sponsor as well as Decision Maker.
Here's additional information for Ahmed Kazem, but we are not checking for it.

Next up: updating the company’s different subsidiaries. Ironically, Edge Communications recently acquired a technology manufacturing company called Edgeless Technologies. Create a new record for
Edgeless Technologies as a privately owned manufacturing company. Make sure the new record reflects the relationship between the two companies. Relate Ahmed to the Edgeless Technologies account as an Influencer.

The next account up for review is Grand Hotels & Resorts Ltd. A new sales team will be managing all of the hospitality accounts. Reassign ownership of the Grand Hotels account to Caroline Abrams, transferring all of your open cases for Grand Hotels as well.
After reviewing several other accounts, the sales meeting shifts to end-of-quarter planning—and your upcoming time out of office. As the owner of accounts, you want to make sure your team is able to collaborate on accounts while you’re away. Associate Caroline Abrams to the Burlington Textiles Corp of America account record as a Sales Manager, and then grant her Read/Write on Opportunity and Account, and Read Only on Case so that she can continue supporting opportunities while you’re out.
Finally, update your Profile page so that your profile reflects your upcoming time out of office, (You can use any dates in the future you’d like; we won’t check for specific dates.) Send a Chatter post to the existing Sales Group to inform them about your upcoming holidays and at-mention your manager, Justin Lane.
Work with Contacts
Word is out about space solar! GenePoint’s leadership team is impressed with the idea of replacing standby generators with abundant solar power. On today’s call with GenePoint, someone unexpected from its advisory board joined the call. This new account influencer is

Next, you’re following up on a former customer who has changed organizations. Avi Green, formerly with United Oil & Gas Corp., has a new role as CFO of
Turnpoint Energy. Avi was a key player in many deals with United, so his association with that account should remain. Make sure you follow UMS best practices by marking the existing record as Inactive, then quickly create a new record for Avi from the existing record to maintain information about him from his time with United. Make sure that he will receive your marketing team’s email outreach. You can make additional adjustments to the new contact record, but we won't check for those.

Find the opportunity Cloud Kicks - Solar Generators 3M, and update its related contact Candace Evans's title to
Director. As you review the Duplicate Contacts report, you notice that there are two contacts with the same phone number for Candace. Select the contact record that doesn't include Candace's title to review the information. Merge Candace's two contact records, making sure that key information including her title, lead source, email opt-in, and level are all retained in the merged contact.
Work with Person Accounts
After an energy symposium, you have several new connections to add to the system. Enter the new connections into Salesforce using the proper account type.
Note: For the purpose of this challenge, all you need to enter are names, but you can add additional details for the records you create if you'd like. If you create the account with the wrong record type, delete the incorrect record and start over.

Work with Leads
UMS has previously worked with Jackson Controls. You notice that Jeff Glimpse is not directly associated to Jackson Controls. Run the automation that allows you to directly relate Jeff to the Jackson Controls account. Although there’s not an opportunity at this time, you’re confident there will be soon.
Next up: Reviewing potential future opportunities. The sales team recently implemented a new lead scoring process that uses stars to indicate a lead’s probability of becoming an opportunity. The star rating is influenced by the record's lead source, address, and industry. Each field should have a value for the top rating to apply. Further, lead records with high need and the shortest timeframe will also have a top rating.
Review leads and lead ratings so they reflect the updated information you know about each one. Adjust each of the following records to reflect the proper lead rating.
- Kristen Akin: Four stars based on her high need and immediate timing
- Kimio Okano: Two stars based on her Agriculture industry
- Victor Rocha: Four stars based on a change to his need decreasing to low
