Custom Report Creation and Client
Requirements and Solutions
What the client needed
New Eyes for the Needy wanted custom reporting that would allow it to make granular
reports on its data in Salesforce. For instance, Jean Gajano, the Community Relations
Coordinator for New Eyes wanted to be able to quickly generate reports on the force of
volunteers on which New Eyes relies, increasing her job efficiency and helping her maintain
relationships with volunteers.
What our team delivered
To fulfill the client’s needs in a way that would allow them to work independently, we had
to take into consideration that they had no prior experience with Salesforce, which they did
not. We wanted to make no assumptions that anyone reading our documentation had any
technical significant expertise.
As experts on Salesforce, the VU New Eyes team provided guidance to the organization in
the form of personal training and tangible documentation in the form of a manual that any
user logging into Salesforce could easily follow.
Report Documentation
The VU implementation team drew up a user guide for New Eyes to use when Jean and Sue
want to create custom reports. We used simple screen shots with easy-to-follow steps
written out in text, accompanied by easy-to-see arrow callouts to help the end-user get a
visual perspective on each of the steps in Salesforce’s five-step process for creating custom
Report Documentation (Cont.)
Each step of the process was covered with one of these images, in order to
minimize any confusion for the user following the guide.
After going over the process with Jean and the team at New Eyes, they were very
pleased with the results. They found the instructions simple and feel comfortable
that they can run reports on their data, using any filter they wish to help them run
their organization.
