There is a program that will work within Salesforce, it is called Connect Office Offline Briefcase 2.0. They are really a dumb company and I will tell you why.

I got to the point where i logged in and was able to sync the database, then it told me that that I had an activiex issue and force.salesforce.com needed to be rebooted. Tech support said it need to have I.E. 8 or 7, so after calling and having them work 4 hrs on my computer, they could not get it to work and said it was up to my administrator. Well, you know how crazy of an answer that is.

I told them, if you have your parameters than SOMEONE in your group has tested it and this is not the first time anyone has had I.E. 9-11 setup especially as there are security risks otherwise. Non the less he and his supervisor sounded like robots and told me that it should be somewhere on the net. Absolute lunacy for them to have a product that does not work on a current browser platform. I also tried uninstalling I.E. 11 and used f12 developer tools to allow for downgrade of versions on the fly, but nothing would work. We went further than the Salesforce tech. did and still did not get satisfaction.

My question was, does anyone use it? I am just in disbelief that I pushed to 3rd tier support and got nowhere.

This is a real Salesforce Black Eye.

Maybe you can get this working and find a solution.

HAVA CUP of Coffee?… Don’t most of us love that first cup in the morning. It is great, no it’s wonderful, and those that don’t just don’t get it.

I have been drinking 3-5 cups and more of coffee my whole adult life. Last year I was diagnosed with having Arterial Flutter, (affectionately known as AFib,  which annoying at best. You will be amazed on how many people have this and blow it off or do not get it diagnosed).

After several panic attacks and ER visits and stays for observation and thinking I was going to die, testing my reactions and trying some drugs to control it, not much was working well to keep it at bay. Under the care of Kaiser, I have been quite pleased with my Doctors and Nurse Practitioners, NPR Denise Middleton, Cardiologist Dr. Mark Timothy Deboer, Dr. David Cesario, M.D. Electro-cardiologist specialist in ablations.   
Daily, Doctors experiment on what they should do for you. You are their science experience and they have less than 15 minutes at a time to figure out what prescribe or do next. The old, “take two aspirins and call me in the morning” Why do you think the medical industry calls Doctors work a Practice? My opinion, Afib is one of the most illogical health issues on the planet. Hard to pin down a regiment that will work. You must be proactive and work with them, and use your own logic and give them solid information, so they can make better choices.

Early on, I was asked by my Doctor to stop drinking coffee, and I blew that off until about 40 days ago. I stopped drinking “cold turkey” and any symptoms, no headaches, a little tired, but thats it. Then I realized that I really did like that one cup in the morning, so I allowed myself one cup in the morning, none at night.

15 days into it, with LITTLE or NO  coffee, I have little or no symptoms of Afib, yes I am more tired, but that is ok. I have had better, less interrupted nights sleep than ever.
