Our team was first introduced to Elements earlier this year. Over time we’ve found that the product has become invaluable for our clients – and we recommend it routinely. For a pittance of a price, Elements will bring clarity to the chaos that we see, as consultants, to so many existing Orgs. Firstly, the ability to clearly map out a business process is something that is not often done. Now, our customers may have mapped out the steps in Salesforce, for a training document, perhaps, but the connection from the ‘HOW’ the business works, to the ‘WHAT’ is done in Salesforce to accommodate the process is entirely absent. Further, six months, or a year down the line, no one has a clue ‘WHY’ something was done a certain way. Elements makes those connections, easily. We have a client that is now just learning importance of sandboxes and not doing everything in production. In the past, they have made changes to a something like a field label and API name that is a member of 3 workflows, 4 Process Builders, 20 validation rules, 7 formulas and so on. We’d get a panic “OMG Everything is broken!” call and have to decipher what happened. Now, our client can see what the contingencies are +before+ they make the change, saving everyone a lot of headaches. Run into an issue, or have a question? The Elements team is on it in a flash. For half the cost of a Starbucks coffee each day, you can have peace of mind and order in your Org. Awesome! And… no, they didn’t pay or bribe me to write this review.
