Salesforce has given its customers a great deal of functionality with their Communities offerings. It brings external customers and partners into business process with some easy-to-use out of the box functionality. While out of box functionality is always nice to have, it’s also comforting to have the ability to build a fully custom, branded Community using Visualforce. I’d like to share four things I wish I knew before my first implementation of a Salesforce Customer Community. They deal with funky email patterns, how licensing can impact design, and some best practices for the technical team implementing the Community.
