I usually start these posts with a quip about the weather. Instead here’s a quote I read in this week’s New Yorker, “Horticulturists have a mantra: right plant, right place.” Now that we have the pleasantries out of the way, let’s jump into the fun stuff.

This is my first real technical Salesforce blog! A customer had many ship-tos and wanted a way to collaborate from one account to another.
