1. Making broad changes to data, like moving ownership of records from one user to another for a new Sales Rep or a moved Sales Rep. 2. Making broad changes to data for product changes, product introductions and such (product naming changes, product description changes, etc.). I recently had to make a change to the name of a Product Option. Product Options are a sub-object related to Product. This name change was in 22 places. Okay, 18 [is] not a lot, but to make this change individually 22 times is still very tedious and takes too much of my time. Instead, I set up my Grid with the Object and sub-Object and made all 22 changes at once with a mass change. Piece of cake. And I don't have to go back to several of the records to see if the change was made successfully (something you have to do with Dataloader). I could see the effective change all at once on my Grid screen.

I would recommend the app to another colleague if they were only going to manage 1-2 brands or channels. I believe in typical Eastman fashion, we had one idea of how we were going to use StorySlab and now a few years later our vision has changed. Items are starting to get cluttered.

Pros
Validity
  • Reshapes the user Interface into an intuitive, clean, easy and thoughtful way, meaning Salesforce can be practically used for applications that (in my Opinion) salesforce was never designed for.
  • Mass updates are a God send, Leaving quick and meaningful notes, setting up meetings with clients or upcoming calls to maintain contact, all from the same screen without information overload... a real achievement.

Cons
Validity
  • Does not allow users to create new Campaign Member records; we would like to be able to add multiple Campaign Member records to a Campaign in a Grid.
  • Does not allow users to create new Task records; we would like to be able to add multiple Tasks records related to the same user but multiple Opportunities and Contacts.

This is the 1st inline editing product we have tested. The only reason we would ever go with another product is the price.

We use Marcom Central for one brand. They do not have a mobile app or mobile capabilities, which is unfortunate. We also use it as an e-commerce site for our customers to log on to as well.
