Course Overview Hello. My name is Sara Morgan Nettles, and welcome to this course on how to Share Salesforce Data Across Users, Groups, and Roles. I'm a Salesforce Certified Platform II Developer that has been working on the Salesforce platform for the last 10 years. This is the second course in the skill path series that is designed to help you pass the Salesforce Certified Sharing and Visibility Designer exam. In this course, you will learn just how complex the Salesforce sharing model can be with all of its interdependent layers. But don't worry, because I will be stepping you through all of this in a very easy to understand way. Some of the major topics that I will cover include layers of the Salesforce record sharing model, the role hierarchy, which opens up record access vertically, how to share a record manually or by using sharing rules, why implicit sharing can override sharing access, and how to troubleshoot user record access. By the end of this course, you'll know how to declaratively configure record‑level access on the Salesforce platform. But before beginning the course, you should be familiar with basic platform configuration as a Salesforce administrator. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn more about the Salesforce sharing model with the Share Salesforce Data Across Users, Groups, and Roles course, at Pluralsight.
