    Hi John

    Along with some other users, I found the instructions lacked clarity as an Account Number field is already created. I think some more direction would be nice e.g. “Create a new custom field to identify the Account number”

    Other than that, great job! Just keep creating more quiz Qs!!!

      That is intentional, but thanks for the feedback. When a biz user comes to you, they don’t know about the standard field either… that said I will think about the wording on a few of these when revisiting the materials

    I was able to do this, but am having some trouble with the account page layouts. Where do you navigate to see the page layout for creating a new account? I am able to find the page layout that displays all of the information once the account is created/saved. Thanks

      Go to the page layout assignment to see which layout is assigned to each profile. You won’t see formula fields when you create a record- the formula is only calculated after the record is saved.

    This is confusing it’s not clear you’re asking for a customer number it seems you’re asking for an account number which is a standard field and can’t be edited.

      Account number can be edited if you enable the field level security, but it would never support the ability to auto-number. Another alternative would be to use an autonumber field and an workflow rule to copy the value to the account number. I find these type of ambiguities prevalent in day to day life as a consultant/admin, which is why there are some of them in this guide.
