The brand new Trailhead Go app
Salesforce has recently released its new app — Trailhead Go. This is an app for both Android and IOS that puts all your beloved Trailhead trails in your hand to use on the fly!
To use the app, you need to either create or already have a Trailhead account. At the bottom of the app is a navigation pane, which contains the following tabs:
On the Today tab is a summary of Badges, Trails and Trailmixes in progress, this is a great place to look if you have a spare 20 minutes to finish off a trail and learn something new.
On the Learn Tab is where you’ll find your recommendations. These consist of Modules, Projects, Trails and Trailmixes. I’d advise going here if you want to start a new badge and learn something new.
On the Search tab, there’s a recommendation on what to search for, as well as a search bar where you can search for Trails, Modules and more! If you have something in mind you want to learn, search it in there. It’ll search for keywords for you.
For example, I’m looking to learn about Process Builder. So I’ll search “Process Builder”, and it’ll show me everything with ‘Process builder’ keywords.
This is where you can see your Trailblazer profile, including how many badges and points you have with your rank, a doughnut chart of your skills based on completed badges, recently-passed badges, and your info.
The more tab is a bit like the settings tab. You can find help, send feedback, go to the Application Settings (which I believe isn’t working at the moment), and then there’s Campfire Mode.
Campfire mode allows you to change the interface of Trailhead Go, as standard its white with all the backgrounds being light. By using this toggle, you’re able to make it black (a dark setting).
One thing that I’ve found that they’ll hopefully fix by the next update, is the fact you’re not able to change the language. So far, the only way I’ve found how to change the language is to uninstall the app and then go to the desired country’s app store. For example, I want the app in English, so I’ll go to the UK app store.
So far, this app has been enthusiastically welcomed by the Trailblazer community. Which isn’t a surprise seeing as it’s been requested for several years!
