In groups of 2-5 people, please create a deployed "Free Force.Com" application that manages individual expense records for consultants. There should be two Profiles: "consultant" and "administrator", both of which are based upon the "Free Force user" profile. Each expense record should include an expense amount and a string for the type of expense. Each expense record should also have a field "paid" that is either "true" or "false".
Your users should have the following behaviors:
Force.com will email us a preliminary password for each user. It allows multiple user roles to have the same email address. Usernames must look like email addresses but need not be valid. Please make them unique by choosing some unique XXXX.
There is more than one way to specify business logic. The primary way that business logic is specified in SalesForce.com is to create access roles and define what data they can manipulate. In this case, the business logic is that records can be created by consultants, but they cannot mark the records "paid" (or "unpaid").
I've chatted with SalesForce.com to ask permission and the representative suggests that when you sign up for an account, you list your company as Tufts University but make it clear that you're a student, so the sales staff won't bother you. Each free account is allowed to deploy one service with up to 100 users. Follow the instructions on getting started, and then modify them to complete the assignment.
There are two kinds of free Force.com accounts: "free" and "developer". For this assignment you'll need a "free" account (acquired by signing up at http://force.com). This gives you the ability to deploy an application based upon built-in features, with up to 100 users including, e.g., me! By contrast, a "developer" account (acquired through signup at http://developerforce.com) allows one to develop applications for personal use, but not to deploy them for business use. This kind of account will not be useful for this assignment.
