Conga University

I recently had the good fortune of signing up for Conga University. Red Argyle is a Conga consulting partner, and since we get a lot of requests for Conga work, we thought this would be a good opportunity to expand our Conga knowledge. Conga currently offers four classes: Introduction to Conga Composer (self paced), Create a Custom Solution, Create a Complete Solution, and Administration & Troubleshooting. There are a few more advanced classes coming soon.

I use Conga Composer solutions in our Salesforce org, but before signing up for Conga University I had never set up solutions. At Red Argyle we use Conga for our proposals and combine it with EchoSign for even more awesomeness. That being said, these classes are set up so that anyone can take them. Other than the first class, all sessions are taught live by an experienced Conga instructor. The classes are very interactive and require your full attention (so don’t attempt to multitask!). There is so much good information that you won’t want to miss anything.

When you sign up for Conga University you get a Dev org to work in with a Conga license. The classes are all based on the newest version of Conga Composer 8. The classes consist of PowerPoint presentations, real world examples from your classmates, and step-by-step tutorials. In my opinion, the step-by-step examples that we walked through together as a class were the most helpful.

I would recommend these classes to anyone who is using currently using Conga in their Salesforce org or who has just installed Conga in their org. Be prepared: the classes are long. In fact, each class takes about a full work day. But the time you invest in these classes will save you time and frustration in the future. You might even learn things you didn’t know were possible with Conga. I’ve already put into place a number of the practices I learned through Conga training and am looking forward to signing up for the advanced classes when they are released.
