On Working Through the Grunt Work

Having been in a position where we used Salesforce (and where I spent part of my time putting data into Salesforce), putting someone on Salesforce in their first week is rough. You don't know the naming conventions—are you supposed to type out United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, or input UNHCR?—and you don't yet know that Christine Peterson is the same person as C.J.
