Inspired by the mods of a few other communities, this is a continuation of a series of quarterly rewards for the best answer, and I'd ask the community for the best answers from the past quarter to get an additional reward:

Please link to an answer which was created from January 1st 2017 through March 31st 2017 and which you think deserves an additional reward. Only one entry per answer will be valid. For multiple favorites submit separate answers to this post.

Here is a data query to help with the decision making process:

If your answer isn't linked on the list above, no problem! You are free to choose your own favorite answer which didn't get the limelight. Any nominated answer can be from you or from someone else.

The highest voted answer of this meta post will be picked up for the reward of 200 points after 2 weeks.

Note: Answer must have 1+ upvote and submitted in the same quarter only. Answer should not be a wiki. Please only propose one post in any answer here so the votes can easily be tallied.

I would like to nominate Santanu Halder's answer to the question:-

Refresh lightning component Opportunity page on Stage progress bar


  • Unique question with very interesting use case (which I thought wouldn't be possible)
  • And a great(as in, again interesting) workaround for the same
  • Can you add just a brief explanation of why you think it is a good answer?

I'm nominating the fox too, for this one:

Can Queueable Apex Jobs Run in Parallel?

Not because it was my question, but because he got an answer to an oddball question in the time it took for me to fly from Melbourne to Sydney :)


I love this question and SFDCFox's answer to it. This is a behavior of Salesforce that is not innately intuitive and can lead to many hours of frustrated troubleshooting.

I am happy that this information is out there: Unable to rerender in visualforce Component

  • My pick as well for the exact same reasons.

I want to nominate Rahul Sharma's answer to this question:

Unknown Error Parsing Lead Query

It's an age old solution to a common problem. Can't compare field to field in a query? Use a formula!

    I think this is the answer which you're referring to. Current link points to your answer for me. :) (Please remove 166923#166923 in the end of the above link, so it points to the question itself)
