Welcome to Getting Started with Mission Control for Team Members. This course is aimed at people who will be working on projects using Aprika’s Mission Control cloud-based project management system.

This course assumes that Mission Control has been purchased and installed in your Salesforce org “out-of-the-box” i.e. no further customizations have been made. All screenshots are taken in Lightning Experience. Check with your Salesforce and Mission Control Administrators if the screenshots look different to your login.

Let us introduce ourselves

In this learning course, you will watch the professional services team from Aprika Creative use Mission Control to build a website for their customer Grommets, Inc.

Aprika Creative Agency is a professional services consultancy based in Torquay on the Victorian Surf Coast in south-eastern Australia. Aprika Creative provides the best possible branding, websites, communications and thought leadership.

Their customer Grommets, Inc., is an up and coming surf brand. They focus on young surfers, running a surf academy and selling junior surf gear at their locations in Torquay, Margaret River, and Waikiki. Aprika Creative helped Grommets, Inc. create their brand when they started up five years ago, and now they need a website overhaul as they look to expand into three new locations over the next year.

Layne Becker – Project Manager Kelly Dunn – Web Designer Tyler Lee – Brand Marketing Consultant

Kelly and Tyler use Mission Control to log their time and expenses and record annual leave requests. For this course, we follow Kelly and Tyler as they submit leave requests, timesheets, expenses and complete work assigned to them by Layne, the Project Manager.

In Getting Started with Mission Control for Project Managers, we follow Layne through the process from start to finish; from creating a project to assigning actions to team members to sending invoices and finally recording receipt of invoice payments. If this sounds like a better match for your job responsibilities, why not head over to Getting Started with Mission Control for Project Managers?
