What Do Partners Need to Know About Trailblazer.me?

Jan 13, 2020

If you’ve visited Trailhead recently, you may have noticed a few changes: you have more login options, a revamped tool for merging duplicate accounts, and a new personalized profile link. All those changes are powered by Trailblazer.me, a new and simpler way to manage your Salesforce identity. With a Trailblazer.me account, you can access sites throughout the Salesforce ecosystem with a single login and manage your settings from one profile.

Today, Trailblazer.me extends to even more places in the ecosystem, including AppExchange and the Trailblazer Community. We’re especially excited to have AppExchange join the Trailblazer.me family, and we’re working hard to bring full support for Trailblazer.me to the Partner Community. In the near term, we’d like tell you a little about how Trailblazer.me changes your Partner Community experience. Here’s what you need to know.

Does Trailblazer.me change how I log in to the Partner Community?
No. To access the Partner Community, you’ll provide the same login credentials that you use today.

Does Trailblazer.me change how I manage details on my Partner Community profile, such as my name and job title?
Possibly. Depending on when you joined the Partner Community and which accounts were merged when you set up your Trailblazer.me profile, some profile details are now shared with your Trailblazer.me account. The easiest way to check is to look at your Partner Community profile. Here’s how:
  1. 1. In the Partner Community page header, click your profile icon, and then select My Profile.
  2. 2. Click Edit.
If your profile shares details with Trailblazer.me, we indicate that in the Edit Profile user interface (1). To edit those details, click Go to Trailblazer.me. You’ll be redirected to your Traiblazer.me account to make the changes. After you save, the changes are synced to the Partner Community.

If your profile doesn’t share details with a Trailblazer.me account, the Edit Profile user interface looks the same as before (2). You edit all your profile details in the Partner Community.

How else does Trailblazer.me affect my Partner Community profile?
Your activity on AppExchange and the Trailblazer Community, such as the ideas you posted on IdeaExchange, now appear on your Traiblazer.me profile. Previously, this activity was displayed on your Partner Community profile.

If any of your activity is missing from your Trailblazer.me profile, please contact Trailhead Support by submitting a case and selecting Trailhead/Certification Account.

Can I still link Trailhead badges and certifications to my Partner Community profile?
Yes. The process for linking Trailhead badges and certifications is the same as before. To learn how to link your badges or certifications, see this knowledge article.
