- Your username must be unique across all Salesforce orgs. The username must be in the format of an email address, for example, firstname.lastname@example.org. This email username doesn’t have to work. You can have the same functioning email address associated with your account across orgs—only the username in the form of an email address must remain unique.
- If your name includes non-English characters, add the specified language to the mail format settings within Outlook if viewing email in Outlook.
- The account verification link emailed to new users expires in six months, and users have to change their password the first time they log in. Users who click the account verification link but don’t set a password need an admin to reset their password before they can log in.
- You can change a Salesforce license to a Force.com license, but you can’t change a Force.com license to a Salesforce license.
- Not all options are available for all license types. For example, the Marketing User and Allow Forecasting options are not available for Force.com user licenses because the Forecasts and Campaigns tabs are not available to users with a Force.com license.
Force.com user licenses are not available for Professional, Group, or Contact Manager Editions.
- In Performance, Unlimited, Enterprise, and Developer Edition orgs, you can select Send Apex Warning Emails to send email to the user when an application that invokes Apex uses more than half of the resources specified by the governor limits. You can use this feature during Apex code development to test the amount of resources used at runtime.
