Salesforce, the leading CRM platform, is known for its adaptability. However, there are moments when certain functionalities might feel a tad restrictive. One such area is the Roll-Up Summary Fields. Let’s explore the current limitations and some handy workarounds to make your Salesforce journey smoother.

Currently, Salesforce’s Roll-Up Summary Field functionality is bound by static criteria and simple logic, limiting its ability to evaluate records for COUNT, SUM, and other operations. This has led to a call within the community for a more dynamic approach: introducing formulas.
