Clone User in Salesforce

I need to create sample of users to test one of the application.It is TEDIOUS to do data entry one by one.If two still okay for me, if five ...ten...better I start  Googling.

Heh...although I know the Clone feature is exist in Salesforce but I just found out that for User there is no Clone feature directly.There work around to Clone it.Someone posted an idea for Clone User, please vote it if you feel it is useful for you.I voted it already =)

Vote  idea for Clone Users :

Once you vote it, don't forget to read the comments.You'll be surprise a lot of suggestion of workarounds there.The entry that I wrote today was my experiment based on the workaround suggested.

In order to make Clone User feature , just follow the step below:

1 - Go to Setup --> App Setup --> Customize --> Users. Add Custom Links as below.
Label : Clone User
Behavior : Display in existing window with sidebar
Button or Link URL :/{!User.Id}/e?clone=1&retURL=%2F{!User.Id}&isdtp=mn

Don't forget to Save.

2-Add this new Custom Link at User Layout.Again don't forget to Save.

3-Now you can go and check the Custom Link at the User page.
It's there!!!
4- You click that link, fill in necessary fields and Save.The UI is similar like below.
Cooolll like ABC!!
However  I still hope that Salesforce will provide Standard button to clone the user.

For this time being, this workaround  is SAVING my day. =)

Tips and Tricks : Test class for Invocable method

Issue : I got 100% coverage in my sandbox but when run validation for deployment it returns 0% coverage It turn out that in my sandbox, I am depending on Process Builder to Invocable Apex class, as long I manipulate test data that fire Process Builder it will call Invocable class. This is not useful when deploying it to Production although it gets deployed together with Process Builder. The correct way is to direct call Invocable method inside test class itself. Example of class : 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 global class MyCustomObject_StatusUpdate_Util { @InvocableMethod ( label = ' Update Quote Status ' ) public static void updateQuote ( Request [] requests ) { Set < Id > setOppId = new Set < Id >(); List < SBQQ__Quote__c > listQuoteToUpdate = new List < SBQQ__Quote__c >(); for ( Request request : requests ) {
