Salesforce Labs Components – Phil’s Salesforce Tip of the Week #415

Salesforce Labs have outdone themselves this time, with 15 Lightning Web Components to play around with. Salesforce Labs produces free Apps that are created by Salesforce employees (as an experiment, not usually as part of their day job), and added to the Appexchange for us all to use. I could take up 15 Fridays of ‘Tip of the Week’ blogs on this, but instead here is a great list that you can take a look at. There are too many to choose a favourite from, but I am going to start with a look at the Lightning File Explorer.

Who is going to pick up your device?

I had a few days break, walking and running in the Peak District which was amazing, and on the way found an iPhone in the middle of a field! How do you reconnect a device to it’s owner? Or how can a first responder find out about an unconscious person from a locked phone? If you haven’t done it, like me, and like the owners of the iPhone, set up an ICE or Medical contacts, it is free and fast and available on Apple or Android devices! Thankfully with some detective work, I got the phone back to the owner…and thanks to our Marketing Manager Ben Duong, who managed to track them down with just 1 tweet to his network!! Never mind 6 degrees of separation, with Ben it is just 1.

Now what for Dreamforce?

Here is a great post from Keir Bowden aka Bob Buzzard, about what can and can’t be recreated without an actual in-person Dreamforce. I think we all agree, Virtual events are definitely no real substitute! But it looks like it will be quite a while before any of us board the plane for a long exotic trip to a Dreamin’ event or Dreamforce 🙁
