Can anyone please explain to me as to what is the difference between Salesforce lightning and Salesforce1 App, or how are they related?
Salesforce.com Introduces Salesforce1. Salesforce1 is the new social, mobile and cloud customer platform built to transform sales, service and marketing apps.Salesforce1 is the first CRM platform for developers, ISVs, end users, admins and customers moving to the new social, mobile and connected cloud. Salesforce1 is a brand new app which replaced Salesforce Chatter and is what most of the current Salesforce buzz surrounds. In theory it'll allow you to make use of ALL Salesforce functionalities from your mobile, including all custom objects, apps and even Visualforce pages. It's also feed-first, so Chatter is central to it.
Lightning Experience, the new, fast, beautiful user experience from Salesforce. With a sales-centric mindset, we focused on reinventing the desktop environment to better support your sales process. The result is an intuitive, intelligent interface that helps sales reps work more naturally and close more deals faster.
It’s really just the beginning! Lightning Experience will transform Salesforce CRM and extend to service, apps, platform, and more. No matter what department you're in, we understand that the way people work is changing.
All this change is greatly influenced by the rise of mobile. Sales reps at your company are already using mobile to research prospective customers, get directions to client meetings, connect socially with customers, and more. We get that. That’s why Lightning Experience takes the cool stuff from the mobile experience and brings it to the desktop.
Salesforce1 is using same framework for user interface like lightning but both are dieffrent.
I'm trying to embed a Wave dashboard onto the Account layout so I can provide my Sales Reps some sales insights when working on existing customers.
We have noticed that even though we have tried to add the dashboard as a Lightning Component and as a embedded Visualforce page onto the standard layout, when logging in using an iPad ot a phone, the Wave dashboard doesn't appear at all.
Is there any possible workaround without having to navigate away from the record?
I followed the information in the link below.
My vf page is as follows:
<apex:page sidebar="true" standardController="Account">
And here's it showing up on an iPad:
I've deliberately kept the vf simple just to get it working, I've taken out the filter section but I don't see why this shouldn't work if I have a valid dataset, I'll have a play with this next.
The issue I'm having now is that the faceting doesn't work in mobile, well it does but when you click on a part of the donut for example it opens the dashboard in another page, it doesn't update dynamically on the fly as it does on the desktop.
I have downloaded the lightning for gmail extension and it works great on my desktop.
But I want my users to be able to access this gmail integration with Salesforce on their phone. Does anyone know of or recommend an ios app or solution where my users can log an email, create a new lead etc. to Salesforce through gmail on ios?
I am trying to create a custom field on Activity object of the datatype test area long or text area rich.But am unable to find those two datatypes.
Those two datatypes are available on other std objects but its not present on Activity object.
I saw this question in a salesforce exam (admin)
how can a get remove acess to salesforce? 2 correct options
a) salesforce app - ok
b) on the browser of your cellphone, (i tried this, and its possible, but this don't make sense for me.
other options i can't remeber...
The app has specific functionality, but there may be some features of the full site you want to access. By switching to your mobile browser you are able to switch to Classic mode and gain access to elements that might not be accessible via the salesforce mobile interface.
Once use case for this would be for an admin to login as another user to see what their mobile expierence is like. The Admin could login via their mobile browser, switch to Classic, get to setup>users, login as a specific user, and if they are a Lightning User, they will get see that users Salesforce mobile view.
Do you know if in SalesForce there is an app similar to Oracle Voice for Sales Cloud?
That is, in the mobile application sales representatives can generate appointments and tasks by voice.
I have problems with completing a trailhead exercise which is called: Create a global quick action for adding a new opportunity
I could create the quick action, but when trying to verify it says:
The 'Opportunity Name', 'Close Date', 'Stage' and 'Amount' fields do not appear to be on the new action page layout.
Indeed I created that quick action with these fields only, as you can see on the screenshot.
Can someone help?
In lightning,for some of the related list;new button is not getting displayed.For some it is getting displayed.
In classic all the related list have new buttons.
But in lightning that is not the case.

Resolution If you are a part of the Pilot Program "Salesforce Notes", the Standard "New Note" Publisher Action will not be visible in Salesforce1. There will be a separate "Note" action, and this is the action that will need to be added to your Page Layouts to use Notes in Salesforce1.
