4.3 / 5
We will cover the following tasks in 30 minutes:
Introduction and Demo
In this task, we are first introduced to the Rhyme interface and video controls.
Next, we will sign up for a 30-day free trial Salesforce Platform account and login.
Build Your First App
Let’s now create an app called
Wildlife Reserve to help us track our journey through our local wildlife reserve — by keeping track of the areas we want to visit and the animals we want to see.
(Continued) Build Your First App
In this task, we will create Custom Objects, Custom Tabs, and Records for our new app.
Checkpoint custom object has four fields (Checkpoint Name) and three fields generated by the system (Created By, Owner, Last Modified By). As we build out our app, we can add more fields to refine the places we want to track.
Test Your App
Your app is now ready to use! Keep in mind that it currently has limited features. We will customize it in the next task. You can start by adding a few of the checkpoints in the Wildlife Reserve.
Add Quick Actions
The Salesforce Lightning Platform automatically creates a mobile version of your app for you when you create a web app. One way that mobile apps can be customized is through a
Quick Actions let you execute the most important actions right at your fingertips. These actions are added to the
Publisher, which determines the Quick Actions you see in the Action bar.
Run Your Finished App on a Mobile Device
The Salesforce mobile app can be accessed in three ways:
- Installing it on your phone from Google Play or Apple’s App Store
- Using your mobile browser to access
- Using Chrome Developer Tools on the Desktop
In this task, we will run the Salesforce mobile app in Chrome. Chrome’s Developer Tools lets us simulate our browser as a mobile device. This way, we can preview the mobile experience for our Wildlife Reserve app, right from our desktop!
This was amazing!! Just one little thing was that because my screen wasn't really big and the video moves with the mouse (which is great because I can see what the instructor is doing), the instructor was moving a bit too much and it made me kind of dizzy to look at.
