How to make software development on the Salesforce platform developer-friendly?
While building applications, software engineers use different tools to write and debug code. When we started Salesforce development back in 2013, we couldn’t find a tool that would ideally meet our needs. This led us to build our own one based on Visual Studio - well-known, very popular, and built with an idea of a comfortable development tool in mind, multifunctional IDE. As a result, we received a brand new tool for Salesforce development and administration. We can rightfully call it a success as today it is popular and in demand both in the corporate world and in the freelance consultants’ environment.
Today we are happy to introduce the integration of The Welkin Suite IDE and a Salesforce-specific release management service Flosum. Read more to see how you can work with your Flosum Continuous Integration pipeline directly from the IDE.
It's just 2.5 months since we've released Welkin's Data Table for Flows component for free on AppExchange, and we've heard a lot of warm feedback. Among that feedback, we've received a couple of important suggestions, and we felt that we need to share them with you asap - in the new version of the component! Check out what's new.
Let’s talk today about being an #AwesomeAdmin, but not a regular one - productive and happy #AwesomeAdmin! We will share a handful of tips and tricks on how to transform inefficient and slow routines into something that you’ll complete in seconds to free up yourself for exciting Salesforce challenges. Find out what these tricks are in this post and in our webinars.
The major reason for the reduced productivity…
Salesforce Lightning Flow is one of the best tools to build rich and customized user interfaces with minimal effort and zero code. And a table is the best way of representing a list of records for a user in an intuitive interface.
Wondering why there's no built-in data table component for flows? We too are wondering! Or, I would say, were wondering :)
Today is the big day for The Welkin Suite team - we have finally published our first component on the AppExchange - the free and highly customizable Tooltip component for lightning. Read more to get to know about this component, how it can save you time, help your users, and what next to expect from us!
Maybe you have already noticed that The Welkin Suite really enjoys cutting trail and getting to new places before anyone else. Looking back on the trails we blazed, the Welkin suite was the first IDE to spearhead the effort to have a retrospective debugger, and we are proud that this pushed the other players to incorporate this technology to make life easier for Developers. The Welkin Suite was also the first IDE to look at how Salesforce Administrators really didn’t have any powerful tools, and because of that, they had to waist a lot of time to work on really quite simple, but yet time-consuming operations like managing permission sets. And because of that, we were the first to start to deliver a fully functional integrated workplace for Salesforce Admins, and thousands of people are using it right now to save boatloads of time.
It is excellent to work with people from all around the world - there are always some countries where it is a "common holiday time" at any given day. So we can still think about someone who enjoys their well-deserved vacation while working on a new release of the IDE
But, enough lyrics - today we are releasing both Windows and Mac versions of The Welkin Suite, and we're finally bringing multi-project support for Mac! Other than that we've included a bunch of other updates and fixes that you've requested.
Our team frequently gets "homework assignments" from the community - either by suggesting features and improvements or by lettings us know about bugs or "strange behavior" in certain cases. Today we'd like to provide you with our latest homework - The Welkin Suite Bloom R31 and Blaze R24 with a bunch of fixes and improvements that you've recently reported to us. Read more and assess our homework
Today we move forward with The Welkin Suite's functionality for Adminevelopers by adding the new Validation Rules editor to the sObjects Inspector to both Windows and Mac versions of the IDE. Additionally, you will have an ability to delete all debug logs from your organization, if you've encountered a strange Salesforce behavior and got stuck with gigabytes of logs in the org.
