MobileCaddy Monthly Digest – August edition covering Salesforce mobile community apps, self-registration, Salesforce Winter ’18, and more!


Hot on the heels of our debut newsletter in July, this month I’d like to focus on custom mobile apps built on the Salesforce Community Cloud.

With a growing number of organisations now using communities, coupled with the demand from members to access via their mobile devices, many of us are now researching and evaluating how to best deliver fully branded and often sophisticated mobile community apps.

So whilst this is definitely an exciting area to be working in, it’s not without its fair share of challenges, as well as new concepts and nuances. With that in mind, let’s see if these articles can offer some guidance and inspiration!

Navigate your options for mobilising Salesforce communities with these guidelines

There are currently three broad types of technology solutions to choose from when it comes to these apps, and each has its own unique set of arguments for and against. Here we’ve provided an in-depth look at those choices, helping you make the best decision for your own mobile Salesforce community apps.

How to enable self-registration for custom mobile community apps

The possibility of self-registration means engaging with an organisation through mobile community apps is faster, simpler, and more accessible than ever for community members. Here’s a straightforward step-by-step guide to enabling self-registration within your own Salesforce communities.


Product Updates

Further support for Salesforce standard objects

Looking through the latest set of new MobileCaddy releases, there’s a stack of standard Salesforce objects now fully supported covering activities, multiple product objects, and a whole lot more.

Even smoother migration with our new Automated Metadata Checker ️

Keeping the paranoid amongst us happy too, it’s good to see our Automated Metadata Checker giving users that extra level of comfort when migrating applications from org to org.

You can learn more about these, as well as other exciting new additions, in the August MobileCaddy Product Update (blog, video, and podcast). ️

Before you go!

With all this talk about Salesforce mobile community apps, it felt right to reprise an article about how our friends at Appirio delivered an award-winning community app for The Travel Corporation. This just goes to show what can be achieved when the right approach and technology align.
