Using it

The Salesforce integration widgets provide many of the features available in the Salesforce web interface:

View top sellers

The widget displays the top sellers in your Salesforce instance. It displays their profile photo, any change they have had in position on the leaderboard in the past 30 days, their name and email, their total sales, and their monthly average. People are ordered by their total sales and you can adjust how many are displayed when configuring the widget.

View top accounts

Hovering over a profile displays the option to show details on each member’s top three accounts. It also provides a link to see the accounts directly in Salesforce.
