Showing Chatter Pictures without being actively logged in

Written by ShamrockCRM on August 16, 2012 – 1:03 pm

I am developing some PHP code that requires displaying Chatter photos on a web page. The code does not maintain an active browser session with something like OAuth. It simply logs in with the SOAP API, accesses the data, and displays data. Since Chatter photos are stored internal to Salesforce.com and require an active session, this causes an issue. Well, I found a great blog posts that solves this problem. Take a look here if you ever run across this problem.

Adding Google Calendar to your Salesforce Homepage

Written by ShamrockCRM on July 16, 2009 – 8:08 pm

Did you know that you can embed your shared Google Calendar directly on your Salesforce.com home page?  Well, this can easily be done and it is a GREAT feature.

First, go to your Google Calendar page and click the “Settings” link on the left.

Next, select the Calendar you are interested in…in my case, Consulting.

Salesforce.com Gmail Google Calendar

Next, you will see a section where you can receive code to “embed” your calendar on a web page.  Copy the code.

Salesforce.com Google Calendar

Now, go into Salesforce setup and go to the Home Page Component section.

Add another Home Page Component of type “HTML Area.”  Hit the “View in HTML” checkbox and paste in the code.  Save.

Salesforce.com Google Integration

Now, add this home page component into a Salesforce.com Home Page Layout  and take a look at your system wide shared Google Calendar!

Watch Salesforce show you how to do this on video!
