  1. Hi Deepika, the blog post about the 10 Salesforce Extensions was very helpful, especially the sixth item about the force.com utility belt. Thank you.

  2. Daniel Cadwell

    The whatfix and express login extensions are my favorites so far I am still investigating and exploring

  3. Paul A LeRoy

    Whatfix on Salesforce by Whatfix.com looks very interesting. Would help in solving the problem of “Ok I have Salesforce installed, how do I train my users”. Or… ok it’s installed, what do I do now? Seems there is a big gap in Salesforce install and Salesforce usage for new yours, as well as new employee ‘onboard’ training. In short, there is a need to publish user best practices (methods and procedures).

    Thank you for the Extensions list, I just installed the Salesforce Hotkeys and Navigator, these both look like something I’ve needed for a long time!

    My current favorite extension is hands-down the Salesforce Inspector. It is by far the best, greatest, and most amazing extension for an Admin or Developer that I’ve ever found, I use it every day for queries, data loads, record updates (especially when a field isn’t on the page layout!) and even to find API names of fields in a very big org.
