Custom application is a group of tabs that gives users access to objects that address their business needs.
By default, there are standard applications (Sales, Marketing, Call Center …) in which we can customize the tabs.
Creating a custom application is done in four steps:
- Create application details (label, name, description, etc.)
- Add a logo
- Select tabs
- Assign the application to the required profiles.
Both standard and custom applications are displayed in the application launcher.
Example: The recruitment department needs daily access to the Candidates, Interviewers, and Post tabs. The Administrator has therefore created an application grouping these tabs under the name of Recruitment.
Nb: Creating a custom application replaces the Salesforce logo next to the global search.
