Winners - Salesforce Home Page Messages

Salesforce lets its customers and users know when they're about to release or have released new features - so why can't we?

This challenge called for a framework to provide a way for an administrator to display an easily customizable message on the Salesforce Home page with details on new features and system notifications (or anything else "notification worthy").

almopeluche took first place and $750 (his second win!) with this elegant solution which supports HTML, and provides a checkbox option to allow the user to dismiss the message permanently. almopeluche also used a custom object in his design to track user sessions and provided multi-language support! The addition of an unmanaged package would have been the icing on the cake for this excellent submission:

chiragmehta84 came in second and took $350 with this equally elegant submission. The UI and rich text option helped set this submission apart from the rest of the competition:

antenna rounded out third and took $200 for his solid submission - check the video below!

Congrats to all the winners!


  1. How can I install the code for one of these packages? I have been searching for a similar solution and would love to have one of these installed in my org!

  2. I agree - if any of the developers would like to share their innovations I'd be grateful, and happy to assist with any further development ideas.

  3. I'd be open to testing and providing feedback on any of these solutions if the developer is happy to share them.
