A few months back, we hosted a developer challenge to build a FullContact Google Chrome Extension for Salesforce.
Today, the early beta is available on the Chrome Webstore.
The goals of the FullContact Chrome Extension were:
- Enable contextual FullContact content inside of Salesforce.com without installing a Salesforce Application.
- Eliminate tedious data entry with an AutoFill function.
- Showcase what kind of applications are possible with the FullContact API.
We like to think of it like “Mingly, but for Salesforce.”
It’s an early beta (like, version 0.1), so there are going to be several opportunities for improvement. Feel free to email suggestions anytime to email@example.com (or just grab the code and make a pull request!)
UPDATE: As of summer 2014, users of some Salesforce versions may find the FullContact Chrome Extension for Salesforce does not work correctly.
Please be aware that this is a legacy Chrome extension, and your edition of Salesforce may not be supported.
