Salesforce Lightning Component Options
Ambition makes available two Lightning Components that can be utilized within Salesforce. First we'll show you the two options, and second we'll show step-by-step setup instructions.
Lightning Component Option 1
Ambition Lightning Widget
Full Ambition experience similar to the Ambition tab
Lightning Component Option 2
Ambition Lightning Sidebar Widget
Simplified experience showcasing high level Activity Score, Objective Score, Metrics, and Competitions.
- Note for Admin: In Ambition, users can customize the data that the AmbitionLightningSidebarWidget displays. Under your user settings in Ambition, select a preferred landing page (personal, manager, team, or organizational view).
While our components can be embedded anywhere using the Lighting App Builder, we also love the Utility Bar... it's so nice to quickly overlay Ambition on top of what you're working on, check progress, then minimize and get back to work. Sure beats context-switching from tab to tab!
