The Avonni Kanban Component provides a visual, drag-and-drop interface for managing workflow processes within the Salesforce Experience Cloud. It leverages the familiar Kanban methodology, displaying Salesforce records (standard or custom) as cards within customizable columns.

Key Features

  • Workflow Stages: Define columns to represent distinct stages of your workflow (e.g., "To Do," "In Progress," "Completed").

  • Card Customization: Configure which Salesforce fields are displayed on each card, providing essential context at a glance.

  • Drag-and-Drop Functionality: Update the status of a record/task by simply dragging its card to the appropriate column.

  • Real-time Updates: Changes are reflected instantly across your Experience Cloud site, fostering seamless collaboration.

Connect to Salesforce Data

This essential step in configuring your Avonni Kanban component establishes the connection between your Kanban board and the relevant data within your Salesforce environment.

Here's how it works:

  • Object Selection: Begin by choosing the specific Salesforce object (e.g., Accounts, Opportunities, custom objects, etc.) that contains the data you want your Kanban board to display.

  • Optional Filtering: If you wish to display only a subset of data from the selected object, use the filtering feature to set specific conditions. For instance, you might filter to show only "Open" opportunities or accounts within a certain region.

  • Grouping (Optional): Group your data to effectively organize your Kanban board. For example, grouping opportunities by "Stage" can create columns for "Prospecting," "Negotiation," etc.

  • Sorting: Select an "Order By" field and direction (ascending or descending) to determine the order in which the Kanban cards should appear.

  • Additional Fields: If you need to include fields in your Kanban that aren't directly used for display or interactions, add them in the "Additional Fields" section. This is particularly useful for fields you want to be searchable within Kanban's search bar.

Key Points

  • Choosing the right data source ensures your Kanban displays the information most relevant to your users.

  • Filtering and grouping streamline the board, making visualizing and managing specific work items easier.

Data Mappings configuration

The "Data Mappings" section establishes a precise connection between your Salesforce data and the visual elements of your Kanban board. Here's why this is crucial:

  • Accurate Display: Data mappings ensure that the information pulled from Salesforce fields is correctly displayed on the Kanban cards and within the board's columns. For example, you might map the Salesforce "Opportunity Name" field to the title of each Kanban card.

  • Functionality: Mappings also control how users interact with the Kanban board. For instance, mapping a "Status" field to the Kanban columns allows users to drag and drop cards to update the status directly within the board.

How it Works

  1. Select a Salesforce field from your configured data source.

  2. Map it to a Kanban attribute such as card title, description, column name, etc.

  3. Repeat this process for all the essential fields you want to include on the Kanban board
