CV Twitter feed is an effective app introduced by CloudVandana. Wonder what your Accounts, prospects, and contacts are tweeting about?

Do you want to keep yourself updated about the Tweets of your contacts, prospects, or accounts you are dealing with? Do you find it tedious to open Twitter in a separate Tab and search for each profile?

CV App Store is here to solve all your questions with the new CV Twitter Feed app. It is easy to configure and designed natively on Salesforce. You can get Twitter feeds of your Contacts, Leads, and Accounts on the Salesforce page without switching tabs, and you don’t need to go anywhere for that. 

Just enter the Twitter handle on the page, and you are good to go. Sounds easy, isn’t it?

So let’s dive into CV Twitter Feed Setup-

We recommend installing the app in the sandbox first and then install in production if everything looks fine.

  • Please enter the login details of your Salesforce Administrator User if you are presented with the login screen.
  • Once you are presented with the installation screen, you must select which of your users should be granted access to the CV Twitter Feed app, including all its components.

Most customers should select the middle option “Install for All Users”, which will ensure that all users have the proper permissions should they be assigned a license in the next step.

Click the Checkbox as shown to Acknowledge your installation.

Once you make your selection, click the Install button.

Once the installation is complete, click the Done button to return to your Salesforce org.  You may see a message stating that the installation is taking a long time to complete. In this case, you will receive an email once the installation finishes.

Now CV Twitter Feed is Installed in your System.

You can verify the same in the installed packages. From Setup, Search Installed Package and Click “Installed Packages” to view.
