Salesforce Canvas is one of the most powerful new tools in your arsenal. With Canvas, you can integrate your existing web applications directly into Salesforce, allowing the app to interact with your data as the logged in user. The use cases are literally endless, but unfortunately placement is currently not. Up to now, you could only place a Canvas app within Chatter or a Visualforce page, forcing you to add some extra code every time you wanted to drop it on a page layout. Well no longer!
Summer ’14 is coming, and with it, you’ll be seeing a lot of great updates from Salesforce. Among them, you will now be able to add Canvas apps directly to page layouts, mobile cards, and Salesforce1 navigation. This means less code and more possibilities. Some infinities are bigger than other infinities, and this update makes Canvas more awesome than ever before!
