- •Click Follow to follow a record. After following, you can receive notifications related to the record in your Salesforce account;
- •Share record information to chats.
You can install the Salesforce Connector app from the Lark App Directory. In case you see an alert that Salesforce Connector hasn't been enabled or installed in your organization, contact your administrator to enable it for your tenant.
