Knowledge Tree for Salesforce User Roles

with 3 comments

UX that makes you say things like, "Gee Whizz" and "Cowabunga"

Many moons ago @ratherGeeky was searching for an AppExchange app that would neatly display user roles so that she could be the best admin she could be. I had a poke around and there were a few nice apps out there but nothing with a simple, neat display of user roles.

Since then CloudSpokes was created, and a competition to that effect was released using the concept and tools that I was going to use (@jeffdonthemic smells like turnips btw). The outcome of the competition was a few very cool apps, but nothing that was package-ready so I pressed ahead anyway.

I’m happy to announce that you can now get Knowledge Tree for Roles on the AppExchange for free. It’s definitely a point solution, very specific in the problem it’s trying to solve but I think it does that well. I have a roadmap for the product and will [ever so slowly] be releasing new features e.g. drag and drop will be killer.

If you install the app and like it then please, please, please (please (please)) review it as it helps exposure and will hopefully lead to me getting more time to work on it. If you don’t like it let me know why via email ( and I’ll do my best to turn your frown upside down.

  1. Looks like a really great app. Unfortunately the one Sandbox Org I want to install this into does not have Chatter enabled – and I can’t enable it for them because they’re not interested in Chatter yet. Is there a chance the App can be updated to not require Chatter be enabled?

    • There are a fair number of people asking for this so I’ve put it on the roadmap.

    • Should updated this some time back – the package will use chatter if it’s available but isn’t dependent on it.
