Refer to this Salesforce article for the list of web browsers officially compatible with Salesforce Canvas widgets



Configure My Domain for Your Salesforce Org

A crucial prerequisite is to configure My Domain for your Salesforce Org in advance, as most Org Admins skip doing that. See this Salesforce guide or follow the instructions below to configure it.

My Domain serves as a native Salesforce framework that allows embedding custom widgets like Revenue Grid / RG Email Sidebar. My Domain is also required to install RGES Managed Package.


Salesforce automatically assigns a default a domain name to any newly created org. However, it’s recommended to change the default domain to the custom one to prevent any issues with using the full scope of Revenue Grid managed package functionality.

Complete configuration Steps 1-4 to set up My Domain:

Setup Step 1

  • Log in to Salesforce with Admin credentials
  • Switch to Lightning Experience as described in this Salesforce article
  • Click the Gear (Setup Menu) icon in the upper right corner of the page to open Salesforce Setup menu
  • In the Quick Search field in the upper left corner, type “My Domain” to quickly find the necessary setting



Setup Step 2

  • On My Domain Settings page, click Edit

  • Generate a relevant domain for your Org and enter it into My Domain Name field


  • After that, click Check Availability to see if you can use this domain name


  • If the name is not available, generate another available one


  • If the name is available, click Save button


  • Next, the domain provisioning will start



Setup Step 3

  • As soon as the domain is set up and provisioned, you’ll receive a confirmation email in Salesforce Admin’s mailbox
