Install & Configure Glance for Salesforce

This section will help you install and configure Glance for Salesforce (Lightning and Classic). Glance has two packages available in Salesforce. Our legacy package is under the namespace G4S, and our latest package is under the namespace Glance. This guide covers the new Glance build. If you are using the legacy G4S version, you can find its setup guide here.

If you wish to upgrade to the latest version, your session data from the legacy version will stay as Events, while session data from the new version will be stored as Glance Sessions.

NOTE: You will need to rebuild any reports and dashboards you have on Glance sessions captured from Glance, and you will not be able to compare your G4S sessions with your Glance sessions in the same reports. Uninstalling the legacy package does not delete events from the previous version.

From a high level, the steps you need to complete are the following:

  1. Install the Glance package.
  2. Configure user permissions.
  3. Configure Glance company settings.
  4. Configure single sign-on.
  5. Add the Glance buttons to your users’ record pages.
