Timeline S-Control Is Very Cool – Too Bad I Can’t Use It.

January 31, 2007 at 1:28 pm 1 comment

Salesforce Labs just came out with the Timeline S-Control application that is incredibly easy to install and has some great functionality.  It allows you to place a visual timeline on any of your Accounts, Opportunities, Contacts, or Cases and quickly scroll through all of the items in a rich visual format.  The original application came out of MIT and is called Simile.  I was really excited by some of the examples and began to implement the application until I realized it is only for Enterprise editions and higher.  I really need to beg Salesforce to open up the API in some other pricing format.  It is still not practical for my company to invest thousands of dollars per year extra for EE when the only functionality I need is the API.  If you’re a professional edition user like me and want to cast your vote for API access please vote here or here

    Just between you, me, and everyone else reading or streaming this blog, contact your Salesforce sales rep. API access is available a la carte for PE. They don’t publicize it, but it’s an option. Shh….! 😉
