Salesforce Lightning Bolts: Sparking Student-Faculty Engagement

April 10, 2019 Rashi Bajaj

 What are Salesforce Lightning Bolts?
Salesforce Lightning Bolts accelerate innovation at your institution. They are built on Appirio’s technology best-practices and deep industry expertise, containing Lightning Flows, Lightning Apps, Communities Templates, and the supporting business logic and modeling.

Key features of Salesforce Lightning Bolts:

Equipped with industry-specific templates developed from lessons learned and best practices
Certified, ready to go partners available on the Salesforce AppExchange
What do Salesforce Lightning Bolts do?

Bolts are industry-focused accelerators that are best-practice starting points. They can be customized and expanded based on specific needs.

What are the top three key capabilities of Lightning Bolts?

●      Lightning Apps for your workers
●      Lightning Community Templates for your customers
●      Lightning Flows to tie it all together
With the help of easy to install and configure Lightning Bolts, Appirio recently designed and built the University of San Francisco (USF) Student 360 Community. Appirio’s Student Community bolt not only provided a massive head start in crafting a solution, but also a flexible foundation upon which we could build a fully customized solution, which was a  USF requirement. Some of the key components of the implementations were Bolt, which helped us align with USF branding guidelines, accessibility, responsive design, success teams, student class schedule, and student appointments and status.
