Anatomy of Centro Record Blocks

Record Blocks are composed of distinct sections that can be individually customized per Salesforce Object Type (i.e. Lead, Contact, etc). To customize select the Customize option from the Record Block overflow menu next to the list of fields. Records may be customized for Internal and External Slack members separately to protect sensitive data in external conversations with customers and partners.

1. Custom Notification Message

A custom notification message can be set when the record blocks are sent to a channel using the Salesforce Flow Action or the Slack Workflow Step. This section is not populated by default.

2. Salesforce Record Fields and overflow menu options.

All overflow menu options require the user to connect to Salesforce and respect user permissions. Customize option is only available to Slack workspace admins or the Centro admin.

By default record fields are populated using the Salesforce Compact Layout from your Salesforce Org. However, fields may be customized in Centro using the Customize menu option. 

3. Record Actions

Record Actions can appear on all Salesforce record blocks in Slack and can be customized within Slack from the Customize menu.
