Introducing Salesforce shape library and templates in Lucidchart
Reading time: about 2 min
Lucidchart helps teams to clarify complexity, align insights, and build the future through intelligent diagramming. To make the diagramming process even more dynamic, we have created shape libraries. Shape libraries standardize best practices, save time during diagram development, and illustrate key connections and relationships.
Now we’re excited to partner with Salesforce and offer a customized shape library to help you design and visualize your Salesforce architecture in Lucidchart. This new shape library will enhance the design process and provide consistency across teams and other stakeholders.
Let’s dive into the details of what this partnership looks like.
Shape library overview
The Salesforce shape library offers many new benefits to Lucidchart users. Easily customize templates, charts, and projects to make them even more dynamic. Beyond the shape library, users can toggle configurations on and off, add and remove attributes, snap icons into place, and nest cards inside one another.
Lucidchart supports a large number of the standard icons used in Salesforce diagrams, such as:
- Generic product icons
- Industry icons
- Platform services icons
- Common Salesforce icons
- Exclusive Salesforce logo icon shapes
This shape library will provide seamless, visual alignment for teams across the Salesforce ecosystem to build new resources according to best practices.
Here are a few of the features you will have access to with the Salesforce shape library:
- Shapes that are both Lucidchart-built and Salesforce-built
- An extensive collection of shapes and logos
- Rare product icons
- Customizable cards
- Salesforce headers
