Ionic Tutorial for Mobile App Development - Part 2 - Web

In this tutorial, you create an expense report mobile application in Salesforce1. The application allows users to enter expenses, assign them to expense reports, and submit expense reports for approval. You build the entire application declaratively (without writing code).

What You Will Learn

  • Install the Salesforce1 Application
  • Create Mobile Layouts
  • Create Compact Layouts
  • Use the Chatter feed
  • Upload Images
  • Create Global Actions
  • Create Object Actions
  • Create Mobile Cards
  • Work with Related Lists
  • Use Visualforce Pages in Salesforce1

Prerequisites

  • To complete this tutorial, all you need is a modern browser and a connection to the Internet
  • No prior knowledge of Salesforce is required

Device Requirements

You don't need a mobile device to complete this tutorial: You can emulate the Salesforce1 Mobile App in your computer's browser. Instructions are provided in Module 2.

To install the Salesforce1 Mobile App, you need one of the following devices:

  • iPhone or iPad with iOS 7 or later
  • Android device with Android 4.2 or later

If your device is not supported to install the Salesforce1 Mobile App, you can run Salesforce1 in the device's browser on a larger number of devices. Consult this document for more information.

Reporting Issues

  • You can also use the Comments section at the bottom of each module to ask a question or report a problem.

Credits and Acknowledgments

An Expense Management application is a great use case for a tutorial: It's a well understood problem, not too big and not too small. I've used it for workshops and tutorials in different languages.

I also want to acknowledge Andres Perez who wrote an expense tracking sample application for the Salesforce1 App way before me. Our implementations are very different which is a testament to the versatility of the Salesforce1 Platform: Andres' implementation is more code-centric, and leverages jQuery Mobile. This implementation is entirely declarative.
