Using applications on the Add menu

Table of contents

If your tenant’s administrator installs and configures applications for you to use, use the add menu to share content resources to your CafeX tracks. The following applications are available to you:

Box No Yes  
Google Calendar Yes No Uses your Office suite integration.
See: Scheduling a meeting.
Google Drive Yes Yes Uses Office suite integration.
Jira Yes No  
Microsoft Calendar Tes No Uses your Office suite integration.

Microsoft OneDrive No Yes  
Microsoft Teams Yes No Uses your Office suite integration and assistant mailbox to access teams.

Slack Yes Yes  
Smartsheets No Yes Uses Publish the sheet to add your Smartsheet to the track.
See: Smartsheets—Sharing Permission Levels.
Zendesk Yes No  

If you cannot see an application on your add menu, it is likely because your tenant’s administrator has to configure it.

To understand how CafeX displays links you add to a track, see: Sharing resources.

To add a resource from an application to a track:

  1. Click Add.
  2. Click the appropriate application.
  3. If necessary, choose an account from Accounts.
    Some applications:

    • Use a common account for your organization.
    • Allow you to configure your own accounts. See: Adding your own account.
  4. Use the dialog to find and select a resource to add to the track.
    For example, the following dialog is for adding Salesforce content:

  5. When you are ready click Add.

  1. Click Add.
  2. Click the appropriate application.
  3. Choose AccountsAdd account
  4. Follow the on screen instructions, read the permissions, then click Allow.
    For example, Salesforce requires you allow the following permissions:
    2019-09-03_11_13_04-Allow_Access____Salesforce.png
  5. CafeX connects to your application account.
  6. In your track, reload CafeX and your accounts appears under Accounts.

Important: If you are no longer a track member of a track that uses your account to access content, track members can still read the content in the track.

Removing your own accounts

  1. From the fast track menu, click your avatar.
  2. Click Profile.
  3. Under Your application accounts, click to remove an account

Important: After you remove your account, CafeX cannot access the content and resources you have shared on tracks. Track members may not be able to access the content, unless they have explicit permission to access the content.
