This product is the result of ongoing work in the Plone community to increase re-usable tools for integrating Plone and Salesforce CRM. It began as a proof of concept product as to how you can pull Salesforce data into a Plone website. It is now growing in functionality to a much more useful tool that can be the basis for custom integration where one or more objects from Salesforce are brought into Plone. This can be used to make directories in Plone that cache data from Salesforce locally. In general, it requires further development to create desired interfaces.
