Setting up the Service Console

The Service Console in Salesforce is an app that provides a comprehensive view of each customer, and where that customer is in your support process. You can create multiple console apps (the exact number depends on your organization’s custom app limits). The Service Console can be accessed from the App menu.

Here is how you can set up a Service Console for a user:

  1. Click Manage Users under Administer in the Setup screen of your Salesforce org to expand the Manage Users menu.
