  1. Hi Ashish,
    Do you know how new versions of the app are applied or rolled out if I install the managed package from the AppExchange? For example, If I have version 1.8 installed and a new version 1.9 is released, will the new version automatically be pushed to my org or will I have the option to install/upgrade the app myself?
    Thanks

    1. Hi Graham, I think it depends on the publisher on how they want to push upgrades.

      1. Publishers can publish an upgrade for a managed package and notify installers that the new version is available. Installers of a managed package can then install the upgrade
      2. Or publisher can push the upgrades automatically.

      Thanks, Ashish

  2. Hello, thanks for this article, I am interested in this component, know if it is possible to modify the fields in the tooltip? If so, I have a hard time figuring out where. For my part, I want to display a chronology of the reminders made on each opportunity. Thank you for your help

      Hi Daill, I am not sure if I have understood the question. Can you either provide the screenshot or refer to slide no. of the step-by-step guide along with an explanation of what exactly you are trying to achieve?

  3. Do you know if it is possible to specify a different date for the oops? Currently I believe it is creation date but if inserted, it would be better to set a custom date field.

    1. Hi Jaime. The configuration is set through the custom metadata type ‘Timeline_Configuration__mdt’. Goto -> Setup -> Custom Metadata Types. Here you’ll find records for everything plotted on the timeline. You can open existing records or create new ones (to plot custom objects). The Position Date Field holds the API name of the date field to use when positioning the record. Simply update it with your chosen field.
