Marketing and Sales apps for Zoom

Here is a list of apps for Zoom that support your sales and marketing efforts.

13. Zoom for Salesforce

Salesforce is one of the most popular CRMs on the market, and Zoom’s cooperating app makes the software even more efficient. The extension allows users to schedule Zoom meetings from within Salesforce, and makes a record of the virtual meetings and audio calls in customer notes. The app also transfers recordings and registrant data from Zoom into Salesforce, eliminating the need to manually enter leads into the platform.

About the app

Before we start, here’s a picture of the finished app.

I build this in the portrait orientation, since I want it to be used in Teams meetings. That means, it has to fit in the meeting side panel.

In the upper half you see a classic timer which shows the remaining time and three buttons: Start, Stop and Reset.

You also have four buttons to set the timer to a certain duration. In this case I went for 10 seconds, 30 seconds, 3 minutes and 5 minutes.

In the lower half you see two things:

  1. A slider indicating the remaining time and a bar turning from blue to red as the time runs out.
  2. A pie chart divided into quarters to visualize the remaining time

Accessibility Note:

I’d like to make it very clear in the beginning, that the colors are no coincidence. Initially I started with a classic color scheme: red and green. But then I realized that red-green colorblindness is one of the most common visual disorders. I switched the colors to make sure that everybody can see everything on the screen. Learn more about accessibility.

On all the Power App applications you can find the checker symbol in the upper right corner. It’s a very easy step to make sure that your product (app or flow or slide or whatever) reaches more people. We want to include everyone, correct? Correct! 

Make it look pretty

I will split this part, again, in three parts:

  1. The timer in the upper part
  2. The slider and the chart in the lower part
  3. The background

The timer in the upper part

I added a picture of a timer I’ve made myself. You can download and use it with the whole sample from the PnP Power Apps samples github repository.

You click on Insert > Media > picture to use that picture in your app. Now place it in the middle of the screen (Power Apps helps you with snapping it to the middle if you drag it near the middle).

Now you can remove the border and background from your…

  • Timer input
  • The Start Button
  • The Stop Button
  • And the Reset Button

In the Timer properties, change these values to transparent:

I did the same for the Start, Stop and Reset Button and placed them in the middle of a circle icon, I’ve added (Insert > Icon > Circle). Place the button over the circle icon and align it in the middle and in the center. You do that by right-clicking on the button and use the align feature. With Reorder you can also place the icon under the button.

Now select the icon and the button and group them (Ctrl+G), so you can place them in the spare holes of the timer picture.

In the end I group the whole timer pictures and all controls and labels to place them easily.

The slider and the chart in the lower part

I set the size and position values of the circles like this, but you can place them wherever you like:

Now for the slider. Set the size and position values like this:

Set the Handle size value to 50.

Set the Rail value to 20.

The four-colored scale behind the timer are four rectangle icons that I placed over each other.

The colors

Now there is one last step, you have to set all the correct colors, And of course, I have another little trick, if you are lazy (like me).

I like to set all the colors I’m going to use in an app in a variable. Then I can set the Fill or color value for each element to the name of the variable and don’t have to remember the hexcode for every color over and over again.

You want to set those variables on the OnStart property of the app itself, so the colors will show when, you start the app.

Here is the function that I used:

 Here is an overview on variables and their purposes. 

Background_color:

the background of the app

Font_color:

Color property of the timer

Color property of the Duration buttons on the right

Color property of the scale labels next to the timer

Element_background:

Fill property of the duration buttons on the right

Fill property of the buttons to start, stop and reset the timer

ValueFill property of the slider

Element_color

Color property of the icons around the circles

Button_hover_Fill

HoverFill property of the timer

HoverFill property of the Duration buttons on the right

HoverFill property of the buttons to start, stop and reset the timer

TheRed

HandleFill property of the slider

Fill property of the red circle

Blurple_lightish

Fill property from the bottom rectangle behind the slider

Blurple_light

Fill property from the next larger rectangle behind the slider

Blurple_medium

Fill property of the blue circle on top

Fill property of the three-quarter circle

Fill property of the half circle

Fill property of the quarter circle

Blurple_darkish

Fill property from the second largest rectangle behind the slider

Blurple_dark

Fill property from the largest rectangle behind the slider

The result should look a lot like this:

As you can see, I added Fluent UI Icons on the buttons of the timer (if you don’t know how to use them, have a look at this awesome blog from Luise Freese), four lines around the circle to indicate quarters and halves and an arrow to make it look nice.

The lines around the circles are arrow icons.

The round arrow, is an image I uploaded. You can find it in my sample on PnP Power Platform Samples (you can also find the timer image and the icons. Everything’s included).

Final Thoughts

While some folks have still yet to master remembering to unmute the mic before speaking during a call, many professionals are ready and willing to upgrade and optimize their Zoom experiences. Zoom apps expand the video call platform’s capabilities and take remote meetings to the next level. These extensions save time and increase impact, and help remote workers become even more efficient with minimal effort.
