Yes...I made a custom tab to be the default landing tab. That tab is linked to a VF page where i wrote the code for showing pop up...

 

so it comes everytime a user logs into salesforce.

You could do this via an HTML component on the home page that whenever the user hits the home page it is displayed.

 

This can be annoying for users though - is there any reason you wouldn't just display it in large type etc on the home page?

thanks Bob, but i want that pop up to come whenever user logs into salesforce. can u help me out. its urgent

I'm not aware of any way to tell that the user has just logged in.  All we've been able to do in the past is add behaviour to a specific page which we take to be the landing page of the user.

Actually i want to create a popup saying "welcome to salesforce" for a user whenever he logs into salesforce. The popup should come along with the Home page.

 

This popup should come for all the users.

You can manage the home page by moving into <Your User Name> ->Customize->Home-> Home Page Components.

 

You can define a new component using HTML, and call the Java function to show the pop up.

 

Home page cannot be modified as such, so you will have to play around the components and find out what is right for you.

yeah i did that...but if i do that then i have to click on that home page component to see the pop up..

 

 

but my requirement is that pop up should come automatically when a user logs in...so if i go by this method then pop up is not coming automatically

 

my pop up should be auto pop up when user logs in..

Hello vinsriv, can you be a little more specific on how you accomplished this and any code involved? I have the same exact request to create a pop up box that shows everytime a user logs into the system. Thanks!
