Why would we create Celebrations or use the Trailshred Audio Player at all?

To be honest idk dawg, maybe just to spice up your life a little bit and have some fun? You could make a super sweet easter egg for your Salesforce org. Maybe you wanna boost your Sales teams morale with something interesting and unexpected? No matter how you slice this banana bread chocolate chip pancake it all boils down to choosing to do something that’s a little fun for the people around you and sometimes that’s the best thing you could build. Everybody gets tired of being a serious fanci boi all day. Take a stroll down having a little fun lane for once my guy.

How to use the Trailshred Audio Player to play some ultra lit audio for your Sales Broz

And now we get to the guuuuuuddddddddddddd stuff. Salesforce has created a relatively simple and lightweight unmanaged package called the Trailshred Audio Player to allow you to play audio you upload to static resources by playing an LWC on lightning record pages. Let’s check out how to use this thing.

1) Install the unmanaged package here:

2) After the Trailshred Audio Player has been installed in your org, create and upload any audio file as a static resource (the audio must be less than 5mb and be an mp3 or wav file).

3) Copy the name of the static resource you just created.

4) Go to Setup -> Custom Metadata Types -> Trailshred Settings -> Manage Records

5) Create a new Trailshred Settings record and place the name of your static resource audio file in the “Audio Static Resource Path” field, then pick the Object you want the audio to run on, pick the field you want the audio to trigger on and the value for that field it should trigger on.

6) That’s it playur, you did it! On to the next section!

Setting up the Lightning App Record Page to Play the Celebration

Alright alright alright, we’re almost there, this is the last step and it’s super easy. You gotta create a lightning record page app. Let’s check out how to get it done son.

1) Go to Setup -> Lightning App Builder and click the “New” button to create a new lightning app record page (or choose to update an existing one).

2) Search for the “Path” component on the lightning app builder page and place it on the page. This will add your confetti celebration.

3) Search for the “Trailshred Audio Player” in the component search in the lightning app builder and place it at the bottom of the page. This component is invisible (because it just plays audio) so after placing it you should just see it represented by an empty space.

4) Save and Activate your lightning app record page.

5) That’s it! You did it homie! You finally had some fun!

That’s it guys, hopefully you had a little fun building it and someone gets a good laugh out of whatever you built!
