Elements is a Salesforce strategic partner
Elements is an enterprise architecture application. It enables you to be more productive, drawing diagrams that are instantly integrated into the other architectural artifacts. Siloed documentation increases the risk of miscommunication, increases rework and wastes time.
Architecture diagrams are important living documents that need access controls, versioning and collaboration.
Extending the Salesforce notation
Salesforce Diagrams’ potential has increased due to the robust collaboration and connection features.
Whenever Salesforce develops a new template, it will be created using Elements and can be freely downloaded.
Taking diagramming to the next level
Elements has been designed to create and manage enterprise documentation and treat them as living, valuable artifacts that have a life long beyond the project. Any enterprise application must have access controls, versioning, collaboration, an authorization cycle, and linkages to other systems artifacts.
Trusted: Secure, Compliant, Reliable
All the architecture artifacts on one collaborative application enable you to build secure, compliant, reliable solutions.
Easy: Simple, Automated, Engaging
Quickly build content easily understood by all stakeholders, combined with system-generated documentation.
Adaptable: Resilient, Composable
Accelerate change with automated org impact and dependency analysis and system-generated documentation.
Architect best practice
Extending the Salesforce Diagram standard
Elements has opened opportunities to make the current Salesforce Diagram standard more powerful.
Such as the dynamic header that is hidden when not needed or the ERD objects automatically linked to the object in the metadata dictionary when resources are added. Or version control is managed down to 4 levels.
Single documentation platform
Every architecture diagram and more
With Elements, you can draw the different Salesforce diagram types, document automation (Flow and Process Builder Workflows) and map business processes. Automatically building a diagram for existing Flow will be a game changer.
The power is in the connected view
Every artifact is a data point. But when you can see the connections between them, you move from information to intelligence. And because they all live in Elements, creating the linkages is automated or just a click away.
It’s made our lives easier using Elements. I feel more confident that we’ll be able to answer questions accurately and quickly. It’s a tool that we can rely on to offer accurate, quick support to our end users, so really, it makes us look good.Vivian Ralls
