Create Microsoft Word DOCX Files from Salesforce
Create a Microsoft Word document (.docx) with data from Salesforce.com.
This application will need to be built on a platform such as Heroku or Cloud Foundry that makes calls into Saleforce.com, fetches the data and then generates a Word document for download.
User will be able to navigate to an opportunity record’s standard detail page and click a custom button labelled “Create Word Document”. The user will then be directed to a new page where a newly created docx file will be downloaded to the user’s desktop.
The user will only be required to click the single custom button. The next dialog the user sees will be the standard browser’s download file dialog. The created docx will contain information from the Opportunity including the following fields. The exact format of the docx is up to the implementer, but should be fairly simple and straightforward.
1. Current user’s name
2. Account Name
3. Account Billing address
4. Opportunity Name
5. Opportunity Amount
6. Opportunity Description
7. Opportunity RichDescription (a custom rich text field.)
Not required but you'd receive extra credit for including an image in the Word doc that was attached to the Opportunity.
Upload all your source code as a zip (you can simply zip up your Eclipse project for convenience) and provide any documentation and/or instructions that are needed. Please be clear and concise with any setup instructions.
An SWF video of your application using Jing would also be helpful but not required.
Your submission will be judged by a panel of peers based upon this criteria. If you
would like to request an extension, please read Can challenge deadlines be extended for more time? on our FAQ. We do not want to grant extensions
unless there is a valid reason.
