What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

Teams using Salesforce Communities to interact with existing members of their campus communities can easily create in-person and virtual events using Blackthorn Events native Salesforce application. These branded event registration pages can be used for everything from college campus admission events to healthcare information sessions. Salesforce administrators can set up event branding and event templates so that event planners with Community licenses can easily create basic events and invite guests without needing a full Salesforce cloud account. This leaves event planners with more time to work on other essential tasks.


Salesforce Communities are branded spaces for your employees, customers, and partners to connect. These spaces are customizable, and with the power of Blackthorn, you can add event registration elements like event landing pages, event lists, and calendars. Our event builder can manage both simple and complex events, giving teams the flexibility to use it for any type of event on your campus.


Interactive events list in a Salesforce Community

Registration for your events is simple. Once a user signs in to your Community, it authenticates the user so you can cater which events, member-specific tickets, and discounts that particular user sees. Additionally, existing information in Salesforce pre-populates for that user so they can quickly register and checkout. 


A great example is campus orientation events at universities. Student life and academic teams can personalize the orientation experience and create a sense of community before admitted students even step on campus. Cater “meet your dorm roommate” meetings to students or other required sessions that familiarize them with your campus. When parents log in, they can see sessions relevant to them, such as “Completing Financial Aid” or “Learn about Campus Safety”. 


Blackthorn Events is a native to Salesforce application, meaning all of your attendee information is securely stored and organized within Salesforce. Attendee records are created upon registration and related to a lead or contact. For virtual events, attendance status is updated automatically to “attended” once they join the webinar or virtual meeting.
