The best feature which we like about Flossum was its easy installation and its ability to fully configure. The amount of time it has saved for us is incomparable. It's hard to believe that its version control features are built for Salesforce to uniquely handle lightning components and process builder.

The merge functionality of Flossum has saved us a ton of time and unlike other release management tools, the implementation was quick and simple and their support team was easily reachable. Despite all these features, the tool is intuitive and easy to learn.

In short, Flossum is one powerful elegant complete integrated solution with version control, merge editing, deployment capability and static code analysis. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Are you looking for a Release Management tool that is natively built on Salesforce?

How about a rollback feature when deploying, and no need for a CLI to get started!

Would you want to relate you change requests to JIRA?

What about easily detecting conflicts in your code?

I attended the Professional Level Certification Course and achieved a professional level certification.

This tool will solve all of these problems, and is Lightning ready, as I have found this to be a game changer.

Filtering option for Metadata Components to be added for Deployment

Manage Apex Tests feature is awesome.

It is secure as there are various Permissions to be assinged to each user in order to access this tool.

It is User friendly and is self-explanatory most of the times.

Easy to use, Easy to find what is changed in source org so that we can select required component

Provide powerfull version control mechanism as well as seamlessly integrates with my preference of Version Control tools like Github and Bitbucket.

It support 100% of Salesforce component types in comparison to other release management tool. Additionally, the features, options and values that are able to be captured is very thorough and it very much is the case that Flosum has done this before and thought of everything. When you use a tool that is as well thought out as Flosum, you gain trust in the tool and company behind because you know that have done the work to make your job easier. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Product can be more briefly documented and optimized. Less resources available as of now. User interface improvements needed as well. Apart from that rest is good and there are no as such thing to dislike about it in particular. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Just one word comes from my mouth for Flosum :- Awesome. Flosum really helped me in my career as I got promoted due to certification i did from Flosum. Also i further referred Flosum to 8 of my friends who also did certification from Flosum and they all were very happy about the same.

Some points which i like at Flosum :- 1. Easy and user friendly UI. Easy to install.

2. Flosum dashboard is very good as compared to others.

3. Test coverage can be checked all together instead of doing it one by one for different classes.

4. Full integration with Git, SVN, Jira etc.

5. Asks for various permission due to which the security is very good.

Coming to webinar, it was very informative and good. It rally helped me to gain deep knowledge for Flosum. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The guys explained the whole tool in a very detailed manner and answered all the questions asked. The tool is super easy to understand and the fact that all the data is kept to the org owner itself and nothing can be seen even by the Flosum team is heart winning. In a big team working on the same project, the main challenges could be managing all the code, keep a tab on project efficiency, regular backups, performance reporting, and many other things. With Flosum, everything can be managed with just some mouse clicks. Overall, Flosum is a life and time saver! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I recently came across Flosum and must admit was impressed by the idea and functionality.

It's an amazing tool for QA, Developers and Release Manages to work together on one development project.

On the developer side, I found it' really handy to use 'Pull request feature' (an email notification) to let team members review the code. They can view all the changes in the code and left comments for me.

You can also schedule a snapshot summary, use feature branch, approve/reject the code, merge branches, use automatic conflict resolution tool, etc

And it's fully built on Force.com. If you're a SF admin or Apex developer or your company already a SF client, I'd suggest give this tool a try. You'd find it's easy to navigate in and grasp all the concepts. Could expect a better productivity for sure.

Great job guys! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

1. Flosum interface and functionalities are user friendly. It is designed specifically for Salesforce and works as its integral part. Its interface looks like an integral part of Salesforce Lightning, which makes it easy to use for both Admins and Citizen Developers.

Its intuitive interface and click-not-code approach makes it easy to use for anyone who can use Salesforce and does not have developer knowledge. Therefore, it makes lives of Admins, who find it challenging to learn other solutions like Git, easier.

2. As a result, Flosum can help to increase adoption and user satisfaction through improving change management process.

3. Flosum can save a lot of time for both developers and users, since it eliminates a big part of deployment time by automating complex and manual tasks.

4. Flosum's snapshots summarize all the changes that were done in the given period thus providing a detailed overview of which components were changed.

5. Flosum makes it easy for the peer reviewers to compare the differences in the code.

6. Merging is easy and user friendly: any conflicts are detected, all component types merging is supported. What I especially like is that merging branches provides possibility to pull code between versions to resolve these conflicts by pulling code into versions.

7. Deployment is simple and it allows to deploy changes into multiple pipelines and target orgs.

I'd like to stress two especially useful features of deployment in Flosum:

- rollback to undo the changes deployed in instance and

- possibility to reuse this deployment without the need to recreate it

8. There is a repository.

9. Flosum offers full integration with Git, Bitbucket, SVN, JIRA etc.

10. Flosum helps to keep the data secure since it allows to monitor all events and changes throughout all the instances involved and provide visibility into each developer's actions. Moreover, its repository and full version control functionality are located within Salesforce platform eliminating any possible security issues that may be present in other external Systems.

Flosum is the ever evet best tool that we used for native version control. We are a team of freelancer agency that build with different team mates all over world. We help our specific client in USA for toiler made Salesforce solution. All over the world and in different time zones, we have 9 Salesforce developers who are working in same or different projects.

We have used some native or cloud base version control tools but it was not actually we wish. Git and the others was mainly intended for programmatic changes, because of this it can't handle declarative merge components or complex

components that Salesforce utilizes such as lightning components, aura definition bundles or static resources.

Flosum is the best fit solution for our needs and business. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Actually nothing, everything is better than I expected Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

As a Salesforce administrator and developer, Interface and utilizes a click-not-code approach so that anyone who can use Salseforce can use Flosum. The best thing, a Flosum implementation can be completed in about 2 or 3 days, not the weeks and months! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

If as an admin or developer makes even a simple change to one of the orgs it is extremely difficult to decipher what change has been made and synch with that respective branch with using Git. But Flosum offers bi-directional, real-time synchronization between any branch in Flosum to any other Salesforce org, which ensures code-overwrites will never happen.

Flosum provides one integrated solution and is a one-stop solution for all Release Management process for Salesforce

Its provides an UI interface for developer to commit the changes to a feature branch. This avoids the complexity of using any git terminal or VS code editor code commit process, developer can make the changes in their org and flosum detects the changes as snapshot and developer can see all the changed version of metadata and can commit to a feature branch easily with button click. It can easily integrate with a ticketing tool like JIRA to associate any component for tracking. Its has an automatic pmd code analyser which can scan the code while developer is committing in to feature branch using UI version of flosum.

Review of any code and components are very easy in flosum, pull request can be created for any feature branch and assigned to a reviewer. The best thing is reviewer can easily see if any new component is added/modified in feature branch. If any modification happened then it can show the differences. Reviewer can give comments for the developer for the changed component if needed and can finally approve or reject the change with button click.

Merge code to a release branch - Once the code is reviewed in feature branch and ready to merge with release branch developer/release manager can easily merge the code from feature to release branch using button. If there is any conflict present then developer/release manager can easily resolve the conflict with button click this avoids any code overwrite by developers in release branch, which is the biggest challenge with big distributed teams which I think flosum solves this problem very efficiently.

Deployment to any Org - Salesforce Org deployment from release branch can be initiated with a button click. If the requirement is to do the deployment in multiple sandboxes then that be configured as well with button click. Pipelines can be easily created for org deployment. Once the deployment will be completed history can be checked. If someone would like to do validation first that option is also available.

Finally master branch merge - After the complete deployment cycle code can be merged to master or repository or can be pushed in to other sandboxes like training Org very easily from UI steps

I simply love this tool and its powerful merge capability. All above release process/steps can happen from a very user friendly UI which is very convenient for developers, release managers. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Merge code to a release branch, Once the code is reviewed in feature branch and ready to merge with realese branch developer/release manager can easily merge the code from feature to release branch using button. If there is any conflict present then developer/release manager can easily resolve the conflict with button click this avoids any code over write by developers in release branch, which is the biggest challenge with big distributed teams, flosum solves this problem very efficiently Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

1. Branch Management strategy comparing to GIT is better in Flosum. For exam destructive changes, code scan, sync sandboxes with target org etc.

2. Flosum’sVersion Control provides a robust set of quality control features which factor in the concepts of static code analysis, code coverage and user story while GIT is not customizable.

3. Merging and approval process are at one flow and you can easily revert the changes.

4. Most of the companies has opted now for Lightning view. Lightning Interface gives a good and attractive view in Flosum.

5. Secure tool as per Salesforce platform security policies.

6. Enhance the deployment experience by reducing the time.

7. Click not code approach makes it easier to use by Admins as well as developers. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.<
