Using on Classic with SharinPix Canvas App

This article demonstrates how to add the SharinPix Canvas app onto an object's page-layout by:

  1. Firstly, setting up SharinPix on your Org
  2. Secondly, adding the Canvas app onto the page-layout


Canvas apps have some limitations. For example, they only allow 5,000 calls per day per user within 24-hour.

Therefore the usage of the SharinPix Canvas App is not recommended for implementations. In such cases, we recommend the usage of the SharinPix Visualforce Component instead. The SharinPix Canvas App, however, can still be used for testing purposes.

For more information about Canvas app limitations, please refer to the following link:
