Supported browsers, mobile devices, and integrations
This section provides information about the browsers, mobile devices, and integrations that BMC Helix Remedyforce supports:
BMC Helix Remedyforce is supported on the Enterprise Edition, Unlimited Edition, and Performance Edition versions of the Salesforce platform. For more information about the editions offered by Salesforce, see the Salesforce Help.
|Apple Safari on Macintosh OS|
Post upgrading to Chrome version 80, enabling the SameSite settings and upgrading to Remedyforce Winter 20 there will be a one-time loss of all the user preferences settings stored in cookies.
Note: Salesforce Lightning Experience and Salesforce Classic will no longer support the non-Chromium version of Microsoft Edge from December 31, 2020. We recommend you to use Microsoft Edge Chromium or other supported browsers.
|Microsoft Internet Explorer|
Remedyforce will be supported on Microsoft Internet Explorer 11 for Salesforce Classic. However, Remedyforce is not supported on Microsoft Internet Explorer 8, 9, and 10 versions.
Please be aware that, if any browser specific issues are found with regards to Microsoft Internet Explorer 11, we will attempt to fix, however, it is becoming more and more challenging to resolve IE 11 browser specific issues as technology continues to advance and some features may not work as expected due to these reasons.
In case you have opted for Extended use of Microsoft Internet Explorer 11 with Lightning Experience under Setup > Security > Session Settings, it is still not recommended to run on Explorer 11 because of security compromises and performance issues.
It is recommended to switch to other fully supported browsers listed above.
BMC products will no longer support Microsoft Internet Explorer 11 from February 2021. We recommend you to use Microsoft Edge Chromium or other supported browsers.
BMC Helix Remedyforce is not supported on mobile browsers. If you want to use Remedyforce on mobile, BMC recommends that you use Salesforce1 Mobile App.
