Describe how to manage multiple concurrent sessions to Salesforce.com
You may find the need to log in to more than one Salesforce environment at time on a single computer (for example, your production org at work to do your job and a developer edition org to perform testing). Not to worry, there are a few solutions for this:
- In Lightning Experience, you can add additional logins and then switch between users.
- Navigating to the login page will allow you to switch between multiple active sessions.
- You can use create Chrome profiles and establish a unique session for each profile. I highly recommend this approach (even if you are using Lightning Experience), as each Chrome profile can have a separate icon and function (which removes the “wait, what org this again” syndrome).
- You can install many browsers (Chrome, Firefox, IE, Safari, etc.) and use each browser to maintain a separate session.
- Session management (#1 and #2 above) is managed separately for production and sandbox environments (you cannot add a sandbox session to a production session).
- You can only maintain one session per pod per browser (in this example, firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com are both hosted on NA50, so I would need separate browsers if I wanted to connect to both at the same time).
