Frequently Asked Questions

Does the Component Lightning Component work in a Community when it is integrated with Conga Sign?

Yes - Instances where the Composer Lightning Component leverages Conga Sign will run successfully in a Salesforce Community.

As an admin, why can I see the Composer Lightning Component in a Community but Community user cannot? 

It is likely that the Community users do not have the required Composer-related permissions to view the Composer Lightning Component. Ensure that the Community users have necessary access to Conga object and Apex classes. Additionally, check to see that org-wide sharing settings are setup appropriately. 

How does licensing work with Community users launching the Composer Lightning Component in a Community? 
Each Community user must have an assigned Conga Composer license. For more information on assigning Conga Composer licenses, see Assign User Licenses.
