DotAlign Cloud browser extension

Updated 2 months ago by Jaspreet Bakshi

The DotAlign Cloud browser extension brings DotAlign functionality to Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge. The browser extension lights up on selected websites (linkedin.com, salesforce.com and relpro.com), to supplement the information you have on those sites with information that DotAlign Cloud extracts from the mailboxes comprising your network.

This is how it looks on linkedin.com. The sidebar on the right is DotAlign Cloud.



It also has a "mini" mode so it does not interfere with your experience on the host website.



And a fully collapsed view if you need it.
