  4. Click on 'Add to Chrome' next to the Salesforce extension. A confirmation dialog will appear, detailing the data the extension can access and other permissions.
  5. Click 'Add extension' to confirm the installation. The Salesforce extension will be added to your Chrome browser.

After installation, you might need to configure the extension by signing in with your Salesforce credentials and granting necessary permissions. This step is crucial for syncing your Salesforce data with Gmail.
