I have a canvas app embedded using a Visualforce page.
From within this canvas application, I would like to the user to be able to navigate back to the contact in salesforce.
Using the URLs directly do not work (nor does parent.location) because canvas apps are located in an iframe and the domains are different.
I found lots of information about doing this in salesforce1, but my understanding is that that is for mobile applications.
Is there a way I can create a link that will go back to the application using regular salesforce? Something like this: https://na22.salesforce.com/0031500001aVOD to go to the contact identified by "0031500001aVOD"
