Managed Package for Popup Alert

Our company currently has Riptide Popup Alerts in our Salesforce Classic org. We are in the process of re-platforming and are being advised that this functionality is not available in Lightning. Is this true, and if it is, is there a solution in place at all for a Lightning org without manually coding the pop-ups?

The simplest equivalent in Lightning is a toast in "sticky" mode ( remains visible until you press the close buttons ) associated with a record data to access the values of the fields of your object (record page). Coding needed.

You need a small component that is present on the page (record) that will activate the toast during the init phase.

You should post a sample of condition and message for one of your Riptide Popup Alert in your Salesforce Classic org.

Here is a great blog post (https://ericsplayground.wordpress.com/2019/12/15/lets-get-toasty/) by a good friend of mine and a Salesforce MVP that also covers this in detail, including how to get the component, and some of the configuration.  It is a great way to get an alert like this.
