What's an environment?
A Salto environment (env for short) is a set of service connections (e.g. Salesforce, NetSuite). Each service connection links to a specific account or instance of that service (e.g. a specific sandbox account). Salto operations, like fetch or deploy, always run in the context of an env.

- Go to your org settings by clicking the icon at the bottom-left corner of the Salto app, where you should land on the Environments tab, with the main button saying Create a new environment - click the button
- Name your env, e.g. Dev if you're about to connect your personal sandbox, and click Next
- Next click Add Service and a dialog will open to help you connect your first service:
- Choose the service to connect, e.g. Salesforce
- Choose the credentials protocol. Per-member Login is recommended

- You should be back on the Add Services screen, with one service already added
