Tip #1 – New Notes Functionality
The final releases of Winter ’16 will be done this weekend, and one of the many great new features is the Notes functionality. The ‘new’ Notes is actually moving from beta, and is an upgrade of the long-standing Notes & Attachments functionality. So you can now create standalone notes, relate notes to multiple records, report on notes, etc.
Take a look at the set up notes here. And in particular click on the ‘Walk Through It’ link, which will guide you through the steps within Salesforce whilst you are in your Org. I think we will see increasingly more of these links, pretty cool!
Tip #2 – Dreamforce To You
If you missed Dreamforce, or want to relive some of the highlights, these events may be for you. The reality is Stevie Wonder and the Foo Fighters probably won’t be there! But you can see some of the key demos from Dreamforce, and here more about the Lightning Experience UI, plus you can have lunch with likeminded people in your area. Here are some key dates:
Oct 20 – Zurich
Oct 29 – Amsterdam
Nov 3 – London
Nov 4 – Oslo
Nov 12 – Birmingham
Nov 17 – Manchester (Come and say hi to me here!)
