Tip 1 – My Dreamforce session

I am happy to announce that I am presenting a session at Dreamforce again this year, take a look here to bookmark it before the rush!? This year I will be talking about some of the Free Appexchange Apps that I have been playing with, alongside fellow MVPs, and Amanda Nelson from Appexchange. What are the free apps you have found most useful?

Tip 2 – Winter ’17 Release Notes

I am glad many of your enjoyed my flashback to 1999 last week… and one main difference between Salesforce in 1999 and now in 2016, is that the release notes are now a whopping 425 pages! Take a look here.

There is a big focus on the Lightning UI, but here are my Top 10:

  • Identify and Merge Duplicate Leads in Lightning Experience
  • Editing Inline(Beta) in Lightning Experience
  • Kanban: Now available for Leads, Contracts, and Campaigns
  • Modify Records from the Kanban View
  • Chart Improvements: Table, Gauge, Bar, Scatter, Line, and Combo Charts
  • Send Text Messages from Salesforce1 (but only stored on the device not Salesforce)
  • Get Field-Level Help in Lightning Experience
  • News on the Contact page
  • Set Up Customizable Campaign Influence
  • Sync Appointments from Google Calendar to Salesforce (Beta)
