My Favourite Salesforce Winter ’19 Features

09/20/2018

Change Your View with Display Density Settings

A feature that took a few of us by surprise, but a pleasant surprise, the ability to change the density of your Salesforce screens for users. This basically means less white space to be able to fit more on the screen. This is obviously a preference depending on your organization and the type of information on your display, so it would be advised to test this one out. This reminisces of the last Winter release where Salesforce again reduced the white space on list views and records. More power to the Admin!

List Views on Steriods

So there are a few enhancements to list views that I thought I would throw them into one section, I mean, everyone loves List Views, right?

Assign a New Owner to Multiple Leads, Cases, or Custom Objects at One Time

A feature that has had to be developed custom for a while is now made standard. The ability to change an owner of certain records with a few clicks is a game changer for users that don’t have this feature created already. Perfect for managers or users that want to grab hold of many leads or cases.

Collaborate with Ease with List View Sharing

A feature that has long been around in classic has now made it’s way over to the 21st century. You can now share list views with precision, and not just to yourself or the whole world. You can now share list views to groups and/or roles.
 

Find the Data You Need in a Jiffy with List View Search

A great addition to List Views everywhere is a search bar. Say no more!

Joined Reports

Ok, let’s get out of List View world and into Joined Report land. Joined reports have fallen behind in Lightning Experience, however, there are two great additions to this seasons release…

Edit Joined Reports with Lightning Report Builder (Beta)

The first addition is the ability to now use the new Lightning Report Builder with Joined Reports. It does take a little getting used to, but if you haven’t tried the new report builder I highly recommend to do so. There are a lot of added features which make building complex reports a breeze.
 

Use Joined Reports as Source Reports for Dashboard Components

Another smaller addition is the ability to use Joined Reports in dashboard components…
 

Quickly See Whether Customers Open Email from Your Company

Another great feature that is becoming increasingly important as a sales user, to determine whether a customer has opened your email or not. This information is now conveniently shown in the activity timeline!
