Easy Wins to Enhance Page Layouts - Introducing Enhanced Lightning Grids - Monday 10 May 2021

Salesforce is often categorised as an “out of the box product”, and by that we mean that from Day 1 of your deployment, there are standard features/functionalities already up and running that allows you to start using it straight away. The issue with this, however, is that sometimes we just assume this is how Salesforce should look like/be used like; and typically, we start adjusting our preferences to be better aligned with the “out the box” functionality. A prime example of this is the general user interface (UI). People assume that the fields/page layouts/related lists etc. should stay the same. It isn’t until someone shows an alternative view, do we appreciate how much far we can go with our customisation. MORE INFO

myTrailhead Storage Sync - Wednesday 24 March 2021

We’ve just seen another update in myTrailhead, which we think many of you will like. If you have been working with Trailmaker (where we create myTrailhead content) for some time, you will have been aware that content is stored in your cache. Therefore, should you clear your cache or use an incognito window, you will lose the content in your workspace. Now we have myTrailhead Storage Sync. MORE INFO

Flow Updates in Spring ‘21 - Wednesday 17 March 2021

Salesforce have been putting massive effort into flows over the last few releases and Spring ‘21 is no different. Firstly, the obligatory rebrand for anything they put significant effort into. Lightning Flow is now called Salesforce Flow. A minor difference but worth noting when searching for help. It seems like the focus here has been to close some of the gaps between flow builder, process builder (which is the same underlying technology) and workflow rules. I will run through some of my favourite changes. MORE INFO
