Other Salesforce1 Setup and Rollout Enhancements
- Salesforce Adoption Manager Available in More Regions
- Salesforce Adoption Manager is now available for organizations based in the U.K. and Australia, as well as those in the United States.
- Obsolete Publisher Icon Field Removed from Salesforce1 Branding Pages
- The Publisher Icon field has been removed from the Salesforce1 Branding pages, which are accessible in Setup by clicking . The publisher icon was removed from the Salesforce1 mobile browser app in Winter ’15 and from the downloadable apps starting with version 7.0. Because earlier versions of the downloadable apps are no longer supported, the Publisher Icon field is now obsolete.
Other Device and Browser Support Enhancements
Other Supported Data Enhancements
- Access State and Country Picklists
- State and country picklists are now available in all versions of Salesforce1. State and country picklists allow users to select states and countries from predefined, standardized lists, instead of directly typing state and country data into text fields. You must enable state and country picklists for your organization first. For more information, see Enable and Disable State and Country Picklists.
- Access External Data with Lightning Connect
- With Lightning Connect, users of the Salesforce1 downloadable app for iOS and the
Salesforce1 mobile browser app can view and search data that's stored outside your
organization. Lightning Connect accesses the external data in real time via Web service
callouts and represents the data in Salesforce external objects. (Lightning Connect is
available in Developer Edition and for an extra cost, in Enterprise, Performance, and
Previously, you could access only Open Data Protocol–exposed data on external systems. Now you can access more types of external systems, so all your users—including Salesforce1 users—get a more complete view of your business. For more information, see Lightning Connect.
Other Search Enhancements
- Use Global Search to Find Information in Feed Posts
- Salesforce1 mobile browser app users can now use global search in the header () to find posts in the “All Company” Chatter feed. Swipe to the end of the search scope bar and tap Feeds.
- Searching the feed with global search is a little different than searching other objects. The search page doesn’t show a list of recently viewed posts, the app doesn’t start looking for matching posts while a user is typing keywords in the search box, and the action bar doesn’t display at the bottom of the search results page.
Other Sales Productivity Enhancements
- Key Fields Automatically Update When Changing an Opportunity's Stage
- Updating the sales stage, either in the Opportunity record or the Sales Path, automatically updates the Forecast Category and Probability %. Previously, users needed to manually refresh the page for these fields to update. This enhancement is available in all Salesforce1 apps. (Opportunities are available in Group, Professional, Enterprise, Performance, Unlimited, and Developer Editions.)
Other Work.com Enhancements
- Track Goals and Metrics with Enhanced Goals
- Help your sales teams precisely track goals and metrics related to their work with Enhanced Goals. Salesforce1 users can review, edit, and create goals and metrics on the go. See Upgrade to Enhanced Goals (Generally Available) for details and help setting up Enhanced Goals. (Enhanced Goals is available in Professional, Enterprise, Performance, Unlimited, and Developer Editions.)
Other Customer Service Tools Enhancements
- See File Fields on Articles
- Agents and customers can now see file field content when viewing articles in the Salesforce1 for Android and Salesforce1 mobile browser apps. This is especially useful when an article references something in an attached file that isn’t well understood without accessing the file. (Salesforce Knowledge is available in Performance and Developer Editions, and for an additional cost in Enterprise and Unlimited Editions.)
Other Chatter Enhancements
- Dismiss Recommendations in Feeds
- Salesforce1 mobile browser app users can now dismiss recommendations so they no longer appear in feeds, including community feeds. This applies to all recommendation types, including custom recommendations and the Salesforce Today recommendation.
- Add Multiple Topics to a Post
- While adding topics to posts, Salesforce1 mobile browser app users can quickly separate multiple topic names with commas or the Tab key. (Topics are available in Group, Professional, Enterprise, Performance, Unlimited, Contact Manager, and Developer Editions.)
- Manage Group Members from Related Lists
- Using Salesforce1, group owners and managers can do more to manage group members directly from Members related lists. Swipe left on a name to remove the member or change their role from member to manager. (Groups are available in Professional, Enterprise, Performance, Unlimited, and Developer Editions.)
- Focus on Useful Information in Group List Views
- To help mobile users focus on the most relevant information, Salesforce1 no longer clutters up group list views with the date and time of the last activity on the feed. And the archived status field is no longer displayed—previously this information was included in group list views when accessed on a tablet. (Groups are available in Professional, Enterprise, Performance, Unlimited, and Developer Editions.)
Other Salesforce Communities Enhancements
Salesforce Communities are available in Enterprise, Performance, Unlimited, and Developer Editions.
- Approve or Reject Approval Requests from Approval Related Lists On Records in Communities
- You can now assign role-based external users as approvers on records. In all of the
Salesforce1 apps, these users can see and take action on records through the My
Approvals and Approval History related lists. Role-based external users with Customer
Community, Customer Community Plus, and Partner Community licenses, and Portal users who
are a member of a Salesforce community, can use Salesforce1. Users with high-volume
licenses, such as High Volume Customer Portal and Authenticated Website, can’t approve
External users can’t submit requests for approval in Salesforce1.
- Add Records to Chatter Groups in Communities
- Increase collaboration on the go by allowing communities members to add records to groups. This option is available in all versions of Salesforce1. For more information, see Communities Members Can Now Add Records in Groups.
- Create Custom Recommendations in Community Feeds from a Different Location in Community Management
- Drive engagement with your mobile community users by adding custom recommendations to community feeds. Custom recommendations are supported in the Salesforce1 mobile browser app for any community using the Salesforce Tabs + Visualforce template. You now create custom recommendations for communities from a different location in Community Management, by clicking .
- To clarify some misinformation in the Salesforce Spring ’15 Release Notes, communities using the Napili template do not support custom recommendations in the Salesforce1 mobile browser app. We don’t recommend using Salesforce1 to access communities that use Napili or any other Community Builder template because these communities contain rich styling that doesn’t display in the mobile app. See “Access to Communities Using Salesforce1” in the Salesforce Help for more information.
Other Offline Enhancements
- See Improved Visual Feedback During Page Loading
- All Salesforce1 users now experience a smoother transition while pages are loading. We’ve added placeholder images and an activity bar to improve transitions between pages and increase the overall responsiveness of the app.
- Offline Settings Link on the Salesforce1 Setup Page Renamed
- In Setup in the full site, on the Salesforce1 Setup page, the Offline Sync link has been renamed Offline Cache to match terminology used on the Salesforce1 Offline Settings page.
Other Security Enhancements
- Connected App IP Relaxation and Continuous IP Enforcement
- There’s a new security setting that continuously restricts Salesforce access—including login requests from connected apps like the Salesforce1 downloadable apps—to only the IP addresses that are defined in Login IP Ranges. If you previously relaxed IP restrictions for any of the downloadable apps then decide to turn on the Enforce login IP ranges on every request option, user access to the mobile apps may change. See Continuously Enforce IP Addresses in Login IP Ranges for more information about this new setting. And see Connected App IP Relaxation and Continuous IP Enforcement to learn how connected app IP relaxation settings interact with continuous IP enforcement.
- For other connected app enhancements, see Connected App Improvements for Finer Control and Easier Administration.
- Comply with Data Protection Requirements Using Platform Encryption (Generally Available)
- Data that’s encrypted with Platform Encryption is supported in all versions of Salesforce1. See Comply with Data Protection Requirements Using Platform Encryption (Generally Available) for more information.
- When Salesforce1 users interact
with encrypted data, keep in mind:
- Search can’t find data in encrypted fields.
- Related lists on Accounts and Contacts are empty when the Name field is encrypted.
- File encryption indicators don’t display in the app.
- Records cloned by users who don’t have the “View Encrypted Data” permission include masked data for encrypted fields.
Other Miscellaneous Enhancements
- Experience Faster App Loading
- We’ve improved performance of the Salesforce1 downloadable app for iOS, version 7.3 by
changing how the app looks and behaves when it’s loading.
- When logging in to Salesforce1 for iOS the first time, the user now sees a gray splash screen with a blue header until custom or default branding resources, such as logo and background color, finish downloading. It’s possible this login session may complete before there’s time to display any branding. When the app loads on subsequent logins, the user sees a branded splash screen—which includes any custom branding applied to the app by your organization. See “Custom Branding for the Salesforce1 Mobile App” in the Salesforce Help..
- Whenever the user backgrounds or foregrounds the app, your organization’s custom-branded splash screen displays, as before. But for organizations using the default Salesforce1 branding, the app simply blurs the screen during backgrounding and foregrounding.
