Learn about other changes in the Salesforce1 app.

Device and Browser Support

More iOS and Apple Device Support
Salesforce1 is supported on iOS 8, and on iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus devices.
More Android OS Support
Salesforce1 is supported on Android 5.0.
Salesforce1 Mobile Browser App on Windows 8.1 Phones (Generally Available)
The Salesforce1 mobile browser app is now generally available for use in the Microsoft® Internet Explorer® 11 browser on Nokia™ Lumia™ 1020 and HTC™ 8X phones running Windows® 8.1. Salesforce1 isn’t supported on mobile phones with Windows 8.0 or on Windows tablets.
Salesforce1 Mobile Browser App on Android Tablets
The Salesforce1 mobile browser app is supported on Google® Nexus 7™ and Nexus 10™ tablets running Android™ 4.2 or later, as well as Android phones.

Other Navigation Enhancements

See More List Views on Record Search Pages

Users of the Salesforce1 downloadable app for iOS devices, versions 7.0 and later, can see up to 200 list views for an object, not just the ones they’ve accessed recently. Tap More List Views on the object’s record search page. This enhancement makes it possible to access more list views without having to first open a specific list view.

Other Salesforce Communities Enhancements

Show Nicknames for Community Members
If an administrator or community manager has enabled nickname display for the members in a community, users’ first and last names are hidden in the Salesforce1 mobile browser app, as well as the full site. See “Show Nicknames Instead of Full Names in the Community” in the Salesforce Help for more information.

Other Chatter Enhancements

Get Faster Access to Tagged Topics
In the Salesforce1 mobile browser app, tapping a topic tagged to a feed item takes users directly to the topic detail page. (Previously, the full list of tagged topics was displayed, requiring an extra tap to access the detail page.)
Get Answers with Chatter Questions (Generally Available)
The Chatter Questions feed in the Salesforce1 mobile browser app is now generally available. The interface for asking questions and getting answers is unchanged from the Beta release in Summer ’14.
See User Profiles if Chatter Is Disabled
If Chatter is turned off, users are still able to access the People item from the Salesforce1 navigation menu.
Edit Profile Pictures in All Versions of the Salesforce1 App
In the Salesforce1 mobile browser app and the Salesforce1 downloadable app for Android devices, users can now upload photos to use as their profile pictures. Administrators can edit users’ profile pictures if they have the proper permissions. A profile picture is editable if a pencil icon displays in the lower-right corner of the image. This feature has been available in the Salesforce1 downloadable app for iOS devices as of version 5.1.
See the “Following” Related List on User Profiles
The Following related list is now available in the Salesforce1 mobile browser app and the Salesforce1 downloadable app for Android devices. Users can see who others are following from the related information page on a user’s profile. This feature has been available in the Salesforce1 downloadable app for iOS devices as of version 5.0.
Collaborate More Privately with Unlisted Chatter Groups

Salesforce1 mobile browser app users can create and access unlisted groups. Unlisted groups offer more privacy than private groups. Only members and users with the “Manage Unlisted Groups” permission can access unlisted groups in list views, feeds, and search results in the mobile browser app.

Use Additional Filters to Find the Right Salesforce Files Sync
The Salesforce1 mobile browser app now includes two additional filters for Files list views: Shared with Me and Following. Previously, mobile browser app users had to switch to the full site to use these filters. (The downloadable apps have included the Shared with Me filter as of version 5.0, but don’t offer the Following filter.)

Other Relationship and Data Management Enhancements

Find Information More Easily When Viewing Records
The record view in all versions of Salesforce1 has been updated to display tabs for the feed, details, and related information pages, instead of the dots that were previously used to represent these pages. Users can access record view pages by tapping a tab, or by swiping right or left on the page. The performance of the swiping experience has been improved.
Clone Contact Records
For all versions of Salesforce1, the Clone action is now available on contacts. This action isn’t available for other objects like accounts, however.
Do More with the Twitter Component
All versions of Salesforce1 include new options for using Twitter on contact records. Users can see more details about people in common, more easily read handle lists with new pagination, and log out of Twitter.
See Profile Pictures for Opportunity Team Members
In all versions of Salesforce1, users can now see profile pictures for members of an opportunity team. Tap a picture to see the team member’s profile page or to call or email the person.
Add New Skills and Endorse Other Users’ Skills
Users can add new skills and endorse other users’ skills in the Salesforce1 mobile browser app and the Salesforce1 downloadable app for Android devices. To add new skills, open the Skills page from the navigation menu then tap New. Add endorsements when viewing a user’s skill.
Use Reward Funds and Reward Fund Types
Users can now see, edit, and create reward funds and reward fund types directly in all versions of Salesforce1. This item is automatically included in the Recent section of the Salesforce1 navigation menu as part of the Smart Search Items element. Users may need to tap More to see the item.
Tap New on the Reward Fund or Reward Fund Type page to create a new record of that type. Tap Edit on a detail page to edit an existing reward fund or reward fund type. Additionally, users can search for specific reward funds and reward fund types.

Temporary Known Issues

Tapping the View Comment button in a notification email no longer directs users to the intended post in the Salesforce1 downloadable app for iOS.
For a short period of time in Winter ‘15, when users get an email notification about a feed post, tapping the View Comment button in the email doesn’t direct them to the actual post in the Salesforce1 downloadable app for iOS. Instead, users are directed to their feed with the What I Follow filter selected.
This known issue is temporary and only affects users on the Salesforce1 downloadable app for iOS. Users on the Salesforce1 mobile browser app and Salesforce1 downloadable app for Android do not see this issue.
We apologize for this known issue, which will resolve soon in upcoming releases of the Salesforce1 downloadable app for iOS.
