Events and tasks are the building blocks of sales productivity.
We’ve made enhancements that boost your sales teams’
edge over the competition, along with updates to improve performance
Add Custom Lookup Fields on Activities (Beta)
Tired of having to choose which type of record is most important to activities? Now your users can track events, meetings, and tasks related to partners, suppliers, trainers—whatever additional record types make sense in your organization. A field type for lookup relationships, now available for use with activities, lets you add custom lookup fields from activities to other records. To enable this feature in your organization, contact salesforce.com Customer Support.
Let Your Users Control Task Notifications Globally
Users can now control notification emails for all of their task assignments. This new setting replaces the checkbox on the Create Task page that triggers an email to the assignee of the task. The user setting is exposed by default. You can hide the setting from users. Either option has specific effects on users of Salesforce1 and the full Salesforce site, on Communities users, on partner portal users, on users who are assigned tasks via workflow task rules, and on users who are assigned tasks that are generated by the triggerUserEmail field.
