How and When Do Features Become Available?

Some features in Winter ’19 affect all users immediately after the release goes live. Consider communicating these changes to your users beforehand so that they’re prepared. Other features require direct action by an administrator before users can benefit from the new functionality.

Supported Browsers

We made it easier to find what you need in our supported browsers documentation. Supported browsers for Salesforce vary depending on whether you use Salesforce Classic or Lightning Experience. As of April 5, 2019, we no longer support Internet Explorer 9 and 10. You can continue to access these browsers, however, Salesforce will not provide support for issues that you encounter using them.

Salesforce Overall

We introduce new ways to ease and encourage users to transition to Lightning Experience. Also, get insight into why users are switching back to Salesforce Classic with a new feedback form. Personalize your view in Lightning Experience with display density controls. Fast track your communication with predefined quick text messages in emails, tasks, events, and chats. Search within list views, and share your favorite list view with your team. Check out the ways that we bolstered surveys, search filters, and Lightning console apps. And that’s only half of it.

And your users are safer with alerts that warn them before they are redirected from Salesforce.

Salesforce IoT

Salesforce IoT has innovations to help you create unique and memorable customer experiences. You can add your Salesforce IoT data on any page in Salesforce with our new IoT Insights Lightning component. New troubleshooting features let you send event messages inside the app and view the messages as they are received. We’re also making contexts easier to use and improving trackers.

Development

Whether you’re using Lightning components, Visualforce, Apex, or our APIs with your favorite programming language, these enhancements to the Salesforce Platform help you develop amazing applications, integrations, and packages for resale to other organizations.
