Automatically Get Geocodes for Addresses (Generally Available)
Help your sales and marketing teams find nearby prospects, assign territories and campaigns, and more! All this is a cinch with geocodes. In just a few clicks, you can set up and activate the geocode clean rules for your org. Then, geocodes are added for addresses on existing and new accounts, contacts, and leads. You can set up geocode clean rules in Salesforce Classic only.
Salesforce Spell Checker is Replaced by Browser-Based Spell Check
As part of our effort to modernize the Salesforce experience and follow best practices for spell checking, we’re removing Spell Checker and recommending using your browser’s spell check functionality instead. The change affects only Salesforce Classic, because Spell Checker was available only in Salesforce Classic. Browser-based spell check is available in Lightning Experience, Salesforce Classic, and the Salesforce1 mobile browser app.
Change a Record’s Owner More Easily in Lightning Experience
Your users can now change a record’s owner from more places in Lightning Experience. The change owner action is available in the record’s highlights panel, the actions bar, and as an icon in the Owner field on all records where the user has permission to change the owner.
Shortcuts for Currency and Number Fields in Lightning Experience
When you enter a currency amount or any other type of number, you can use the shortcuts k, m, b, t to indicate thousands, millions, billions, or trillions. This feature is available in Lightning Experience, Salesforce Classic, and all versions of the Salesforce1 mobile app. The shortcut for trillions is not available in Salesforce Classic.
Welcome Your Users to Lightning Experience
When users find themselves in Lightning Experience, they’re met with a message to welcome them to the new interface. And if users aren’t ready to explore Lightning Experience yet? No problem—we provide step-by-step, pop-up instructions that describe how to switch back to Salesforce Classic.
Get More Insight Into Whether You’re Ready for Lightning Experience
Run the Lightning Experience Readiness Check to evaluate some of the Sales Cloud features and customizations you’re using in Salesforce Classic. That way, you can learn which are ready for Lightning Experience and which need your attention before you migrate your users.
Edition Name in Lightning Experience
Your Salesforce organization edition can now be found on the company information page. In Salesforce Classic the edition is also still shown in the browser tab and the Company Profile page.
Power Through Your Work with Efficient In-App Messaging
Popup messaging just got more efficient, helping users process and act on updates with fewer clicks. When multiple messages are generated, they stack together so users can address them consecutively. And now messages can include multiple actions, so users interact with fewer messages overall. Salesforce provides new API attributes to support enhanced messaging in Lightning Experience and the Salesforce1 mobile browser app.
More Helpful Presentation of Internal Error Messages
Hopefully your users never experience an internal error message. But for those rare occasions, we’ve updated the appearance and content of these messages so non-technical users are better able to understand the situation. And optionally, users now can send us information about what they were doing before the error occurred, right from the message. Which helps us make these occurrences even more scarce, so thank you! This feature is available in Lightning Experience and the Salesforce1 mobile browser app.
