The new Summer’19 release has hit your Salesforce environment. To help consulting partners like LavaBox get across all the new features, Salesforce’s New Zealand Solution Architects ran a session to take us through the highlights. Now we’re ready to share these with you.
Condensed Record View Option
Are you a bit hesitant to transition to Lightning because you are unsure of how your users will adapt to the new look and feel? Don't worry, Salesforce has created a condensed view that’s more reminiscent of Classic, which allows you to view more records on the page.
Related List Enhancements
Salesforce now allows you to get more out of your related lists by allowing you to have up to 10 columns. You can sort, resize, take mass action or even wrap text from a related list.
With In-App Guidance you can now help your users get up and running in Lightning by creating custom in-app prompts. These teach users new skills and best practices while providing stats on how users have interacted with your prompts.
Add Images To An Email
Add Opportunity Contact Roles More Efficiently
Tired of searching for contacts to create Opportunity contact roles? You can now easily add roles from within the Opportunity.
Merge Case Functionality
WOW! This is a really handy feature. You can now easily merge up to 3 cases into 1. You can also select which information you want to merge as well as which case you want to keep as the master. No more duplicate cases!
Define Hyperlink Colors
Expand on your company’s theming and branding by defining a hyperlink colour.
Access full desktop version of Lightning Experience from Safari on Ipad Devices
Send Survey Invites for Free
This was previously a paid feature. You can now send and receive up to 300 surveys and responses for free.

It's easy for a CRM to become an expensive cloud-rolodex. CRM systems only deliver on their transformational potential when everyone from CEO to the sales floor are actually using the system in the right way. Below are the keys to getting everyone on the CRM bus from the outset:
You need a document signed. Maybe it's a contract. A disclosure statement. It could be anything. You attach it to an email and send it to your client. Your client prints it out and completes it. They sign it, scan it, attach it to an email and send it back. You print it and give it to your admin team. They double enter the data back into your system and file it. What a horrendous waste of time.
