Salesforce Spring ’10 Release

01/20/2010

Spring 10 BugVery soon the logo at the top left corner of your Salesforce account will change from a snowman into a little red beetle. This means that Salesforce Spring ’10 was released!

I attended a preview webinar of the Salesforce Spring ’10’s new features (check out the Upcoming Events page on my website for to learn about future webinars) and I would like to share just a very limited sampling of the many exciting new updates:

1.  New User Interface

It is about time that Salesforce made some changes in this department. The new UI is more conducive for the social networking era, cleaner, and much simpler.

So… what do you think? The new UI will be available for everyone on February 5th. To activate it go to: Setup | Customize | User Interface.

2. E-mail

There are several interesting enhancements in this field, one of which is the possibility to preview emails (I assume that you already know how to use email templates but if not, please do not hesitate to contact me and I will gladly show you how) before sending them. Here’s how you do it: Setup | Email | My Templates | Send Test and Verify Merge Fields

3. Rich Text

This is one of the most exciting new features 🙂  We will be able change the color of the text, bold, and even add pictures in rich text area fields. For example, they put a picture of an iPhone and bolded the price using this new feature. The only problem with Rich Text is that now users can show their creativity –but sometimes their creativity is not such an aesthetically pleasing thing.

4. Sophisticated Data Modeling
