By using the app launcher, you can quickly switch between these sites. Your profile will aggregate data from across these sites into one page so you can show off your Salesforce Trailhead skills, community posts, and hard work to your coworkers or future employers.

In-App Guidance Improvements

With improvements to learning prompts inside Salesforce apps, you can guide your users with even more support. These new improvements include the addition of videos to docked prompts inside the Lightning Experience. If you have a video that explains a complex process or better delivers a message to your users, you can now add videos directly to prompt. Also, fine tune your prompt’s message for specific users, to what objects and data they have access to or what they can do. Previously you could only set permissions to display prompts to specific users, now this is extended to standard and custom profiles too. 

Case Hover & Edit

Save time by previewing, editing, and deleting cases directly from the list view with a compact preview that appears when they hover on the case. Just hover over the Subject line to see a preview of the case. You can even customize which fields appear in the hover view by changing the compact layout in Service settings.
