It’s that time of year again as Salesforce is close to releasing features from their exciting Summer ’21 Release. We’ve reviewed the release notes and highlighted eight of our favorite, and most valuable, new features. It’s important to note that most of these newly released features are only available in Salesforce Lightning. Read our previous blog post on why your company should be using Salesforce Lightning.

Currently, the Summer ’21 release notes are in the pre-release program. On May 7th and 8th, Salesforce sandbox environments will be upgraded so that companies can get a feel and look at the new release.

Pipeline Inspection

Pipeline Inspection provides sales representatives with a single view of their pipeline’s key opportunities and metrics. It can display changes in the amount, stage of deals, and forecast categories. Utilizing these insights, sales reps can focus on the most important deals, and managers can find opportunities or representatives that need more help.
