Salesforce Summer 20 Release Notes

Split List View

Work Through Lists with Ease Using Split View for Standard Navigation.

Do you often find yourself working through multiple records in a list? With split view, you can see a list view and a record side by side. To move on to a new record, select it from the split view, and the new record opens with the list still in view. No more navigating back and forth between your list and your records. Split view is great for going through records in sequence or for quickly skimming through a set of records. The split view panel is collapsible for extra flexibility.

How: To access split view, select Split View from the Display As dropdown menu. If you select split view for an object, that object automatically loads in split view until you change its Display As view.

Dynamic Forms

Break Up Your Record Details with Dynamic Forms (Non-GA Preview)

Dynamic Forms is the next step in the evolution of Lightning record pages. It adds the ability to configure record detail fields and sections inside the Lightning App Builder.

With Dynamic Forms, you can migrate the fields and sections from your page layout as individual components into the Lightning App Builder. Then, you can configure them just like the rest of the components on the page, and give users only the fields and sections that they need.

View Records Using Full View (Generally Available)

Now you have two record page view default options. Choose between the current view—now called Grouped view—and the new Full view. Full view displays all details and related lists on the same page(Similar to classic). If you’re transitioning to Lightning Experience, this view is similar to Salesforce Classic. This feature, which is generally available, includes the same functionality as the beta release and is available to qualifying Salesforce orgs.

Set Up Alerts for Big Deals in Lightning Experience
