Summer is in full swing, and that means that, like every year, Salesforce has prepared for us an extensive package of changes, known as the Summer Release. Read this article for a subjective selection of the most important updates.

If you haven’t yet heard what Salesforce releases are, let me explain: three times a year, Salesforce introduces updated versions of its applications, enriched with new functionalities and improvements. The changes are effective the same day (or within two days) for all users worldwide and do not affect the customized processes existing at the customers’ organizations.

What changes are available in the new Salesforce update? We have prepared a subjective selection of news and fixes below.
