There is no denying that spring is coming. Admittedly, it’s not the one we’ve all been imagining – free of pandemics and work-life restrictions. But it’s all easier to bear when the first sunny days arrive. And along with them came the Salesforce Spring ’21 Release!

If you have not heard yet 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.

General changes
