It’s important to keep track of important events, agendas and make actionable plans. The new event list views option in Quick Actions saves you from relentlessly digging through your calendar. It provides at a quick glance, all your upcoming events and helps you be organised and on top of everything.

7.  Setup and Manage Built-In Sales Quotas with a Few Clicks

You can easily view and manage your sales quotas, without using Data Loader or API separately. After Summer 19 update, Quotas in Collaborative Forecasts are built right into the Setup area so that you can always keep track of your quota data.

8.  View Options in Salesforce

Existing customers can now switch smoothly from Salesforce classic to Lightning page layouts. Enabling the full view option will give your customers the look and feel of the old classic view, while still using features of the new Lightning experience. Salesforce will likely switch to Lightning after October 2019, so it’s good to stay prepared.

9.  Customise Wisely with Enhanced Related Lists

With the new enhanced Related Lists feature, you have more control over your record lists. You can choose to see all your records in one place or customise how many show up in the lists. You can display, resize and sort up to 10 columns and perform several mass actions.
