Choose from Two Record View Options

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. If you’re transitioning to Lightning Experience, this view is similar to Salesforce Classic.

 If you’re already using Lightning Experience, you can change your org’s default record view in Setup. If you turn on Lightning Experience after Summer ’19, you configure these settings in the Lightning Experience Transition Assistant before you enable Lightning Experience, or in Setup after enabling Lightning Experience.

In Setup, enter Record Page Settings in the Quick Find box, and select Record Page Settings.

To maintain performance quality, Full view is not available for all org configurations (for example if an org has a large number of fields or related lists).

Set Org Defaults for How Activities Display on Record Pages

Control how your users view activities on record pages. Set the default view to the newer expandable activity timeline, or choose the activities related lists view that will feel familiar to Salesforce Classic users. Users can switch between options whenever they want.

Related lists show details for each task, event, and email in the Open Activities and Activity History related lists. Users who are familiar with Salesforce Classic might feel more at home working with the related lists activities view.

Steps to follow:-  In Setup, enter Record Page Settings in the Quick Find box, and select Record Page Settings.

Zoom Through Related Lists with Quick Filters

Use quick filters in your related lists to find the data that you’re looking for. Related list quick filters are different from regular list view filters in that they aren’t saved, persist only throughout your current session, and can’t be shared. Open a related list, and select Filter icon to add quick filters.

Give your users the ability to run the full desktop version of Lightning Experience on their iPad device when they’re away from their desktop or laptop.

In Setup, enter Lightning Experience in the Quick Find box, and then select Lightning Experience on iPad Browsers (Beta).

Search Picklist Fields in List Views

You don’t have to manually pick through your list views to find the picklist values you’re looking for. List view search now includes picklists in your query results. Dependent picklists and picklists with translated values aren’t searchable.

See More in Item Menus on the Navigation Bar

We increased the number of recent items shown in item menus from three to five. We also made some styling enhancements, including bold section names and separators, to make it easier to tell the different sections apart.

Path: Celebrate Sales Milestones

Help your teams celebrate their successes. Toss some virtual confetti when reps reach a designated path stage, for example, winning an opportunity. You can choose the frequency, such as always for those hard-won victories or only sometimes for daily occurrences. Celebrations don’t work on the status Converted on leads.

Add Opportunity Contact Roles More Efficiently in Lightning Experience

No more tedious searching for contacts to create opportunity contact roles in Lightning Experience. All your contacts from the account are now prepopulated on the opportunity. Just select your contacts from the list and add their roles. Editing contact roles is also easier. With separate buttons for adding and editing, you can go directly to the editing area to make changes.


To assign or edit a primary contact for an opportunity, or modify contact roles, click Edit Contact Roles. The current primary contact is shown, along with a list of the opportunity contact roles that have already been added.
