As Salesforce Admins, we are problem solvers and innovators. One area that we’re always solving for is user adoption. Admins build #AwesomeAdmin solutions, but we also build with an adoption mindset. Low-code features help us bring adoption to the forefront in everything we build.

You can use these low-code tools to maximize user adoption within your org, help your users provide awesome customer experiences with productivity tools, quickly monitor and manage performance with prebuilt dashboards, and continue your learning from anywhere with Trailhead GO.
