Increase Remote Worker Productivity with Einstein Search


Most Salesforce users use Salesforce Search. But sometimes, it can be difficult for users to find exactly what they are looking for. That is why we have combined the power of AI with Salesforce Search to bring you: Einstein Search! And the best part is that most* Admins can turn it on on their own to boost their users’ current experience with more powerful, intelligent search.

Turn on Einstein Search for every Salesforce user today!

Powered by intelligence, the new Einstein Search experience makes it much easier to find what you’re looking for and do things more efficiently in Salesforce. And, as you may suspect, it’s fully powered by AI.

Here are three ways Einstein Search improves Salesforce users’ search results:

  • Personalized to you:If you’re searching for Robert Burns, out of 100 Robert Burns in the system, Einstein Search will identify the most relevant Robert Burns *for you* and show it as the top result.
  • Natural language-based: Instead of manually sorting and filtering to get the list you need, now you can simply type “my open opportunities this month” and Einstein Search will instantly display them.
  • Immediately actionable: We all want fewer clicks. Now when you search for Robert Burns, you will see actions you can take—such as creating a case or logging a note—right within the search box.
