7 New Ideas on the Product Roadmap Admins Will Love

By

The IdeaExchange is where you can share ideas with the Trailblazer Community and Salesforce Product Managers. Use your voice to shape Salesforce products by posting and upvoting ideas throughout the year and prioritizing top ideas three times a year. During each 2-week Prioritization cycle — typically in January, May, and September — we give anyone with a Trailblazer.me profile 100 virtual coins to allocate to the ideas you want to see on the product roadmaps. Then, we use the results to determine which new features to build for upcoming releases.

More than 6,000 of you told us which ideas were your favorites on the list in January 2021. High-fives to everyone who participated! Here’s a look at the winning ideas you’ll see delivered in future releases.

1. Platform winner: Persistent filters on related lists

Admins can configure and add filters to related lists in the Lightning App Builder. Provides the ability to add multiple related lists of the same object to your page. Estimated GA Release: Spring ’22.

7. Education winner: Limit number of appointments advisees can book in the future in Advisor Link

Don’t stop believin’ in your ideas

Awesome: Some of your favorite ideas have been declared winners and are on their way to becoming new features through the release planning and development process. Not quite as awesome: An idea you really liked was up for Prioritization, but it didn’t get added to the roadmap.

What now? Sometimes, we’ve seen our product teams add ideas that didn’t win to their roadmap after the fact. Plus, with every fresh Prioritization cycle comes a new list of ideas to prioritize. You may see a popular, high-ranking idea that didn’t win before get put back on the list. Or, the community finally has the opportunity to prioritize an idea that you upvoted and hope is delivered as a feature in future releases. Either way, participating in Prioritization is a great way to help product managers with the Salesforce release-planning process.
