TrailheaDX ’21 for Admins


Last year, Salesforce brought you completely reimagined virtual experiences. For TrailheaDX ’21, we’re continuing to innovate and build on these one-of-a-kind virtual experiences that connect makers, builders, doers, and dreamers looking to improve their Salesforce skill sets. This year’s event includes exciting new demos, customer testimonials, content episodes featuring the latest technology, Q&A with product experts, awesome networking opportunities, special announcements from Salesforce executives, and an unforgettable broadcast featuring a luminary speaker.

TrailheaDX — Skill up at an out-of-this-world experience.

We’ll be broadcasting live, interactive, expert-led content across five broadcast channels on June 23, starting at 8:45 a.m. (PST). Those channels include Admin, Architect, Developer, Community & Ecosystem, and IT Leader. Tune into the Admin Channel to hear from your favorite product managers, who are excited to share the latest innovations on the platform for #AwesomeAdmins.

The purpose of this day is to enable you to integrate without code, empower you to automate across the platform, and hear from Trailblazers who are elevating their careers by learning the skills they need. You can also check out the Demos and Discussions to explore Salesforce features, what’s new with the platform, our cloud products, how we support sustainability, and, of course, the latest on Trailhead and certifications. Get information and answers straight from some of the people who help create the features and products themselves by interacting directly with them via chat. Whether you’re planning to join in live, host a virtual watch party with friends, or tune in after, you’ll find a lot in store for Salesforce Admins at TrailheaDX ’21.

Plan ahead

We recommend you do some planning using Agenda Builder before the event to make your experience awesome. Below are some helpful tips:

  • Think about your knowledge gaps. Is it Einstein, Commerce Cloud, MuleSoft, or Quip? Which products or features are you less than familiar with?
  • What do you need to know? Will you be implementing MFA in the upcoming year or integrating with more systems? If so, look for the Security segment that will give you best practices and implementation tips.
  • Mix up your segment viewing! At TrailheaDX this year, we have 30-minute segments, cert-prep rooms, Trailblazer Campfires, demos, and so much more. Make sure you make time to check out each.
