10 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 they want to see on the product roadmaps. Then, we use the results to determine which new features to build for upcoming releases.

In September 2021, nearly 5,000 of you told us which ideas were your favorites on the list. Awesome job, everyone who participated! Here’s a look at the winning ideas you’ll see delivered in future releases.
