4 New Ideas on the Product Roadmap Admins Will Love


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

During the previous Prioritization cycle in January 2022, 6,000 of you Trailblazers told us which ideas were your favorites on the list. Hats off to all who participated! Now, let’s take a look at our winning ideas you’ll see delivered in upcoming releases. Shall we?

1. Commerce winner: Make category and category fields available as a searchable in Commerce

Allow search admins to include category and category fields as searchable fields in Commerce. This would ensure that a shoe categorized as a “tennis shoe” appears if a user searches for “tennis shoe” even if “tennis shoe” isn’t a part of the product name or description. Estimated GA Release: Good news! The team was able to pull this work in earlier than expected and searching by category is now available.

2. Nonprofit winner: Elevate Email Receipts – Custom domain support

Support the use of custom email “From” addresses for the sending of email receipts in Elevate. The Elevate admin interface would validate the setup of SPF records and automate the creation of DKIM signatures that could be added to the client’s DNS records. Estimated GA Release: Winter ’23.

3. Platform winner: Improved record type management

Allow mass assigning/unassigning of record types to permission sets and view which permission sets have access to a record type in a consolidated view. Estimated GA Release: Spring ’24.
