We took a look at the Winter ’19 Sandbox Preview and how to get your preview last week, but now it is time to take a look at the Winter ’19 Release Notes! Salesforce has shared the notes for the upcoming release and contains all the details for the new features being added to your Salesforce instance. Each release contains updates and new features across the entire platform, including Service Cloud, CPQ, Pardot, Einstein Analytics, and Sales Cloud in these release notes.

We take a look in this blog at some of the features that stick out as important additions coming in this release. The release notes are always vast and far too large to read on your own. Blog posts like this are a great way to catch some of the features those in your community will be talking about without having to read all of the notes.

Now you have the ability to customize whether you want to keep the current format or change to a compact version. The current version is called Comfy setting while the new version is called Compact setting which fits 30% more on the page.
