It is hard to believe that the Salesforce Winter ’20 release is here. Once again, this release is full of new features. There is no way that I can talk about them all, here are my top five. Most of my focus will be on the new Salesforce Mobile App. Salesforce for iOS and Android v222.0 will be available in the App Store and Google Play Store sometime the week of October 14th.
1) Salesforce Mobile App
I am very excited about the new Salesforce Mobile App that will make its appearance during the week of October 14th. The new Mobile App will give you the ability to have the same look and feel as Lightning Experience on your desktop. With plenty of new capabilities, you can quickly and easily get your mobile users working with Salesforce. The new app reduces training time and promotes mobile device usage by presenting the user’s familiar desktop Lighting Experience on mobile platforms. The app also provides mobile devices with access to Lightning Experience Apps.
The same navigation with Desktop and Mobile
Mobile can now access the App Launcher, and you can decide which Apps are available on Mobile.
Big Dog Central is a Lightning Detail Page built for both Desktop and Mobile at the same time. No more need to build separate Mobile pages. Here is the desktop view.
Here is the Mobile View
Notice that your Global Actions are displayed across the top of the screen, and Favorites, Search, Notifications, and Menu are at the bottom.
Salesforce has made it easy for you to switch to the new Salesforce Mobile App by adding the New Salesforce Mobile App QuickStart in Setup. The Salesforce Mobile App QuickStart, will allow you to get a glimpse of the new features available in the application, access the tools you need to optimize your Lightning pages for mobile, and provide your users access to the software.

And if all this is not enough for you, you can also call me to give you a helping hand.
2) The Recycle Bin has come to Lightning Experience
With Winter ’20, you can now access the recycle bin in Lightning Experience via the App Launcher, or add it to your Navigation Bar. It comes standard with two List Views: My Recycle Bin and the Org Recycle Bin, but you can add others if you like. Select the desired item and click the Restore button (notice it is now called Restore instead of Undelete). No more returning to Classic to access the recycle bin. Reports and Dashboards are also now included.
3) New Report Features
Here are some new report features for the Winter ’20 Release. Think about the ways you can use these features in your reports!
4) In-App Guidance
Now you can use clicks, instead of code, to create in-app guidance that will engage directly with your users. Write your own content and include action buttons to an important URL of your choice in the prompts. You can pick the target audience, and specify where and for how long the prompts will appear.
You can use prompts to:
You can add up to 500 prompts per org, and this limit doesn’t include prompts installed from packages. You can add multiple prompts to the same page, but multiple prompts can’t appear at the same time.
In-App Guidance setup is found in Setup – Enter In-App Guidance in the Quick Find box.
5) Printable List Views
Now you don’t have to print your entire screen just to make a hard copy of your list. Generate a condensed, minimalist, ink-saving view of your lists and related lists with Printable View.
