Taking a break

I am taking a break and will be back again towards the end of March. I will be missing all the happenings for the Spring ’07 release. A few of the cooler items in the upcoming release are:

  • Customizable Search Results – you can go a step further than you can today and add Filters. This allows the end user to perform a generic search and then perform additional filtering on the search results without having to re-search. (Wish this was added to Views, so users wouldn’t have to create a new View everytime they want to filter for something.)
  • Time Based Workflow – Allows workflow events to be triggered based upon time passing. Looks like the timing can only be in Days. Hopefully, hours will be implemented as an option in the future.
  • Email Approvals – accept/reject your Approvals from your email client rather than having to log into Salesforce.
  • Rich content Solutions – allows you to document you Solutions in HTML format using a WYSIWYG editor. (wish this was on Activity comments too or, even better, as an option on all Long Text fields).
  • Enhanced Data Model Customization – allows you to create lookup relationships between Standard Objects, create recursive relationships on Standard Objects, etc.

I look forward to catching up on the new release when I get back. It’s not as grand as the Winter ’07 release, but it’s encouraging to see another release take place so quickly afterwards.

If you submit comments to the blog while I am out and don’t see them published on the site, now you know why. Have a good March!

App Exchange Favorites

As I peruse the App Exchange, I am going to start bookmarking apps that I like. This is mostly for my own benefit since the App Exchange site doesn’t have a way for me to save “My Favorites” (hint hint). I added this list as a page on this site, in case you are interested in checking it out from time to time or subscribing to it.
