Demystifying Salesforce Anywhere

Demystifying: Salesforce Anywhere

Before we start talking, lets watch this amazing demo video.

Salesforce Anywhere was announced at TDX20, it’s a huge addition to the Core platform, and surely is a much-needed feature, especially in times, when remote working is a new normal for most of us. To me it feels like a combination of several powerful collaboration apps into one, like

  • Slack / Microsoft Teams styled collaboration with rooms/channels, emojis, but it’s very much contextual, with your Salesforce data, and much more.
  • Contextual Chat, not just plain text chat, but Video/Voice calls, and screen sharing but in the context of your Salesforce data.
  • Quip/Google Docs styled collaboration on a single record with the ability to comment and discuss specific parts of a record.
  • IT Support anywhere, with the ability to remotely troubleshoot issues.
  • The best part is to let the user and Salesforce business data stay inside Salesforce, and avoid complex integrations with external chat/business collaboration apps.

In this post, we will explore various key highlights, which we know so far, and until we get a hands-on experience of the real app. Picture below gives a quick overview of what to expect on a high level, there are so many interesting and minute details to observe.

Salesforce Anywhere Highlights

#1 Voice/Video/Chat

For remote team collaboration, including external clients/stakeholders. This comes bundled with voice/video calls, text chat in the context of a given record. This integrated Native real-time chat and video is powered by Amazon Chime. Optional Zoom offering as an out-of-the-box integration. This is quite cool, as it probably opens the option to use your existing Zoom licenses in Salesforce.

#2 Mobile App

A brand new mobile app, which looks quite fluid and refreshing from the various screenshots and videos we saw so far. It seems to be offering chat, video calls, slack-style channels, and emoji support, along with alerts on record subscriptions.

#3 In Context – Specific Collaboration

How awesome it will be to see who is working on which part of record, with an ability to comment and chat on a specific field of a record is a huge benefit, just like Quip and Google Docs.
