Salesforce Integrations: Taking Salesforce to the Next Level

Empower your users to be more productive by connecting Salesforce to some of the industry’s leading business applications. Most of these integrated apps are available in both Salesforce Classic and Lightning Experience, but a few are available in only one or the other.

Financial Services Cloud

Share the wealth of Financial Services Cloud Lightning components that are now available in Communities. Get on the fast track to creating individuals and adding them to groups with the new Client Profile Builder. Take advantage of quick actions in Wave for Financial Services Cloud.

Health Cloud

We’ve streamlined the care of patients with chronic or long-term medical conditions by allowing them to have multiple, concurrent care plans and more than one care manager. And now patient lists created from the Einstein Analytics for Health Cloud app can be sent to and used in the Health Cloud console. To make your life easier as an admin, we’ve packaged up three new Lightning components that let you create patient communities in no time at all.

Customization

Make your Lightning pages smarter by adding the new Einstein Recommendations component. Navigate more quickly around the Object Manager and other parts of Setup in Lightning Experience. And get more done in Lightning Experience with enhanced approvals and Lightning flow runtime. If that’s not enough, check out the usability improvements to our data import tools and global picklists.
