Use Lightning External Apps and Lightning External Apps Plus Licenses to Create Custom Digital Experiences
We are introducing two community user licenses, Lightning External Apps and Lightning External Apps Plus, for customers who want to create highly customized digital experiences for a broad range of external members. The licenses include more platform capabilities, such as custom objects, API calls, and file and data storage, to support customization and application development and take advantage of our seemless integration with the Salesforce platform. The Lightning External Apps Plus license also lets you tie in CRM objects and embed Einstein Analytics dashboards. You can combine these licenses with other community licenses, or they can stand alone.
Better Place for Time in Feeds
When you visit a community feed on your desktop or mobile device, the date and time are easier to see. The timestamp appears under the author’s name, out of the way of the row of actions that appear below the content.
Manage Customer User Permission Has Been Removed from All Standard Profiles
The Manage Customer User permission has been removed from all standard profiles to give admins more control over who can manage customer users. You can still grant this access to users who manage customer and partner users. To grant access on standard profiles, create a permission set with the same access as the Manage Customer User permission and assign it to standard profiles as needed. To grant access on custom profiles, either manually enable the Manage Customer User permission or assign a perm set that grants the same permissions.
