The Spring ‘22 release is scheduled to go live on Monday, February 14, 2022. This release delivers enhancements to the platform and its integrations from security, to revenue intelligence, to marketing and analytics. The Growth Heroes team has compiled the below list as top features to be versed in.
This topic, while not technically part of the release, is still a high-priority discussion point as it impacts all users. On February 1st, MFA (Multi-Factor Authentication) was automatically enabled for all accounts. This extra security measure protects accounts from unwanted login activity and phishing attempts. The Growth Heroes team has this resource blog with all the information you need when the MFA requirements become mandatory with no opt-out option later in 2023.
Dashboards are already a great way to gain insight into business metrics and with this new feature, users can automatically tune dashboards to business goals with dynamic gauge charts. They’re great for tracking performance and business goals as they are dynamic to the business.
When adding a gauge chart in the dashboard builder, there are two modes: standard and dynamic. The standard mode allows you to use fixed values that create the gauge chart. In the dynamic mode, users can control the chart measure, chart target, and maximum value within the chart, making the dashboard all that more personalized.
Pardot enhancements are long overdue, but since the rollout of the lightning experience for Pardot, the rollout of new updates has been picking up. The latest addition includes being able to customize form styles on Pardot landing pages. Marketers can now have consistent branding across form styles within Pardot landing pages.
This new feature allows users to bulk import images for products using a CSV file. Media can be added to product variations and attachments when previously this was only possible with the parent product. New products can also be added in a more streamlined process with a workflow that consolidates the setup for a new product all-in-one screen. There is no longer a need to create products in one window and related records such as price books in other windows.
B2B2C Commerce management is enhanced with this latest release.
No one knows the sales pipeline better than the sales team, but other teams still need to have an idea of what’s going on. To help give teams more thorough insight, AI is leveraged to show opportunity progress, engagement, and activity details. Compiled in a flow chart view, pipeline inspections are a great addition for all teams.
