The Salesforce Discord Collective Presents:
THE SUMMER 21 RELEASE NOTES - ABRIDGED

CRITICAL STUFF

GENERAL STUFF

Includes Sales & Service stuff because those sections were too short to stand alone.

SHARING

Yup, sharing gets its own section this time, even if it’s short. One, there’s some nice updates to QoL. Two, the way sharing has evolved in the past 2 years means that it’s time to focus on it. So, yeah, sharing section.

Yes, this looks awesome. It does, however, pose a problem as it adds yet another layer of complexity in permission handling. Remember this ? That was already hard for most administrators. Now you add Perm Set groups, Muting Perm Sets, Restriction Rules. Thankfully they added the UI level Share parsing.

What you probably want to do right now if you’re an existing organization where Sharing and Permissions are important is to start Designing Personas of your users, and seeing if leveraging these new features can improve maintenance. If you’re a new admin, a new consultant, or on a greenfield project, double the time you allocated to permissions definition and actually ask yourself how you would design this now. It’ll matter for the long run.
