A Step-by-Step Guide to Notify Users When Important Events Occur
Empower your users to stay on top of important events with Salesforce Custom Notifications, a powerful feature introduced in the Summer ’19 release. Unleash the ability to send tailored push notifications on mobile devices or desktop alerts, ensuring your users are always in the loop.
Salesforce Custom Notifications Setup
Setting up Custom Notifications is a breeze and follows a straightforward, declarative process. Begin by creating a custom notification type. Enable notifications for both Lightning Experience and the Salesforce Mobile App. And then create a Flow with ‘Send Custom Notification’ action, that was introduced in Winter ’20 release.
Better Alternative to Email Alerts
Custom Notifications emerge as a superior alternative to traditional email alerts. Consider scenarios like creating a Case for an Account – sending a custom notification to the Account owner with Case details proves more effective than an email. Why? Clicking on the notification allows direct access to the specific record, minimizing app-switching and enhancing user experience.
Enhance user engagement and streamline communication within your Salesforce environment by implementing Custom Notifications. Invest 15-20 minutes in this guide to unlock the full potential of this feature.
