Salesforce1 mobile app releases update
The new release of Salesforce1's mobile app adds more reporting capabilities aimed toward company staff, from executives to sales representatives.
The new features of the app, released July 3, include a single interface with drag-and-drop capabilities for charts, maps and other data, and are designed to give users access to data and the ability to integrate it with other Web and mobile apps. The customizable app includes data visualization features like charts and graphs, which are created in Salesforce and can be embedded into customer record pages. To create a visual element, the user inputs data into the app and Salesforce1 does the calculations. The chart engines are open source and free for end users, while the application programming interfaces (APIs) belong to Salesforce.
Users can share data and visual elements with co-workers through the Salesforce1 Chatter feed, which lists posts in a similar format to a social media platform.
