Top Five Features For Salesforce Community Cloud. Salesforce Spring ’17 Release.

Audience Targeting for Pages and Groups

Audience Targeting for Pages and Groups

Personalise pages and groups in your community based on criteria, such as:

  • A user’s profile
  • Location
  • Record type

Select one or more criteria types to create basic or advanced targeting rules. Easily see who has access to each page or group with a quick, at-a-glance summary.

Audience targeting enables a unique experience for every user, and the ability to customise groups according to specific business needs, such as sales or service.

Google Analytics for Self-Service

Google Analytics for Self-Service

With advanced Google Analytics, understand the effectiveness of your self-service community on case deflection, through real-time data on how users use the community. Track the search keywords, discussions and articles most used to deflect cases, or what users have clicked on or viewed before a case is created. Get deeper insights on page view traffic by leveraging community dimensions, such as user ID, user type, or Salesforce objects.

Direct Messages

direct messages in salesforce community

Now, with Direct Messages, you can empower community managers to have one-to-one or one-to-few conversations with members on topics that may be better addressed privately. Start a message directly from a post or question in the community, or from a user’s profile.

Direct Messages support file attachments, so you can share files with users privately.
