Introducing the Enhanced Profile UI
Its long overdue but I’m please to report that salesforce have finally introduced a new, enhanced user profile user interface. But don’t get too excited just yet – it’s currently in Pilot so unless you have some leverage with salesforce (e.g. lots of users!) you probably won’t be able to get this functionality in your production environment for a little while. I would still recommend signing up for this pilot to express your interest in the new functionality.
Essentially the new interface makes it a lot easier for salesforce sysadmins to navigate the profiles & settings thus saving valuable time. It provides useful information about each of the permissions in a new description field, allowing for more ‘informed’ decisions when enabling a permission on a profile.
There is also an extremely useful new search/find tool which provides a lookup based on entering the setting/permission name. I’m sure this new user interface will be well received and it certainly gets my vote – for those on the pilot please feel free to share your feedback and comments.
To get a better idea of the new features please check out the video below:
* 40% fewer clicks than the original profile interface
* Find and change profile settings easily
* Quickly navigate across profile settings
