Productivity

Process Builder and Flow Builder for Quip

Now, users have the ability to deliver templated solutions with clicks, not code.

As of the release, you can now build collaborative documents into your automated processes and deploy customized documents that auto-fill with relevant Salesforce metadata.

As Salesforce tells in its learning objectives for the Productivity unit within the Trailhead module, Summer ’19 Release Highlights, this is just the start of how reps can resolve cases faster and easier utilizing Quip.

Quip Notifications Lightning Component

With the summer release, users can work in Quip without even leaving the Salesforce platform or any custom Lightning page.

How?

Admins, just embed the Quip Notifications Lightning component directly on your home page, and you won’t miss a single thing!

Quip for Service Cloud

Users can now resolve cases more quickly through collaborative case swarming. This allows team members to centralize case data and team communications into an “integrated, collaborative document experience.”

Quip for Sales Cloud

Quip Autofill templates let users scale their strategies with the summer release.

You can create and pre-populate new Account Plans, Mutual Success Plans, QBR documents, and more with data from Salesforce.

(Pretty cool, right?)

Setup and User Management Enhancements

These enhancements make data sharing fast and easy!

How?

Admins, just connect the Salesforce and Quip platforms, and experience a reduction in onboarding time and user management.
