Introduction

Salesforce listened closely to user feedback and industry insights to create a release that meets the changing demands and obstacles faced by companies across all industries. The Salesforce Summer '24 Release introduces a wealth of new features and enhancements aimed at elevating user experience, optimizing operations, and harnessing cutting-edge AI technologies to achieve superior business results. If organizations take advantage of the opportunities presented by the Summer '24 Release, they can expect to see tangible improvements in efficiency, productivity, and ultimately business performance. Let’s describe some of these updates.
 

Enhanced Salesforce for Slack Integration

Improvements to the Salesforce integration for Slack are revolutionizing the way teams collaborate and manage workflows. Central to these updates is the integration of advanced artificial intelligence capabilities, bringing generative artificial intelligence directly into everyday communications and making Slack an even more powerful tool for business productivity.

This update brings generative AI into daily communications, empowering teams to work smarter and faster, and reinforcing Salesforce's commitment to integrating cutting-edge technologies for better business results.
 

Upcoming Restrictions on Salesforce Cookie Use

The key changes in cookie restrictions is due to evolving web standards, where major web browsers are gradually moving to fully block third-party cookies. To adapt to these changes Salesforce will provide important steps to ensure the continued functionality of custom integrations and code that rely on Salesforce session cookies. Features such as Lightning Out and Visualforce authenticated pages on third-party sites are particularly impacted by these browser updates.

Key Changes:

  1. Third-party cookie blocking: As major browsers, including Google Chrome, plan to completely block third-party cookies by December 2024, Salesforce is taking steps to ensure that cookies used in the platform are recognized as third-party cookies.
  2. Enhanced security and compatibility: This update brings Salesforce's cookie practices in line with evolving web standards, improving security and compatibility across browsers.

Improved Error Management for Outdated Pages in Lightning Experience

Enhancing workflow in Salesforce’s Lightning Experience with improved error handling for pages that fall out of sync with the Salesforce server. This update is designed to reduce disruptions and offer a more user-friendly solution to synchronization issues.

Previously, an outdated page would instantly trigger an error message, forcing a page refresh. Now, the server attempts to process the outdated page first. If successful, you'll receive a warning message, allowing you to refresh the page at your convenience and avoid losing any progress. If the server can’t process the page, an error message will advise you to refresh the page to resynchronize with the server.
