[13-Aug-19] New Updates Across Custom Field Sets, Lead Management, Tasks and Accounts

We’re out with new features and enhancements across the web platform. Here are some highlights –

  1. Custom field sets can now be used in lead fields.
  2. Dropdown type fields now support a large number of values.
  3. You can now create recurring tasks and custom actions on tasks.
  4. We’ve updated the account import summary report with the status of each record.
  5. We also made a few other notable enhancements detailed in the release notes below.


Custom Field Sets and Lead Management

1. You can now associate custom field sets directly with lead fields. So for example, instead of attaching a lead’s identification documents to a document collection activity, you can upload them directly to a lead field.
For more information, see Adding Custom Fields Sets to Leads.
