When we talk about some of the most used and advanced tools in Salesforce, I don’t think anyone will question this opinion of Actions and Forms.

Directly save the product details, record inventory scans, save contact information- all from your mobile device run by the Lightning components.
#3 Preference Based Display of Survey Pages
Your data in Salesforce org can be helpful in determining the survey pages that were viewed by the participants after one another. You just have to use a handful of variables for defining conditions in the page branching logic. Some org variable can also be used to define conditions stated by your org’s information. You can also define customized variable to allocate desired conditions to the values that you define in the system.
#4 Create Email Templates
A feature of this type is always neglected until you have a look on it. This improvement will come handy to design emails as per your wish.

It will be a major addition in the email section of Salesforce.
#5 Enabling Einstein Search
This is among those few features within Salesforce that is getting stronger after the release of each update.

You are just a click away from getting best suggestions for improving the user experience, as well as the overall performance.
#7 Scheduled List Emails
After the Salesforce Winter 21 release, you can schedule and select the appropriate time to send list emails. You have to select the desired date & time when you expect the list email to read. For instance, scheduling a list email to send in the beginning of a workday will be a better choice. Earlier this feature was only available for individual emails.
#8 Customize Community App (Pilot)
Various users have different needs and they prefer the Community App in a certain way and order. You can now place Mobile Publisher for the user’s frequently used menu options for a better reach. You can customize the type & order of items with the help of community Experience Builder.
