GDPR for Salesforce Admins and Developers

Probably, Salesforce with it’s every release enhances the platform with some of the amazing new features. Above all, Salesforce came up with the concept of individual object with Spring’18 release. So, a Salesforce admin needs to enable it from data protection & privacy configuration page. Most importantly, once this feature is enabled then both admins and developers can begin using individual object.

Individual object is use to track person’s data collection preferences i.e. whether they want to be processed or not and so on. An individual record is not associated with one lead, contact or person account record. Besides, if a lead and contact record both are for the similar person then person’s preferences can be tracked with a single individual record value linking both lead and contact record.

GDPR seems like daunting only if personal information is being stored on more than one database. In contrast, with Salesforce as a consolidated CRM having fewer databases will limit GDPR issues. Probably, managing large volumes of data can be troublesome. Therefore, strategies need to be planned out. Consequently, GDPR can completely revolutionize and transform the organizations by improving data privacy and security. As a result, the features discussed in this blog are just a few of the benefits of GDPR within Salesforce. Let’s keep finding out more and more.
