Communities for Beginners

Salesforce Communities are ideal for companies looking to enhance relationships with partners and customers, or improve internal processes with its employees. One of the great things about Community Cloud is its flexibility as you can adapt its function to fit your business needs.

Communities can be helpful for businesses that need a safe space to generate and test new products ideas, or build closer relationships with  customers, or exchange product information with partners. These were just a few of the Community benefits that Trailhead’s Community Cloud Module taught me. Below you will find a summary of the topics included in this module.
