But I want my users to be able to access this gmail integration with Salesforce on their phone.  Does anyone know of or recommend an ios app or solution where my users can log an email, create a new lead etc. to Salesforce through gmail on ios?

Thank you.

You can't create this data type field on Activity. You can promote and upvote this idea here Allow custom "Text Area (Long)" fields on Activities.

Our sales team is using Salesforce Inbox and getting read receipts when sending emails to leads. Is there a way to pass those read receipt flags into a Salesforce record?

Hi Gordon - Read receipt flags don’t pass into Salesforce at this time, but your sales reps will be able to see read receipts in folders via the Outlook add-in and the Chrome extension. Recommend submitting this as an idea on IdeaExchange!

Hi Natan - yes, its possible and has a purpose. 

The app has specific functionality, but there may be some features of the full site you want to access.  By switching to your mobile browser you are able to switch to Classic mode and gain access to elements that might not be accessible via the salesforce mobile interface. 

Once use case for this would be for an admin to login as another user to see what their mobile expierence is like.  The Admin could login via their mobile browser, switch to Classic, get to setup>users, login as a specific user, and if they are a Lightning User, they will get see that users Salesforce mobile view.

Hi all,
Do you know if in SalesForce there is an app similar to Oracle Voice for Sales Cloud?
That is, in the mobile application sales representatives can generate appointments and tasks by voice.

@Hernan: Unfortunately, there is no built in feature for such functionality. But you can have a look at below AppExchange products.

hi all,
I have problems with completing a trailhead exercise which is called: Create a global quick action for adding a new opportunity
I could create the quick action, but when trying to verify it says:
The 'Opportunity Name', 'Close Date', 'Stage' and 'Amount' fields do not appear to be on the new action page layout.

Indeed I created that quick action with these fields only, as you can see on the screenshot.
Can someone help?

Hi Scott,
             Why is the "New Note" Publisher action not showing in Salesforce1?
Knowledge Article Number 000206849
Description If you are a part of the Pilot Program "Salesforce Notes", the Standard "New Note" Publisher Action will not be visible in Salesforce1. 

Resolution If you are a part of the Pilot Program "Salesforce Notes", the Standard "New Note" Publisher Action will not be visible in Salesforce1. There will be a separate "Note" action, and this is the action that will need to be added to your Page Layouts to use Notes in Salesforce1.
1. From Setup, click Create > Global Actions > Publisher Layouts.
2. Click Edit next to a global publisher layout.
3. Drag the Note action to the Publisher Actions section. Use the Note action—****not the New Note
4. Click Save.
5. If you have additional global publisher layouts, repeat these steps to add the Note action to those, as

Can anyone please explain to me as to what is the difference between Salesforce lightning and Salesforce1 App, or how are they related?

Salesforce1 Introduces Salesforce1. Salesforce1 is the new social, mobile and cloud customer platform built to transform sales, service and marketing apps.Salesforce1 is the first CRM platform for developers, ISVs, end users, admins and customers moving to the new social, mobile and connected cloud. Salesforce1 is a brand new app which replaced Salesforce Chatter and is what most of the current Salesforce buzz surrounds. In theory it'll allow you to make use of ALL Salesforce functionalities from your mobile, including all custom objects, apps and even Visualforce pages. It's also feed-first, so Chatter is central to it.

Lightning Experience:
 Lightning Experience, the new, fast, beautiful user experience from Salesforce. With a sales-centric mindset, we focused on reinventing the desktop environment to better support your sales process. The result is an intuitive, intelligent interface that helps sales reps work more naturally and close more deals faster.
It’s really just the beginning! Lightning Experience will transform Salesforce CRM and extend to service, apps, platform, and more. No matter what department you're in, we understand that the way people work is changing.
All this change is greatly influenced by the rise of mobile. Sales reps at your company are already using mobile to research prospective customers, get directions to client meetings, connect socially with customers, and more. We get that. That’s why Lightning Experience takes the cool stuff from the mobile experience and brings it to the desktop. 

Salesforce1 is using same framework for user interface like lightning but both are dieffrent.
