Salesforce showed a preview of product roadmaps during the Architect main show at Dreamforce 21. Product roadmaps is a tool that lets you find the upcoming features across Salesforce products. This tool became available to use at https://architect.salesforce.com/roadmap/products. Don't forget that forward-looking statement applies to this roadmap. Since roadmap items might change anytime, you should make your purchasing decisions according to the currently available products.
Although Salesforce migrated over the Lightning Experience roadmap in this first release, more products will be added soon. At the end, the goal is to have a single place to learn about the roadmaps of all Salesforce product portfolio.
Let's see what you have in product roadmaps today and then what you can expect in the future releases.
