Sunday, April 3, 2016 - Global Picklists

As of today it's only available in developer and sandbox editions, but we wanted to review something that's coming soon.  Global picklists are the ability to add the same values across objects.  You can edit one list of values, which will take effect and change all values such as leads, accounts, or opportunities (this really helps with mapping between leads and accounts).

They are also very secure, locked down and only editable by admins.

Go to setup -> Create, then "Picklists.

Click "New"

At this point it looks and feels like your normal picklist area where you add the values, order them, etc.
