Release Notes Version 5.6 May 2017: Summary List

IMPORTANT / PLEASE READ: The release notes are organized in a new way. Features are categorized into three groups: automatic updates which are immediately available in your org after the release upgrade, incremental improvements to existing features that require some Admin configuration, and new features which typically require more extensive Admin configuration and may involve thinking differently about your business processes. Please note, a module such as CoPilot or Surveys may have enhancements in more than one of these categories.
