Here are the key improved features and new tools in Lightning Experience:

  • new, intelligent home page
  • action-first workplace
  • optimized the layout for accounts and contact
  • list view with graphs and Kanban charts
  • opportunity board
  • report filters
  • flexible dashboard layout
  • intuitive navigation menu
  • relevant account insights

But before you get all too excited to switching to Salesforce Lightning Experience, make sure that your customizations are LEx ready by reviewing the 3Rs for smoother transition – replace, redirect, and redevelop. Replace entails addressing technical debt, utilizing out of the box capabilities, and validating business needs. Redirect requires detecting which platform is in use and appropriately route to Classic or Lightning pages.  And finally, when redeveloping you will want to consolidate work flow, triggers, and apex, and migrate to process builder for greater efficiency.

Moreover, it is important that you pilot it within core team and conduct tests. All of these should help you as you take your business to greater new heights!
