The ultimate Lightning Experience toolkit3 min read

With each and every release, Lightning Experience gets more and more impressive. Businesses who are still using Classic are beginning to get some serious FOMO, but most have no idea where to even begin. Luckily, there are loads of Salesforce tools to help you.

To help you start thinking seriously about your Lightning Transition, here are all of our go-to tools for Lightning Transition in one handy article.

1. Free guide for transitioning from Classic to Lightning (without the headache)

First of all, we’ve provided some best practices to get you on your way in the form of an in-depth step-by-step process, so you can learn how to transition from Classic to Lightning with ease.

Download it for absolutely nothing right here.

2. Lightning Experience Readiness Check and Lightning Experience Visualforce Check

How do know if you can handle transitioning to Lightning? Well, the Readiness Check tool scans your features and customisations, then it emails you a report on your Lightning Experience readiness.

The report gives you a better sense of how your tabs, objects, related lists, buttons, AppExchange packages–and more–work in Lightning Experience.

The Visualforce Report highlights key things in your Visualforce pages that either aren’t supported in Lightning Experience or can break things your users.

This helps you see which features and customisations are ready to be struck by Lightning, and those that need a little more attention before you transition.

3. Lightning Experience Configuration Converter

You’ve probably been happily using JavaScript buttons in the Classic UI for years, but now you’re moving to Lightning Experience and these buttons are kind of holding you back.

This tool scans for your Javascript buttons and creates point-and-click Lightning alternatives for them with just a few mouseclicks, so they don’t have to hold you back any more.

4. Magic Mover for Notes and Attachments

This tool does bulk conversions of Classic notes to Enhanced Notes and attachments to Salesforce Files.

This is necessary because files are optimised for Lightning Experience and have more capabilities beyond what Attachments can do — things like the ability to relate files to multiple records, track multiple versions, and view file previews.

Enhanced Notes are similarly optimised for Lightning Experience and can do way more than Classic Notes, such as the ability to relate a note to multiple records and track multiple versions.

5. Lightning Experience Usage App

This allows you to track user adoption metrics and visualise usage trends with daily updates, meaning you can monitor progress and make informed decisions about the user experience of Lightning.

It gives you insights like daily active users, the number of users who switch to Salesforce Classic per day, and the most-visited Lightning Experience pages, so you can understand what your users might need and focus on what’s really stopping them from adopting the new UI.

6. Salesforce Optimiser

This one gives you personalised, actionable recommendations for tweaking your implementation so it works to the best of its ability. Using this helps you clean up customisations, reduce any complex bits, and ultimately drive user and feature adoption.

If you’re still feeling a bit out of your depth, it’s totally understandable. Transitioning to Lightning is not an easy thing to do, especially if you’ve got lots of Classic-loving users. That’s why we now provide Salesforce Lightning Transition as one of our expert services.
