With each new release, Lightning Experience is getting faster, quicker and easier to maintain. Spring’19 release will give you plethora of reasons to switch to Lighting Experience.
Migrate to avoid migraine!
Starting October 2019, with the Winter ’20 release, Salesforce will turn on Lightning Experience for all orgs on a rolling basis. What does it mean? If you are still using Salesforce Classic user interface, you have only 9 months (Approximately, 190 Working Days) before Salesforce turns on Lightning Experience in your Org. As a result, you have limited time to plan and migrate to Lightning Experience.
Now what? Well, you have two options:
- Take advantage of the lead time – before Lightning Experience is turned on – to understand how your org’s features and customizations perform in the new interface and prepare your users via change management.
- Or, hmm… ugh! adopt ‘head in the sand’ approach – i.e., don’t do anything until October 2019 – and invite migraine!
Since the choice seems like a no-brainer, what is your game plan?
