Lighting Experience is one of the best user interfaces designed by Salesforce. It is faster, quicker and easier to maintain. If you are still using Salesforce Classic user interface, Spring’18 release will give you hundreds of reasons to switch to Lighting Experience. Some of the key features, that are now available in Lightning, include – Personalized Navigation, Boost Productivity with Quick Text and Macros, Faster Flow for Adding Campaign Members, Track Campaigns with Path, Opportunity Split, Price Book Selection, Zero Quantity Order Lines Allowed on Order Products, Chat Faster with Quick Text in Lightning Experience, Upload Files Directly from a Flow, etc.
Currently, Spring’18 release is available under the pre-release program. On the 5th and 6th of January, Sandboxes will be upgraded; as a result, your organization will get the look and feel of Spring’18 release.
