With each new release, Lightning Experience is getting faster, quicker and easier to maintain. Winter’20 release will give you a plethora of reasons to switch to Lightning Experience.
Migrate to avoid migraine!
Starting October 2019, 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 a few weeks (Approximately, 40 Days) before Salesforce turns on Lightning Experience in your Org. Users still have access to Salesforce Classic after Lightning Experience is turned on. But Lightning Experience is where you want to be for driving business growth and improving productivity.
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?

1. Count Unique Values in Report Results (Beta):- See how many distinct values your report returns with a unique count. For example, opportunity reports often list multiple opportunities with the same account. Add a unique count to the Account Name column to see how many individual account values appear in the report. Unique counts appear as grand totals at the bottom of the report and as subtotals for each group. Read the rest of this entry!
