Introducing the Lightning Experience Transition Toolkit
With every release, Lightning Experience gets better and better, and the benefits of switching are hard to ignore. Whether it's the 850+ features only available in Lightning Experience, or the significant reduction in feature gaps, it's becoming much more attractive to make the move and make it now. But, you might be thinking “Chris, I get it. Lightning Experience is great. I want to use all those new features and help my users. But seriously...how and where do I even begin?”
We've provided a number of best practices to get you on your way, ranging from a short 10 Simple Steps to Roll Out Lightning Experience to an in-depth prescriptive change management and progressive approach to ease into the transition. We’ve also shared videos of how fellow Admins have approached moving on the Lightning Resource page. But the number one request we've heard from all of our Admins is: “Give us the tools to move to Lightning Experience.”
The toolkit addresses key phases of a Lightning Experience rollout, including:
Track user adoption metrics and visualize usage trends with daily updates from Lightning Experience Usage App.
