Create personalized experiences for every user. Using CRM data, you can target different audiences with unique content.

Lightning Experience has been infused with Trailhead fun. Lightning is easier to read, with clear hierarchies between text box headers, body, and buttons. It’s easier to see, with more compact design that allows for greater density and more efficiency when you work. And, it has higher contrast and depth between elements, making it easy to see and interact with components and their constituent parts.
 
Winter ’18 is a major release of Lightning components for the Salesforce developer and admin community. We are delivering over 25 new components for use by our developers and admins to accelerate app development and customization.
 
Now you can conduct unit tests on your Lightning components to understand their performance and downstream impacts. Lightning Testing Service helps ensure you build and customize with confidence.
 
With Dynamic Lightning Pages, admins can declaratively build better experiences with more control over what end users see. Use component properties to make a component appear or disappear depending on workflow or related values. This means targeted personalization for every user.
 
Go beyond the templates Salesforce provides for home pages, record pages, and console apps. Developers can create any custom Lightning page template they need, so you can provide your team members with any page layout they need to succeed in Lightning Experience.
