Custom Theming and Branding

Customize Lightning Experience for your business.

As part of myLightning, Custom Theming and Branding for Lightning Experience lets you customize key styling elements, such as the global header color, brand image, link color, page background color and image, as well as the default banner and avatar images for groups and user profiles.

Personalized Navigation

Personalize the navigation bar to suit the unique way you work.

As part of myLightning, Personalized Navigation in Lightning Experience lets you personalize the navigation bar to suit the unique way you work. You can reorder items, and even rename or remove items you've added. You can even add temporary tabs to the navigation bar to access items like a dashboard, list, or record, and make the temporary tab permanent.

Lightning Developer Components

Accelerate app development and customization with new Lightning Components.

With the Spring '18 release, we are delivering dozens of new base Lightning components, including Carousel and Tree Grid, for the Salesforce Developer and Admin community to accelerate app development and customization.

Dynamic Lightning Pages

Make your Lightning app and home pages dynamic.

As part of myLightning, Dynamic Lightning Pages let you control when a component appears on a Lightning record page by adding filter conditions and logic to its properties. Now in Spring '18, you can set visibility conditions for components on the Lightning app and home pages too.

Console JavaScript API

Access Lightning Console apps programmatically.

The Lightning Console JavaScript API gives you programmatic access to Lightning Console apps, so you can fully integrate Lightning Console apps with the Lightning framework and extend them to meet your business needs. In Spring ’18, we added the ability to use many of the Classic Salesforce Console Integration Toolkit APIs in Lightning Console. You can now use your existing Visualforce pages and third-party Web Tabs containing JavaScript APIs in Lightning Console without rewriting any of your code. Additionally, you can now use the openTab and openSubtab APIs to open web tabs in Lightning Console apps.

Lightning Flow

Build rich and engaging screens with Lightning Components and stages.

As part of myLightning, Lightning Flow lets you build the flow of your dreams with Lightning Components on your screens. You can also now pause your flow and pick it up later. The person who starts a flow isn't always the one who finishes it. Finally, make your flows a beautiful, guided experience by overriding the elements of the flow with design built by your Lightning Component.
