Lightning App Manager in Salesforce - All you Need to Know

Lightning App In Salesforce

An app is a group of components that work together to accomplish a certain task. With Lightning Experience, your users can access collections of objects, tabs, and other items in a single handy bundle in the navigation bar thanks to Lightning applications. 

With Lightning apps, you can give your apps a unique colour and branding. Even a utility bar and Lightning page tabs can be added to your Lightning app. Your organization's members may work more productively by quickly switching between apps. What matters most to sales representatives? Organizations, events, and accounts. What about managers of sales? Dashboards and reports come in the first place. 

Each Lightning app features a top navigation bar that enables your users to: 

  • Discover what they require using item names for quick identification. 
  • With a single click, complete tasks and access recent records and lists. 
  • Customize the menu to reflect how they operate in a particular way.
