You can upgrade a Classic app to a Lightning app in Lightning Experience, enhancing it for your Lightning Experience users with a customized color, logo, utility bar, and additional items like Lightning Pages supported in the navigation bar.
|Available in: Lightning Experience|
|Available in: Contact Manager, Group, Professional, Enterprise, Performance, Unlimited, and Developer Editions|
|To view apps:||“View Setup and Configuration”|
|To manage apps:||“Customize Application”|
From Setup, enter App in the Quick Find box, then select App Manager.
Find the Classic app that you want to upgrade in the apps list.
A checkmark in the Visible in Lightning column means that the app is accessible in Lightning Experience via the App Launcher and is fully functional.
Even though a Classic app works in Lightning Experience, it doesn’t take advantage of all the benefits of being a Lightning app. That’s why we recommend that you upgrade it.
Click , and select Upgrade.
Your Classic app is copied and upgraded for Lightning Experience. You now have two versions of the app: a Classic version, and a Lightning version. After you upgrade it, the Classic app is no longer accessible in Lightning Experience via the App Launcher. You’ll still see the Classic app in the apps list, but with the Visible in Lightning column deselected.
The two versions of your app now must be managed separately. Future changes you make to the Classic app won’t be reflected in the Lightning version of the app, and vice versa.
You can toggle the availability of your Classic apps in Lightning Experience by selecting or deselecting Show in Lightning Experience on the Classic app’s detail page.
