We added an App Launcher component to the Lightning App Builder.
Now you can make all your third-party apps available from the first page that your users
see. With a Home page, you can combine various components on a single page to present
key information to your user in one place. But until now, you couldn’t add any
third-party apps to Home pages. By adding an App Launcher component to the Home page,
users can access all their third-party apps and items in a single click.
This feature is new in Lightning Experience.
When you open the Lightning App Builder and select
Home Page, the App Launcher appears on the list of
components. Combine the App Launcher with other useful components to give your users all
the tools they need directly on their home page. For example, add a notification banner,
chatter feed, and task list.
The App Launcher is also now available with the Community Service (Napili) Community
template. Before this release, the App Launcher was available only with the Salesforce
Identity Aloha template.
