Lightning for Outlook and Lightning Sync are just like Salesforce for Outlook because they let your teams see, access, and update Salesforce content directly from Microsoft Outlook®. In addition, your teams can sync important records, like contacts and events, that they update from both systems.
Why make the switch? The biggest difference is that our cloud-based products don’t require manual upgrades like Salesforce for Outlook does. Instead, we push the latest upgrades to you. And when your reps spend less time maintaining software, they can spend more time doing what’s important: making your customers happy. Because Lightning for Outlook and Lightning Sync support the latest Microsoft applications, we continue to introduce the latest most innovative features for those products.
And keep in mind that although Lightning for Outlook and Lightning Sync include a few features that require Lightning Experience, most features are available from both Salesforce Classic and Lightning Experience.
Ready to get started? The first thing to do is to check the Lightning for Outlook and Lightning Sync system requirements to make sure that you meet them. If your system is all set, review our product documentation to learn about the features available for these products. Finally, take a look at our setup and migration documentation to see how to give your teams access.
