Know What’s in Lightning Experience and What’s in Salesforce Classic

Everybody’s excited about Lightning Experience and everything it offers. But we also understand that lots of orgs continue to use Salesforce Classic—either exclusively or in tandem with Lightning Experience as it evolves.
One key to success during this time of transition is understanding what’s available in one, both, or all the Salesforce experiences. To guide you, we added experience information to the applicable release notes at the highest level: for entire clouds or for individual features within clouds. Let’s look at a couple of examples.
  • A new Service Cloud feature is available in both desktop experiences, so the Where section of the release note says, “This change applies to both Lightning Experience and Salesforce Classic.”
  • A new Sales Cloud feature is available in Lightning Experience only, so the Where section of the release note says, “This change applies to Lightning Experience only.”
If a key feature is also available in the Salesforce app, we mention that in the Where section of the release note. But you can also check the Mobile section for a complete list of what’s new.
