Open a Window into Productivity with Pop-Out Utilities (Critical Update)

Pop utilities out of the utility bar and into their own separate windows. You can arrange popped-out utilities, even move them onto different monitors. You can interact with a popped-out utility alongside your main window, making multitasking a breeze. When you’re done using the utility, pop it back into your utility bar or close the window.

Where: This change applies to Lightning Experience for Essentials, Professional, Enterprise, Performance, Unlimited, and Developer editions. Lightning console apps are available for an extra cost to users with Salesforce Platform user licenses for certain products. Some restrictions apply. For pricing details, contact your Salesforce account executive.

When: Pop-out is automatically available for most standard utilities in Spring ’19. The critical update enables pop-out for custom utilities. This critical update will be activated for custom utilities on June 17, 2019. If a custom utility isn’t ready to pop just yet, or if you never want users to be able to pop it out, you can disable pop-out per utility.

How: In the utility bar, open a utility and then click the pop-out icon to open the utility in its own window.
