Make Lightning Experience the Only Experience

Ready to move from Salesforce Classic to Lightning Experience without looking back? Just hide the option to switch to Salesforce Classic from your Lightning Experience users so that they stay in Lightning Experience. This feature is new in both Lightning Experience and Salesforce Classic.

By default, when you enable Lightning Experience, your users get the Switcher, allowing them to switch back and forth between Lightning Experience and Salesforce Classic. But if you want some or all of your users to stick to Lightning Experience, you can remove the Switcher (1).Hide option to switch to Salesforce Classic

In Setup, enable the Hide Option to Switch to Salesforce Classic permission (2) in profiles and permission set.Hide option to switch to Salesforce Classic permission in SetupWhen you enable the permission for your Lightning Experience users, new and existing users see Lightning Experience the next time they log in to Salesforce. And, they no longer see the Switch to Salesforce Classic link.

Keep these considerations in mind when you enable the Hide Option to Switch to Salesforce Classic permission.
  • If users access features that aren’t available in Lightning Experience, they temporarily access Salesforce Classic in a new browser tab, even though the permission is enabled. They use Salesforce Classic only as long as they’re using a feature that’s not available in Lightning Experience.
  • The permission doesn’t affect the full site link in the Salesforce1 mobile browser app. Salesforce1 users always switch to the Salesforce Classic version of the full site, regardless of the interface they see from desktop devices.
  • Users with the system administrator profile or assigned one of the following permissions see the Switch to Salesforce Classic link even when the Hide Option to Switch to Salesforce Classic permission is enabled: Customize Application, Modify All Data, or Manage Users.
