Personalize the Navigation Bar in Less Time

We’ve made it easier for users to personalize their navigation in Lightning apps. Your users can get back to work in no time with an enhanced user interface. Or, users can simply drag items around the navigation bar to where they want them to quickly adjust the order.

Where: This change applies to Lightning Experience in Professional, Enterprise, Performance, and Unlimited editions.

Why: In the enhanced navigation bar editor, it’s easier to search through favorites or all available items to select what to add. The new editor minimizes the need for users to use temporary tabs.

How: Drag items around the navigation bar to reorder. Want to make more changes? Click the pencil icon on the navigation bar to get started.

If you don’t want your users to personalize the navigation bar for a specific app, you can disable personalization. From Setup in Lightning Experience, go to the App Manager. Edit the desired app. On the App Options page, select Disable end user personalization of nav items in this app. Users can’t change the navigation bar when you disable personalization or if it’s a Salesforce Classic app.

If you don’t want temporary tabs to be created when users access items outside of the app, you can disable the behavior from the same page.
