Work Through Lists with Ease Using Split View for Standard Navigation

Do you often find yourself working through multiple records in a list? With split view, you can see a list view and a record side by side. To move on to a new record, select it from the split view, and the new record opens with the list still in view. No more navigating back and forth between your list and your records. Split view is great for going through records in sequence or for quickly skimming through a set of records. The split view panel is collapsible for extra flexibility.

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

When: This functionality is available on a rolling basis during the Summer ’20 release.

How: To access split view, select Split View from the Display As dropdown menu. If you select split view for an object, that object automatically loads in split view until you change its Display As view.
