Move Actions and Buttons Easily When Transitioning to Lightning Experience (Beta)

Don’t have time to move all your Salesforce Classic actions and buttons into Lightning Experience? The latest Lightning Experience Configuration Converter feature does just that in a simple, easy to understand wizard. Select the objects and page layouts to work on, and Salesforce does the heavy moving. The Lightning Experience Configuration Convertor, which was made generally available during Summer ‘18, has been enhanced. Easily move custom, standard, and global actions from the Quick Actions in the Salesforce Classic Publisher section of a page layout to the Salesforce Mobile and Lightning Experience Actions section. Also included the right mobile actions and move custom and standard buttons along the way.


As a beta feature, the Actions and Buttons feature in the Lightning Experience Configuration Converter is a preview and isn’t part of the “Services” under your master subscription agreement with Salesforce. Use this feature at your sole discretion, and make your purchase decisions only on the basis of generally available products and features. Salesforce doesn’t guarantee general availability of this feature within any particular time frame or at all, and we can discontinue it at any time.
