Explore Lightning Experience...Before It's Too Late


You're a Salesforce Admin, and you've got your hands full with users who are deeply embedded in Salesforce Classic.

Your company has already invested lots of time, money and other resources in making sure that Salesforce Classic works well for your team.

All this "noise" about Lightning Experience seems irrelevant to you. In fact, you think that it's a huge distraction.

If Salesforce Classic works well, what's all this fuss about Lightning Experience?

Guess what? I thought the same thing about rotary phones.

If you keep burying your head in the sand, your users, business leaders, and perhaps your colleagues will eventually approach you asking about a cool demo, video or article they came across showcasing some amazingly cool, robust features only available in Lightning Experience.

They will likely ask you one of the following questions:
  • Why don't we have these features?
  • Can you tell me a little bit more about these features?
  • Can you turn it on for us?
  • Why haven't you opened up these features to our team?
  • How long will it take for you to turn this on for us?
How will you answer these questions, if you're not familiar with Lightning Experience?

Instead of putting yourself in an embarrassing and frustrating situation like the one described above, I suggest that you:
  • start getting familiar with Lightning Experience, 
  • start showing your peers, manager, internal CRM champions some of the new features available in Lightning Experience,
  • identify a small pilot group of internal users who could potentially benefit from migrating over to Lightning Experience, while providing you with feedback and suggestions to improve the configuration to impress the rest of the team,
  • identify and explore some of the nuances (gaps) that might prevent you from rolling out Lightning Experience within your organization.
Still unsure where to start?

No worries.

Check out the resources below, and you will quickly be on your way to positioning yourself as the resident Lightning Experience expert within your organization.

Your career might depend on it.
