Let’s set sail on a quick navigation tour to see how you and your users can drill into a standard or custom object from the navigation bar. Just click on the item (for example, Opportunities) to view the item home screen.
If you don’t see the item you’re looking for in the navigation bar, or if you want to open a different app, click the App Launcher icon.
- All Apps shows your custom, standard, Lightning Experience, and connected apps in one place. Your admin chooses which third-party apps to connect with Salesforce, such Gmail, Google Drive, and Office 365. (1)
- All Items shows the home page, the feed, tasks, events, objects, custom tab types, and more. These items are independent of the app that shows up on the navigation bar. (2)
- You can search for apps, objects, and other resources by name in the Find an app or item box. (3)
- Authorized users can go directly to the AppExchange in one click, without leaving Lightning Experience. (4)
As an admin, you can change which apps appear on the App Launcher and the default order in which they appear. You and your users can then drag the tiles around to create your own personal view of the App Launcher.
The App Launcher’s great for finding an app or item even when it’s not on the navigation bar. Just click the App Launcher icon () to search for it by name. For example, say you’re looking for an item called Service. Enter Service in the search box to see items and apps that match your search as you type.
Setup is where you make the magic happen. It’s where you’ll customize and configure your org, support users, build functionality, and more. As you’re getting familiar with the Setup area, it’s important to note that it’s not about memorizing click paths, it’s about understanding what you're looking for in order to get to your destination.
