Your users are busy. They’re closing deals, providing top-notch service, and marketing to your prospects and customers. By creating customized pages, you can put key information at your users’ fingertips and provide them with an easy interface to update and add records.
The Lightning App Builder is a point-and-click tool that makes it easy to create custom pages for Salesforce1 and Lightning Experience. With the Lightning App Builder, you can combine various components on a single page to give your users what they need all in one place.
Lightning Pages are the underlying technology for the Lightning App Builder. A Lightning Page is a custom layout that lets you design pages for use in the Salesforce1 mobile app or in Lightning Experience. A Lightning Page is composed of regions that contain components.
Here’s a sneak peek at one of the pages you’re going to build.
The structure of a Lightning Page adapts for the device it’s viewed on. The template you choose when creating the page controls how it displays on a given device. The Lightning Page’s template divides the page into regions.
A Lightning component is a compact, configurable, and reusable element that you can drag and drop onto a Lightning Page in the Lightning App Builder.
The components pane contains all standard and custom Lightning components that are supported for your Lightning Page. Click and drag a component to add it to the page.
We’ll create all three. Let’s start with the Home page.
