Creating and editing a Lightning app is a cinch. As in Salesforce Classic, you can create apps in Lightning Experience, but with even more bells and whistles. You can brand and customize Lightning apps to help your users work more efficiently.
For example, you can create a Lightning app for your finance department that includes all important items (including tabs) that users need to complete common tasks. You can customize the navigation bar color, brand it with a logo, and make the app available in the App Launcher for the user profiles associated with the finance department.
- From the Home tab in Setup, enter App in the Quick Find box, then select App Manager.
- Click New Lightning App.
In the Lightning App Wizard, create an app with these parameters.
- Click Save and Finish to exit the wizard.
- Click to open the App Launcher, and select the Delivery Tracker app.
