*New* Lightning Administration Essentials

The backbone of Salesforce platform is the setups. Setups determine what you do, how you to it and where it's done for every user. Knowing your way around the configurations ensures that you can properly customize the system to work with your organization's unique workflows. With the launch of Lightning Experience, the setups have also been overhauled. You now have new settings for Lightning-specific functionality, plus how you access and use some of the original settings have changed. Let Administrative Essentials in Lightning Experience be your new roadmap to customize your system for your business.

You will learn how to:

  • Customize Lightning pages for Leads, Accounts, Contacts, and other records
  • Automate redundant work processes to eliminate unnecessary clicks for users
  • Setup and manage users
  • Set security and system access, including which users have access to Lightning and Classic
  • Create dynamic Lightning-enabled reports and dashboards
