Exciting evolution of the Salesforce AppExchange

The growth in the number of Lightning add-ons available in the Salesforce AppExchange is great to see and makes the migration from Classic to Lightning an even more attractive proposition.

If you are new to Lightning, you may not be aware of the difference between each of the categories:

  • Lightning Apps
  • Lightning Components
  • Lightning Bolts
  • Lightning DataIt

is certainly worth spending time to understand the differences as it will help you to find the most appropriate solution when browsing the AppExchange.  Just click on each of the links above to find out more.

Other recent improvements to the AppExchange include the addition of trailhead suggestions throughout the pages, as well predictive recommendations based on user behavior (using Einstein). An online marketplace is a great use case for AI and it will be fascinating to see it in action.


For those visiting the Salesforce AppExchange they will have noticed some big differences this week. The app market place is revamped with many partners taking the opportunity to update their content. There are also several improvements including integration with Trailhead, personalisation, a wider variety of content and more information about the apps contained.
