In classic left navigation bar, I have Custom Links on home tab under Useful Links section. These link connect to external application (something like http://Test.domain.com/createUserForm). In Lightning experience, when I navigate to same Useful Links section, I do not see these custom links under Useful Links section. I think, may be because these links are not supposed to be available in Ligntning, as per my knowledge. Please correct me if I am wrong. Now the question is, how do I convert these links so that they are available in both classic and lightning? Any links to blogs or examples appreciated.
Sidebar will not be available as Lightning Experience is based on mobile first design approach.
Possible solution is :
For Lightning Experience:
- Put your custom links in one custom object
- Create one lightning component and add this to all app pages/record pages/home pages.
- Put your custom links in custom object
- Create one home page component and add this to sidebar.
