By following a few easy steps you can make your app available to users.

  1. To open your app page, from Setup, enter Lightning App Builder in the Quick Find box, select Lightning App Builder, and then click Edit next to the page.
  2. In the Lightning App Builder, click Activation.
  3. Update the activation properties, if desired.
    You can:
    • Change the page’s custom tab label. By default, the label that you give the Lightning page is used as the label for its custom tab.
    • Change the custom tab’s icon. The icon that you choose here is used as the icon for the page in the mobile app and in the Lightning Experience.
    • Adjust the Custom tab’s visibility if you’re activating the page for the first time.
  4. Add the page to one or more Lightning apps.
    Adding your app page to Lightning Experience makes it available to users viewing the app on desktop and in the Salesforce mobile app.
  5. Set the page’s position in the Salesforce “Mobile Only” app navigation.
  6. NOTE The first item that you put in the mobile navigation list becomes your users’ landing page.
  7. Click Activate.
