Change Your View with Display Density Settings
As we all know that “Winter is Coming”, Salesforce has given us few teeny weeny but pleasant surprises with its Winter ’19 release. With this release, Salesforce has come up with a lot of small tweaks to Lightning that adds up to a lot. There were few features which were already up and running in Classic but are now working on Lightning too.
By introducing the Display Density Settings, the user has the ability to change the density of the Salesforce screens for the user. Though, it was a surprise for a lot, but it was a pleasant surprise. This means that there will less of a white space which allows you to put more things on the screen. This allows more power to Admin’s.
With Display Density Settings, a user can make the screens visibility more Compact or make it more Comfy, as per the convenience.
With the Compact setting, a user can add almost 30% more fields to the screen by removing more white space between page elements and shifting the labels to the left of fields.
With the Comfy setting, which is similar to the previous versions of Lightning Experience, has labels on the top of fields and more space between page elements.
The feature is applicable to Lightning experience in all the editions, but is not introduced to Communities or the Salesforce Mobile App, yet.
More features introduced in Winter ’19 are continued here.
