Business value

Modern Solution Explorer offers several key benefits over the classic experience, including multiple new features, building and managing customizations under one umbrella, inline help when you need it, and a more performant and usable interface.

Feature details

Makers are more productive and no longer need to switch between solution interfaces. Along with many new solution capabilities such as canvas apps, flows, custom connectors, and environment variables, all the familiar capabilities from classic Solution Explorer are now available within the new experience. If you still need to access classic Solution Explorer, simply select Switch to classic.

Other improvements include:

  • Tailored interface for advanced users.
  • Updated import/export experiences with the ability to configure environment variables.
  • Solution actions panel to support healthy application lifecycle management (ALM).
  • Better views for managing plug-ins.
