For the developers out there - LWC Quick Actions are here! Yes, you read that correctly!
The long-awaited lightning web component quick actions will officially be on the scene tomorrow, June 11th. We're excited to see the performance increase and more standardized patterns offered by LWCs.
Lightning web components, generally speaking, benefit from increased efficiency and standardization with modern web practices and standards. So lightning web components have always sort of been that Salesforce is intended direction at least in 2019 in terms of new componentry and certainly for new, Salesforce customers who are spinning up and doing their own development.
Lightning web component quick actions offer you all of the same functionality that you would get with an aura quick action with a couple of minor caveats at least as of right now, particularly these only apply and currently work and are supported for your record pages. So your lightning record pages are fully functional with quick actions, but as of right now, your home pages, your app pages, and your community pages still do have to sit on the old aura framework as of right now, but now's a good time to really get accustomed to how to build these components, how to transition from Aura to lightning web components if you have exclusively a sort of designated record based quick actions that sit on that aura framework, definitely get accustomed to transitioning those over and you'll really benefit from that increased performance and of course the standardization that comes with fully adopting lightning web components. Hopefully, we'll stay tuned and see some more documentation, some more communication from Salesforce on continued support for this tooling more to come though, and thank you for tuning in.

Outside of work, Andrew likes to spend his time playing D&D, camping, and burying himself in Youtube playlists exploring things ranging from emerging technologies to how to hand-sew your own socks - it’s pretty obvious he fits right in with the DM crew!
