The Developers Speak is a video series featuring certified Salesforce consultants at Digital Mass. They come to you twice a month to help bridge the gap between business problems and technical solutions.
On this episode, Andrew will be talking about LWC quick actions.
Lightning web components, generally speaking, benefit from increased efficiency and standardization with modern web practices and standards. LWC's have always been Salesforces' intended direction in terms of new componentry. 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.
LWC quick actions are currently only supported for your record pages. 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, but now's a good time to really get accustomed to how to build these components and learn how to transition from Aura. If you have exclusively designated record-based quick actions that sit on that aura framework, definitely get accustomed to transitioning those over. You'll really benefit from that increased performance and the standardization that comes with fully adopting lightning web components.

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!
