How to create Lightning Page Tabs in Salesforce

Lightning Page Tabs

Lightning Page tabs enable you to include Lightning Pages in Lightning Experience and the Salesforce mobile app. To include a Lightning app page in the Salesforce mobile apps or in a Lightning app, you must first create a custom tab for it.

The first time a user activates an app page in the Lightning App Builder, a tab for the page is automatically created as part of the activation process. However, users can also manually create a tab for the page in Setup before activating it. Custom tabs can only be created for App Page types of Lightning pages.
