Switch between Lightning Experience and Salesforce Classic - stay on same record

Lightning Experience

It only takes a click of a button to switch between Lightning Experience and Salesforce Classic - but every time you switch, it takes you to the home page and you have to re-find the record or page you were working on.

Understood that there are some pages that are exclusive to one or the other interface - if that's the case, when you switch you should go to the closest thing (eg when switching from opportunity board in LE you should go to Opportunities tab page in SC)

However, when it's exactly the same record, you should be taken directly to the same record in the other interface. Understood that there's a different URL for each, but the record ID is the same.

    Hi all - the team is exploring the user experience and technical aspects to understand how much effort it would take to make this possible. If that analysis proves that this can be implemented without detracting too much from some other higher priority items, it's something that could be delivered in the Summer '20 release. We'll update this idea with more information (likely in late calendar year 2019 / early 2020) after we finish the explorations.
