In Richmond, Virginia – the heat of 90 degree weather is top of mind for everyone. However, it is that time of year where we get to preview the Winter ’19 release. For Sandbox customers, you get the opportunity for early access to test out new features.
The Sandbox Preview for Winter ‘19 begins September 7, 2018. If you would like to take part in the early preview, make sure to activate your sandbox before September 7.
Sandbox Instances are split up in two groups – Preview and Non-Preview. Preview Instances are instances which get upgraded to the newer version of Salesforce before Production Instances (e.g. NA2, EU1, AP0) and Non-Preview Instances are upgraded towards the end of a Major Release along with the majority of Production Instances. For the Winter ‘19 Release, the Preview Instances will be upgraded to Winter ‘19 on September 7 and September 8, 2018. Non-Preview Instances will be upgraded to Winter ‘19 on October 12 and October 13, 2018.
