What do you need to pay attention to (a little bit of Tutorial)

  • 1. Consider several things: How do you prepare your sandbox and When will your instance be upgraded?    
  • 2. Do not forget to test the key use cases of your Salesforce org before the release dates. Ensure that everything works as it is the way it’s supposed to. 
  • 3. If you know the instance your production org is located on, go to the Salesforce Trust. Click the instance name, click “Maintenance” and you will see the date of the release hitting your Salesforce org. If you don’t, head to “Company Information” within “Setup” in your Salesforce.  
  • 4. Keep tracking the updates of your sandbox. It will be the first touch to test your system on the upcoming Salesforce release.  
  • 5. You can sign up for a pre-release org. It’s an excellent option to get familiar with the new Salesforce release before it goes to your sandbox. But there will be not any of your org configurations.
