Although many of us are enjoying the changing leaves and cooler weather of autumn, it’s already time to start preparing for the Salesforce Spring ’23 release that is quickly approaching. Let’s talk about the important dates and preview information you’ll need to know for this release.
Get Ready for the Release!
Spring ’23 Pre-Release Org
Spring ’23 Pre-Release Orgs are predicted to be available on December 15. Pre-release orgs are a great way to test the new release features in a stand-alone environment before they’re rolled out into your sandbox and production orgs. If you already had a pre-release org for Winter ’23, you can log back into that one to access your Spring ’23 pre-release org.
Spring ’23 Release Notes
The official release notes are probably the most highly anticipated date of each release. These offer us our first in-depth look into each new feature that will be implemented across Salesforce once the release goes live. They are predicted to become available on December 21.
You can also find updates, ask questions, and discuss your favorite features in the Release Readiness Trailblazer Community Group.
Spring ’23 Sandbox Preview
The Sandbox preview is a great way to test out the new features as they pertain to your unique configurations within your own Salesforce org, without affecting your live environment. Use the Salesforce Sandbox Preview Guide to determine if you want to upgrade your Sandbox or keep it on Winter ’23 until Spring ’23 officially releases.
Most Sandboxes will be updated on January 7.
Spring Winter ’23 Release Dates
The most important thing to do is make sure you’re aware of when your Salesforce instance is going to be upgraded to Spring ’23. Be sure to test everything before the release goes live to ensure everything still works properly and you know how to navigate the new features and upgrades. Be sure to check out the Release Resources page to help prepare for the new updates!
The three main release weekends for Spring ’23 are:
- January 14, 2023
- February 4, 2023
- February 11, 2023
You can find your Salesforce instance by going to company information in Setup within Salesforce. To find your release date, go to Salesforce Trust, select your instance name, and click on the “Maintenance” tab. This will show you the date that your org will be upgraded to Spring ’23.
