Salesforce Winter ‘23 Release Date + Preview Information

Share this article...

Although for a lot of us, we are still in the middle of summer, the Salesforce Winter ’23 release is right around the corner!

There are many agenda items you need to prepare for with each release, but at this stage, there are only a couple of things you need to know: 1) how to prepare your sandbox, and 2) when your instance will get upgraded.

Salesforce Winter ’23 Release Date

The first thing you should be aware of is when your production instance will be upgraded to the Salesforce Winter ’23 release. It’s important that you test all the main use cases in your org before this date to ensure that everything continues to work. Although Salesforce releases rarely have any major bugs, it’s important that these checks are carried out.

The Release date for Winter ’23 will depend on your instance of Salesforce, but the main release weekends are on:

  • September 10, 2022
  • October 8, 2022
  • October 15, 2022

If you already know the instance your production org is located on, you can head over to Salesforce Trust, click on your instance name, and hit “Maintenance”. This will show you the date of the Salesforce Winter ’23 release hitting your org.

If you don’t know your instance, the quickest way to find out is to head to “company information” within “Setup” in your Salesforce.

Winter ’23 Sandbox Preview Information

The second thing you should be aware of is how (and when) your sandbox is going to be upgraded. This is extremely important as this is the first opportunity you will get to test your system on the new release. You can sign up for a pre-release org, but these, of course, will not have any of your configurations.

Salesforce has two release windows for sandboxes, which depends on whether your sandbox is a “Preview” instance or “Non-Preview Instance”. Stay tuned for more information on Sandbox Preview, but it looks like most sandboxes will be upgraded on August 27, 2022.

Winter ’23 Pre-Release Org

As mentioned above, pre-release orgs are a great way to get familiar with the new release before it hits your sandboxes.

Winter ’23 Pre-Release Orgs will be available on the August 11, 2022 – check back here for a link!

Winter ’23 Release Notes

Although the dates mentioned above are some of the most important of the Salesforce release cycle, the most anticipated date is for the official “Salesforce Release Notes”. This is the first glimpse of the features and upgrades that are being applied across the Salesforce suite of products. Release notes are available over at Salesforce Help.

We will post the link as soon as it is available, which is likely to be August 17.
