Salesforce Winter 17 is coming soon

Salesforce Winter '17 Sandbox Preview Instructions


The Salesforce Winter ‘17 release is quickly approaching and soon you'll be able to take advantage of exciting new features and functionality! If you are a Sandbox customer, you have the opportunity to get early access to Winter ‘17 in your Sandbox and test new customizations and features before your production organization is upgraded.

The Sandbox Preview window for Winter ‘17 is scheduled to begin September 9, 2016. If you would like your Sandbox organization to take part in the Winter ‘17 Preview, your Sandbox must be active on a preview instance by September 9, 2016 to take part in an overall instance upgrade.
Please read carefully and follow the instructions in the next section for specific information on how to handle each of your Sandboxes.  In most cases, you will not need to do anything because your Sandbox is already on a preview instance.  But you may need to take action by September 2, 2016 in order for your Sandbox to take part in the Winter ‘17 Preview


General Information about the Sandbox Service:
From the time your Production Instance (e.g. NA2, EU1, AP0) was upgraded, all Sandbox creation and refresh requests were routed to a Sandbox instance that will be upgraded for the preview.  We will continue to route these requests to Preview Sandbox Instances until September 2, 2016.
Starting September 3, 2016, all creation and refresh requests will be routed to non-preview instances until your production instance is upgraded to Winter ‘17.
You have from now until September 2, 2016 to decide if you would like your Sandbox to take part in the Winter ‘17 Preview. Follow the steps below for each Sandbox org that you have.

Note: If you have a full Sandbox, be mindful of the 29-day refresh policy and plan accordingly.
