The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted businesses around the world. Major conferences have been cancelled, companies have shut down and even the 2020 Olympic Games have been postponed. In these unprecedented times, the tech industry also has to take steps to ensure the safety and well-being of their companies while continuing to provide top level service to customers.
Salesforce just announced that it will be postponing the Summer ’20 release date. The sandbox preview was previously scheduled for May 8, 2020 with the full production release following on June 5, 2020. The new sandbox preview date will be May 29-30, 2020 while the full production release date will be July 10, 2020. These changes affect all companies using Salesforce software. Developers should make note of the changes so they’re aware of when software will be updated.
Many businesses are finding it difficult to keep up with technological changes while also adjusting to the internal changes being made in response to the novel coronavirus. The decision was made in an effort for Salesforce to provide stability for its customers and make sure they have access to any necessary resources at the time of its launch to set them up for success.
Going into the summer, it’s important for companies to prepare their systems by testing the features before the upgrade to make sure everything still works. After the upgrade, conduct the same test to ensure customers are still having the best digital experience possible.
