Salesforce Summer ’23 Release Date

Mark your calendars! The Summer ’23 Release for Salesforce will soon be here, and it’s essential to know when your production environment will be upgraded. However, it’s just as important to be aware of when your sandbox will receive the update, as this is where you’ll conduct tests to ensure the new release won’t interfere with your existing implementation. The timing of the Summer ’23 Release will vary depending on your Salesforce instance, with the main release weekends occurring on:

  • May 6, 2023
  • June 3, 2023
  • June 10, 2023

It’s important to keep in mind that the exact dates may vary based on your location and Salesforce instance.

To find out when your organization will be upgraded to the Salesforce Summer ’23 Release, you can visit Salesforce Trust, click on your instance name, and select “Maintenance.” This will display the date for when the release will be implemented in your org. If you’re unsure about which instance you’re on, simply navigate to “company information” within “Setup” in your Salesforce account.

Summer ’23 Sandbox Preview Information

It’s also important to note when your sandbox will be upgraded, as this is where you’ll be able to test the new release before it’s implemented. Salesforce has two release windows for sandboxes, with most sandboxes being upgraded on May 5th and 6th, 2023.

Summer ’23 Pre-Release Org

For those who want to preview the new features before the official release, you can sign up for a Summer ’23 Pre-Release Org. If you already have a preview org, it has been upgraded with the latest release.
