Filed under: Data Migration — Alena Semeshko @ 5:36 am

All the while it seemed like 2008 just started…until today, when I looked through’s official blog. It turns out the Winter ‘09 release is just around the corner!

In a week - Sandbox Upgrade Window will start on September 16th, 2008 and last through October 11th, 2008.

See the official Salesforce blog to find out how you can participate in the Winter ‘09 Sandbox Preview.


  1. Any idea what portion of saleforce administrators use the sandbox feature? It seems that this should be nearly automatic for all users given the nature of hosted software and the fact that it’s not an option to accept the new release - it simply happens. Having an early look can help mitigate surprises with each user community.

  2. Ian,
    I completely agree, sandbox is a great way of ensuring your plan won’t fail before actually going through with it and yes, it would be only silly not to take advantage of a tool like that. Unfortunately, I don’t have the numbers, but I’d say it’s a complete majority.
