Salesforce receives significant upgrades several times every year, creating an exciting, dynamic, and ever-evolving environment for customers and those of us who love the system. This weekend is the final rollout for the Winter ’16 release, and among the new features is the incredible Lightning Experience (if you’ve not checked it out yet, do that now). If you’re in the Salesforce biz or your team uses Salesforce, getting an early look at what’s to come can be a huge benefit, and in this week’s installment of Dreamforce Tips, I’ve got a cool piece of advice you may not have been aware of.
Did you know that you can sign up for a free prerelease trial org ahead of every major Salesforce release? Let that sink in for a second. Free. Prerelease. If you work with Salesforce every day, getting a preview of new features can help in your decision-making process for upcoming projects, and can give developers and admins an opportunity to start finding their way around the new tools available. This great, free service is useful for everyone in the Salesforce ecosystem. Here’s the Winter ’16 prerelease (a bit dated now), and simply google “Free Salesforce Prerelease” for all future versions!
