For any veteran users of Salesforce, you have probably experienced the frustration of unexpected system maintenance, or performance degradation. It slows you down and all you can do is wait until Salesforce gets things fixed up. This is where the Salesforce Trust Status page comes in.
The status page tracks and displays upcoming maintenance or any current issues for Salesforce instances. Even better, you can have these events sent to you as Trust Notifications, which are near real-time email notifications that are triggered by updates to an instance’s availability on the Trust Status page. You can customize exactly which Salesforce Apps or Instances you are interested in, and Salesforce will do the rest.
