Salesforce Winter '23 Release Dates & Preview Information

salesforce winter 23 release dates and preview information

Although many of us are still enjoying the warm summer weather, it's time to start preparing for the Salesforce Winter '23 release that is quickly approaching. Let's talk about the important dates and preview information you'll need to know for this release.

Winter '23 Pre-Release Org

Signing up for a pre-release org is the best way to check out the new release before it becomes available in your Sandbox. These become available on August 11. We will post a link here when signups are live.

Winter '23 Release Notes

The most highly anticipated date for each release is the official release notes. These offer us our first look into each new feature that will be implemented across Salesforce. They will be available on August 17 at Salesforce Help.

Winter '23 Sandbox Preview

The Sandbox preview is important as it is your opportunity to test your own system with the new features and upgrades. You can always sign up for the pre-release org to test out the new features, but the Sandbox preview will allow you to do this on your system with all your unique configurations. Salesforce has two release windows for Sandboxes, but most will be upgraded beginning on August 26.

It's important to make sure you're aware of when your Salesforce instance is going to be upgraded to the new release. Make sure you test everything in your org before the release goes live to ensure everything still works properly and you know how to navigate the new features and upgrades. 

The three main release weekends for Winter '23 are:

  • September 9, 2022
  • October 7, 2022
  • October 14, 2022


You can find your Salesforce instance by going to company information in Setup within Salesforce. To find your release date, go to Salesforce Trust, select your instance name, and click on the "Maintenance" tab. This will show you the date that your org will be upgraded to Winter '23.
