Salesforce Summer ‘22 Release Date + Preview Information

Share this article...

It might still be Winter for a lot of us, but the Salesforce Summer ’22 release is right around the corner.

There are many agenda items you need to prepare for with each release, but at this stage, there are only a couple of things you need to know: how to prepare your sandbox, and when your instance gets upgraded.

Salesforce Summer ’22 Release Date

The first thing you should be aware of is when your production instance will be upgraded to the Salesforce Summer ’22 release. It’s important that you test all your main use cases in your Org before this date to ensure that everything continues to work. Although Salesforce releases rarely have any major bugs, it’s important that these checks are carried out.

The Release Date for Summer ’22 will depend on your instance of Salesforce, but the main release weekends are on…

  • May 21st 2022
  • June 4th 2022
  • June 11th 2022

If you already know the instance your production Org is located on, you can head over to Salesforce Trust, click on your instance name, and hit “Maintenance”. This will show you the date of the Salesforce Summer ’22 release hitting your Org.

If you don’t know your instance, the quickest way to find out is to head to company information within Setup in your Salesforce.

Summer ’22 Sandbox Preview Information

The second thing you should be aware of is how and when your Sandbox is going to be upgraded. This is extremely important as this is the first opportunity you will get to test your system on the new release. You can sign up for a pre-release Org, but these, of course, will not have any of your configurations.

Salesforce has two release windows for Sandboxes, which depends on whether your sandbox is a “Preview” instance or “Non-Preview Instance”. Stay tuned for more information on Sandbox Preview, but it looks like most Sandboxes will be upgraded on May 7th 2022.

Summer ’22 Pre-Release Org

As mentioned above, pre-release Orgs are a great way to get familiar with the new release before it hits your Sandboxes.

Summer ’22 Pre-Release Orgs will be available on April 21st, sign up here.

Summer ’22 Release Notes

Although the dates mentioned are some of the most important of the Salesforce release cycle, the most anticipated date is for the Salesforce Release Notes. This is the first glimpse of the features and upgrades that are being applied across the Salesforce suite of products. Release Notes are available over at Salesforce Help.

We will post the link as soon as it is available, but in the meantime, check out the features that were launched last release:

  1. Its worth point out the pre-release dates are much closer than normal to Sandbox Preview and teams will have about half the usual time to verify their developments before Sandbox upgrades and 1 week less than normal to digest the no doubt voluminous release notes.

    For those fortunate to have permanent GS0 access then I recommend checking for updates daily from the 18th April as traditionally it’s available a little sooner than the sign up page.

  2. Hi,

    I learned that SF is applying patches Summer ’22 Patch 5.3 across all impacted instances, which seems to solve all timeout issues. Can you please help me with when will this patch be applied on CS59?
