Salesforce Spring '19: Upcoming Dates




Field History Data Retention Now Enforced

Starting with Salesforce Spring '19 release, Salesforce will enforce the 18-month retention policy and begin the process of removing field history data beyond 24 months.  If you have data beyond 24 months that you would like to retain, you should plan on taking action well before the Salesforce Spring '19 release.


See Page 7 (as well as our Blog Post: Salesforce: Retention Limit for Field History Data is now Enforced!).
