Happy Valentine's Day! Wow, my second blog post today. I should get the rest of the day off or something! No? Back to work for me? All right...here's Salesforce's February 2019 Tech Update!
Salesforce for iOS and Android v. 18.0 Available
Formally known as Salseforce1, Salesforce for iOS and Android has an update.
See page 6 for details.
Field History Data Retention Now Enforced
We did a blog post on this one (Salesforce: Retention Limit for Field History Data is now Enforced!) however, be aware, that starting with Salesforce Spring '19, 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, please take action well before Spring '19 release!
Your two options are:
Option 1: Purchase Field Audit Trail
Option 2: Download the data via Data Loader and add it to a custom big object (or retain elsewhere)
Details can be found in our blog post mentioned above as well as page 7.
