Salesforce Spring ‘23 Release

What You Need To Know

For the Salesforce aficionados out there who were just getting comfortable with the Winter ‘23 Salesforce updates, prepare yourselves. Spring is coming. Yes indeed, the  Salesforce Spring ‘23 Release is just about ready to roll out, and there’s a lot to unpack. Who doesn’t love combing through a massive color coded excel PDF file detailing all 676 aspects of a tech company’s enhanced software rollout? Fortunately, Bitwise Industries is here to help. As the premier Salesforce solution provider in the Central Valley, we’re excited to share these updates and help your business continue to efficiently leverage digital solutions.

Supported Browsers and Devices

Salesforce software is one of the most powerful customer relationship management (CRM) tools on the planet. Their automated CRM software allows your businesses to seamlessly interact with customers, and collect and organize data to effectively communicate. Since 2016, Salesforce Lightning, or Lightning for short, has been the operating system of choice for users due to its modern, user-friendly and customizable interface that can now be accessed through more web browsers, as well as the Salesforce mobile application. Lightning is not supported on Microsoft’s Internet Explorer or Microsoft Edge (Non Chromium) web browsers, so it’s a good practice for organizations to frequently update their browsers to allow for more compatibility to run complex data storing softwares like Lightning. Older browsers aren’t guaranteed to support all of the new features included in the spring update. Learn more about supported browsers

New Administrator Tools

“I really love building complex automations. Since the beginning of Bitwise, the Salesforce team has been making automations for internal use, using Workflow rules and Process builder. Both of which will be retiring soon. In the new release, Salesforce has upgraded the “Migrate to Flow Tool” to include Processes from Process builder. Flows can do everything a Process can do and a lot more, so this new function will make it easier for us to update our dozens of Processes without too much stress.”

Marcel Haynes (He/Him) – Salesforce Administrator, Bitwise Industries

The new Migrate To Flow Tool is there to help your Salesforce Administrators make the transition to Flow Builder, so your business will be able to streamline processes by implementing this new resource to convert Process Builder tasks into flows, in combination with an organization’s previously defined workflow rules. 

Workflow is one of those words that you often hear in corporate settings. But in case  you’re wondering, it’s defined as a series of activities needed to complete a task relevant to the workplace. An automated workflow means that those tasks are being completed automatically with the help of A.I. and pre-programmed parameters, also known as workflow rules.

The Spring ‘23 release updates will be applicable for Lightning and Salesforce Classic throughout all customized user softwares including Essentials, Professional, Enterprise, Performance, Unlimited, and Developer editions, and only supports record-triggered processes. Custom events and custom invocable type processes are not supported. As well as processes containing scheduled actions like metadata types, and field traversals. Learn more about the Migrate to Flow Tool.

Supported Actions Include:

  • Record update
  • Record create
  • Invoke flow
  • Invoke Apex
  • Email alert
