Important Things to Note 

If you know what instance your org is (you can check this by clicking on your company info in Setup or checking your salesforce URL), you can head over to Salesforce Trust and select your org & Maintenance and check when the release will hit your org. Make sure to check all your use cases before the update hits your Org. 

Take a good look through the release notes when they come out to check what updates will make a difference to your org. You can access the release notes here once they are released


Refresh your sandbox by Jan 8/9. This is the deadline to refresh your sandbox in order to get early access to Spring ’21 features in one of your sandboxes.

You will be able to watch the release readiness live here.

Listen to the Global release overviews here.
