Winter 19 is certainly the focus this month for the MobileCaddy team. We first had eyes on it in one of our older pre-release orgs at the start of the second week of august. Registration opened for pre-release orgs on the 19th August.
At present we have no reported issues with the Winter 19 release in our daily pre-release test runs.
Sandbox preview instructions can be found here, for those wanting to get their sandboxes into a particular shape. The first sandboxes (preview) will roll-over on the September 7th/8th, with the rest updating on October 12th/13th.
Salesforce have put together a handy Google Calendar of all date, this can be accessed at https://sfdc.co/Winter19_calendar.
There are currently only 6 known issues listed against Winter 19 Patch 1.0
Occasionally there are critical updates (CRUCs) released by Salesforce that may impact the running of MobileCaddy applications. When these are seen we request that partners do not activate them prior to them being “green lighted” by us.
There is currently 1 critical updates of note, that we request are not activated until they’ve been through our QA processes.
- Remove Instance Names from URLs for Visualforce, Community Builder, Site.com Studio, and Content Files

Instance Refreshes and Org Migrations
From time-to-time, Salesforce undertakes a maintenance operation called an Instance Refresh. This is performed for various reason, but primarily to maintain good performance. As part of this your org may be moved to a new data center (note this is not an “Org Migration” – yes, silly naming, we know). More information on this, and steps that might be needed, can be found in this Salesforce Help Document.
