Who has time to read the 500+ pages of release notes or sit through all the Release Readiness webinars? I certainly don't! Instead I want a quick summary of the biggest things getting released and how I need to prepare my Org and Users. If you're of the same mindset, then this new Social Hour is for you :)
Starting with Winter '20, a casual multi-group event will be held around each of the core releases (3x a year) to discuss the exciting changes coming and what you might need to do to enable them or prepare your user base. We will focus on the top items within each cloud and call special attention to the features that require activation (or some level of effort) to make use of. These 'socials' will be more casual than the standard User Group meetings and will offer 15-20 minutes of content, with the rest of the time open to discuss particular features with the spattering of User Group Leaders, certified professionals, and consulting resources in attendance. You'll also be able to enjoy some delicious appetizers and a few drinks while you're at it!
So RSVP today and get ready for all the great stuff coming in Winter '20!
***If you weren't aware, most of the North American instances of Salesforce will be refreshed on either 10/4 or 10/11. You can check out the maintenance calendar and find your specific instance, and it's release window, here.
