The 2019 Spring edition of Salesforce releases has got some pretty sweet news to reveal. Salesforce is increasing its data storage limit for each ORG or account coming March as the newest upgradation to select editions. The increase is a mighty tenfold jump from the existing 1 GB of data storage. Its impact is really in the easement of eliminating other applications or storage spaces to keep all your emails and documents.
Providing 10 GB of storage space means a Salesforce account could hold between 1,000,000 to 1,500,000 emails compared to the earlier 100,000 to 150,000 emails. This is a revolutionary change for especially benefiting smaller customers with a small number of users that deal with a lot of accounts and contacts. Previously a Professional Edition org with 10 users received 1 GB because 10 users multiplied by 20 MB per user allotment is 200 MB. Reports released claims a Professional Edition org now with 10 users receives 10 GB + 200 MB.Email bodies and their related linked can be stored in Data Storage from which the content is fully searchable across the entire ORG.
Earlier for an extra 1GB of Data Storage Salesforce charged at a minimum of $1,200 per year which means that this release can save you up to $10,800. A penny saved is a penny earned!
Exasperating steps are taken to preserve much information like e-mails, and as time passes they just keep accumulating more and more. It could be inconvenient to store such data in an external platform, otherwise, you could keep everything within Salesforce. This release will enable them to store all emails and other customer interactions in the Activity section of Salesforce without worrying about running out of Data Storage. And now that Salesforce allows such vast storage, external Email integration applications like Ebsta that store email off-Salesforce will be challenged. You can get over issues like slow SFDC response times, lack of ownership of synced email data because it is stored in a third party cloud that gets cut off at the end of a subscription and lack of the ability to use stored email data when creating SFDC records, dashboards and/or ListViews.
These updates will start to be in use from late March to limited editions such as Lightning Experience, Salesforce Classic, and all versions of the Salesforce app in Contact Manager, Group, Essentials, Professional, Enterprise, Performance, and Unlimited editions. An amazing spring gift for this cherry blossom season for all Salesforce people out there – Salesforce keeps giving us reasons to celebrate!
