The SAP SuccessFactors quarterly release schedule is now available for 2018. Please make sure to mark your calendars for the dates below. SAP will continue to have one Preview release date and one Production release date. It allows you to benefit from (a minimum) an additional 30 days to test new features before the Production release date. For more detailed information about the transition to the Early Test Instance Release schedule, see this article. And to learn more about our release process in general, see this article.

We also strongly advise that you refrain from any “go-lives” or rolling out major changes immediately before or after a release is scheduled.

Stay tuned to AltaFlux’s social media channels near the release dates as we will be announcing and covering the major updates  in each quarterly release. And as always, don't hesitate to reach out with any questions!
