For many businesses, Salesforce is the foundation for a powerful customer relationship management (CRM) solution. As a provider of Salesforce release management, Salesforce data backup and recovery, and Salesforce security solutions, we're often asked how a business can determine which version of Salesforce they are currently using.


For enterprise users of Salesforce, it is important to keep up to date with the latest version available, since each iteration of Salesforce typically introduces improved features and functionality. Knowing the current version of Salesforce in use can also be important to protect against any potential security risks that have been addressed with recent updates.


The first thing to do to find out which version of Salesforce a business is currently using, is to navigate to the correct “Quick Find” box. This is the search box located at the top right corner of the Salesforce screen, and it has a label showing the name of your company followed by a drop-down arrow at the end. Click on the arrow and select “Setup” from the drop-down menu.


Once in the Setup Menu, click on “System Overview”. This displays the current version of Salesforce you are running. The current version is indicated by a 4-digit number, such as “v45.1”. It is also important to note that Salesforce typically follows a 4-number versioning system for major releases, such as v45.1.


If you are not sure which release number you are running, look at the date listed in the “Release Date” field which is right below the version number. This will help you determine which version of Salesforce you are running, as well as provide an indication of when the version was released.


Once you have determined your current version of Salesforce, you can access the “Release Notes” by clicking on the version number. This opens a new window with more detailed information, including a list of features and functionality changes that have been made to Salesforce since the last major version. The Release Notes are updated with each new release, so businesses can find a comprehensive source of information on all the latest changes.


If you have determined that your Salesforce version is out of date, there are several steps that can be taken to update your system to the most current version. Consider using an experienced provider of Salesforce release management, data backup and recovery, and security solutions to ensure a smooth transition to the latest version of Salesforce. This will help you to take advantage of bug fixes and product enhancements, and will give you the peace of mind that your system is up-to-date and secure.
