I received an email this morning regarding some major changes announced for #Salesforce CPQ. Previously, all package updates were to be manually downloaded from their page (and there were a LOT of them). Starting with the Summer 18 release, Salesforce CPQ will begin the rollout.
This is a good….and bad thing. As all CPQ admins know, there’s a lot of moving parts, and potentially a lot of code depending how customized you needed your configuration. Manual updates give admins the cushion of making any necessary changes to take the new updates, whereas if it comes automatically, you’re up against the clock.
I personally think it will be great in the long run, as I personally prefer automatic updates as to manual. Info on the changes to Salesforce CPQ below:
