Back in February 2016, Salesforce announced changes in their edition pricing. In addition to announcing their prices increasing by 15% to 20%, new features are being added to each edition. These new additions have been branded as “Lightning Editions.” This does not mean you are required to use the new Lightning Experience UI. A Lightning Edition is simply the branded name being used to differentiate the current edition names and what’s new. Read below for the review and differences between the editions:
Lightning Edition Feature Changes
|Lightning Professional||Lightning Enterprise||Lightning Unlimited|
|Single Salesforce Console App
Process Builder (5 Process per org)
Custom Profiles & Page Layouts (2 profiles)
3 Record Types per Object
Unlimited Apps & Tabs
10 Developer Sandboxes
|Unlimited Salesforce Console Apps
25 Developer Sandboxes
|Live Agent Web Chat
100 Developer Sandboxes
Existing customers will receive these improvements on a roll out schedule. As of 4/29/16, the roll out date for the majority of customers will be May 17, 2016. You can view the full roll out schedule here: http://sforce.co/1XYvRxl
Existing customers will not lose any of their current functionality. New customers signing up after the Lightning Edition release will experience some changes depending upon if they are using Sales Cloud or Service Cloud Licenses. These changes are fairly minor and do not impact “core” functionality. For example, new customers who purchase only Service Cloud Licenses will have access to Opportunities, but not Quotes.
We’ll take a deeper dive for each edition on what the possible impact will be for you. Stay tuned for additional posts.
