Winter 17 Release - Governor Limit Increases You Should Know

Governor Limit Increases in SFDC Winter 17 Release

These updates require no action and are automatically granted in the release. Load more records, relate more objects in formulas, and generally increase the scale of your solutions without doing anything!

1. Process Twice as Many Records with Bulk API

You know what’s better than being able to upload 5,000 batches a day with Bulk API? If you guessed, “being able to upload 10,000 batches a day,” you’re right! The daily batch limit has been increased to 10,000 for all orgs.

2. Create More Spanning Relationships Per Object in Formulas

Sometimes you want more! We’ve increased the number of unique relationships per object from 10 to 15. This increase is available in both Lightning Experience and Salesforce Classic.

3. Daily Org Limits for Sending Emails with the API Have Increased

Using the Salesforce API or Apex, you can now send single emails to 5,000 external email addresses per day based on Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). You can also send mass email to 5,000 external email addresses per day per org. The maximum number of external email addresses is no longer based on your Salesforce edition. You can use your remaining daily balance of external email addresses in as many mass emails as you’d like, regardless of your edition. This feature is available in both Lightning Experience and Salesforce Classic.

4. Get More Days to Schedule Your Quick Deployments

The time window to quick-deploy your validations has expanded from 4 days to 10 days. This larger time window provides you more flexibility for scheduling your quick deployment and helps minimize the impact on your org.

5. Higher Limits for Standard Picklists

Standard, multi-select picklists can be as detailed as you need them to be with a new limit of 255 characters per entry. This feature is available in both Lightning Experience and Salesforce Classic.

6. Make More API Calls and Get Fewer Headaches When Calculating API Limits

We simplified the API request limit calculation and gave everyone more calls per 24-hour period. For Enterprise Edition, Unlimited Edition, Performance Edition, and Professional Edition with API access enabled, the old calculation was based on your number of licenses and the license types, with a guaranteed minimum of 15,000 calls per 24-hour period. We scrapped the minimum and gave everyone 15,000 more calls. The calculation for Developer Edition orgs and sandboxes remains the same.
