Enabling Enhanced Domains: What this means for you

Salesforce regularly releases new features and enhancements that are specifically designed to help non-profit organisations better manage their operations, such as improvements to fundraising and donor management.

These releases typically happen three times per year, in the spring, summer, and winter. Each release is referred to by the year and the season.

Enable Enhanced Domains

Why is this happening?

Enhanced domains meet the latest browser requirements. With enhanced domains, all URLs across your org contain your company-specific My Domain name, including URLs for your Experience Cloud sites, Salesforce Sites, Visualforce pages, and content files.

This feature changes domain suffixes (the part after the My Domain name) to meet the latest security standards. My Domain URLs are easier for users to remember and don’t change when your org is moved to another Salesforce instance.

What does this mean for you?

Time is running out so if you have not had the time to investigate the impact that this change might have on your Salesforce Org, here are some tips:

  • Review Visual Force Pages, Experience Cloud Sites, and Apex Triggers for buttons and quick actions

  • Review all third party integrations as these will need to be updated manually

  • Review Single Sign on

  • Test in Sandbox!

There are several factors to consider - the age of your Salesforce Org, and the number of integrations and/or customisations.
