Removing the View Media Library VisualForce Page
The View Media Library VisualForce page will be removed from all orgs with the 22R2 release. Users can access the CLM media library directly in the Veeva CRM Desktop app.
Supporting Engage Sandbox Releases in 22R1.3
Beginning with the 22R1.3 Sandbox Release, currently scheduled for June 23, 2022, Engage will have a sandbox available for testing before production releases. This enables admins to test upcoming Engage functionality in their sandbox orgs before deployment to production.
To use the new Engage Sandbox after the 22R1.3 Sandbox Release, create a support ticket with the list of CRM sandbox orgs to link to the Engage Sandbox. Admins can assign Engage licenses to test users once the sandbox org is linked to the Engage Sandbox.
Previously created meetings and groups are no longer available once the org is linked to the Engage Sandbox. Existing meetings must be rescheduled and created groups must be recreated.
Approved Email On Lightning
The 22R2 release will update Approved Email to include the Lightning interface. These updates are not planned to affect the current functionality and capabilities of Approved Email. The Lightning interface for Approved Email will be enabled by default for both the Browser Classic and Lightning platforms.
New Date for the 22R3.0 Major Release
The 22R3.0 major release is rescheduled to December 8, 2022 (previously December 15, 2022). To provide a three-week sandbox period, the 22R3.0 sandbox release is rescheduled to November 17, 2022. Additionally, the 22R2.3 minor release is canceled to support rescheduling the 22R3.0 major release. For a full list of the release dates for 2022, see About CRM Releases.
