Skip the Line – Upgrade to Istanbul Sooner

0 votes  

Starting with Istanbul, Express customers will have the opportunity to self-select an earlier timeframe for upgrading to the next release. Were you one of the hundreds of attendees on our latest release webinar? Perhaps you learned about a great new feature, and you want to upgrade as soon as possible. Now you can. By opting to upgrade in an earlier window, you’ll be one of the first Express customers to gain access to those new and exciting features. All Express instances must be upgraded within an allotted amount of time, of course, but the new self-service dashboard gives you the option to skip the line.

So when can I upgrade?

Express customers may begin upgrading their instances to Istanbul starting January 30.

Where can I access the self-service dashboard?
