With Winter 17 Release many Governor Limits have Increased.“You didn't see that coming?”
1. Salesforce 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.
2. Increased 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. 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.
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.
