Sandbox refresh

When you start a sandbox refresh a copy of your installed applications will also be copied. This will include Campaign Monitor for Salesforce and there are some important points below to consider.

  • When strongley recommend not to connect any sandbox to your live Campaign Monitor account.
  • When a sandbox refresh happens we use a standard Salesforce process to disconnect Campaign Monitor from Salesforce.
  • You can also manually run a process before or after the sandbox refresh to clear out connection settings.

We don't recommend connecting a sandbox to your live Campaign Monitor account. Changes made in a sandbox can incorrectly update your Campaign Monitor data.

How to test in a sandbox

When you have our product in a sandbox we recommend connecting it to a test Campaign Monitor account. The best way to setup a test account is to create a new Campaign Monitor account that is pay-as-you-go. This will allow you to test features in a dedicated account.

If you have questions on which Campaign Monitor account to setup please contact Campaign Monitor directly - help.campaignmonitor.com
