Re: Winter 2017 release pretty lackluster

Does anyone know when this will be rolled out to enterprise customers?  A schedule?

Re: Winter 2017 release pretty lackluster

During my MCE exam prep, the instructor said it gets rolled out when you renew your Marketo subscription. Not sure, but I'd guess a support request could result in an immediate switchover.

Re: Winter 2017 release pretty lackluster

Well, if that's really the case then this is less of a "Winter" release, and more of a "when we get to it" release. That would be disappointing, as it opens the possibility of this happening again for features that we'd actually want to have straight away!

I like the concept of the "when you get it" release. I feel that it probably covers the situation with many SAAS software vendors.

Thx for this one.

I think it goes to show how unexciting this winter release is given that most of the discussion here is around a topic that's not even part of the winter release!  As Greg mentioned, this was announced here back in December: Naming Convention Update

I just read the announcement - Release Notes: Winter '17 - Marketo Docs - Product Docs  - have to say, I am not impressed either.

Great that they are pushing the new products forward but what about the old staples everyone knows and loves.......when they are not driving us insane

Biggest thing I glean from this is that any Forms v1.0 need to be fully converted by August (supposed transition date) where they will automatically be transitioned to the new experience.

I just started seeing the Winter '17 release notes on the homepage of my instance today... Do you think they did a rollout and we just got updated?

Re: Winter 2017 release pretty lackluster

I have to agree here.  Now that these only happen four times a year, the expectation is that these would contain significant, innovative features/enhancements (ideally inspired from some of the most popular IDEAS submitted) or at least hit on some of the core missing features that have been highlighted in this thread: Just do it! Marketo so-called minor missing features.  Thanks Grégoire Michel

But then again, perhaps Marketo is saving some of this to announce at Summit.

And yes, Dory, these were pushed live this weekend.  Odd that you didn't receive an email from Cheryl a couple weeks ago (received on Feb. 22).

HI also have to agree on this one. I understand that there quite a few important projects going on though, so let's expect some good news in SFO.
