    Does Salesforce support data migration?

    Yes, Salesforce supports data migration, and it provides various tools and resources to facilitate the process. Salesforce offers features and functionalities to import, export, and manipulate data. Some of the key tools and methods Salesforce provides for data migration include Data Import Wizard, Data Loader, Workbench.

    How do I transfer data from Salesforce?

    There are tons of tools you can use for data migration in Salesforce but most of Salesforce admins do it with the help of ETL data migration tools, importing through Data Loader, or custom-built apps using the Bulk API. You can also use the Salesforce Data Import Wizard to import data for many standard Salesforce objects (Accounts, Contacts, Leads, Solutions, Campaign Members, and Person Accounts), as well as import data for custom objects.

    If you migrate data with Data Loader:

    1. Download and install Data Loader from the Salesforce Setup menu.
    2. Launch Data Loader and log in with your Salesforce credentials.
    3. Select an operation (insert, update, upsert, delete, or hard delete).
    4. Choose the CSV file containing your data.
    5. Map the CSV file columns to Salesforce fields.
    6. Run the operation to transfer the data.

    It’s important to carefully plan and prepare your data before initiating the transfer, and always consider making a backup before performing any data migration to avoid accidental data loss or corruption.

    What is the recommended order for data migration in Salesforce?

    • Understand Requirements. Clearly define and understand the data migration requirements. Identify what data needs to be migrated, including objects, fields, and relationships.
    • Schema Design. Design or review your Salesforce schema (objects, fields, and relationships).
    • Import Users and Roles. If your migration involves user data, it’s often a good idea to start with importing users and roles.
    • Reference Data. Load reference data such as picklist values, record types, and any other data that is referenced by other records.
    • Migrate Data. During this stage you’ll handle various tasks, starting with extraction, data mapping and loading into Salesforce. Please, note, it’s important to import object data in a particular order to maintain record relationships. You will need to match and replace old record Ids in your import files with the newly created data’s record Ids from within your target Salesforce org to properly prepare relational data for import.
    • Attachments and Files. Migrate attachments and files associated with records.
    • Workflows and Automation. After migrating data, set up and activate workflows, processes, and automation that rely on the migrated data.
    • Testing and validation. Perform thorough testing to ensure data integrity, accuracy, and that all functionalities are working as expected. Validate the migrated data with stakeholders to confirm that it meets business requirements.
    • Go-Live. Plan and execute the go-live process.
    • Post-Migration Support. Provide support and address any issues that may arise post-migration.
