Module 1 - Unit 4 - Turning On Release Features

Hi All - I’m struggling with the answer to the unit quiz for Product Releases.

Q: How can you get release features live in your Production account?

Based on the below reading, it looks like it’s by filling out the provided form.

If, after completing training on the new features and getting your hands dirty with them in Sandbox, you decide that it’s appropriate for you and the account you represent to have access to one, some, or all of them in your live environment, you can fill out this form here. Simply include the feature name, your Account ID, and the email you use to log in to Yext to get the feature turned on ahead of Early Access for the next Seasonal Release. This form will also be linked in a tooltip in units that cover new features.

But, I keep getting the answer wrong. Are there other ways to do this?

Hi Tanya,

Welcome to the Community! There are three stages for product release features, and a different way to access them at each stage.

  1. Monthly Release (only available to Hitchhikers) - Here’s where you’ll submit the form you mentioned above.
  2. Early Access (30 days before General Availability for Seasonal Releases) - Turn on under Account Settings.
  3. General Availability for Seasonal Releases - Available for everyone.

Hope that helps!

@Tanya_Meyers I am also struggling with finding the correct answer. I was under the same impression as you, regarding “filling out the form” as the correct response. Did you end up finding the correct combination of answers? I would love some guidance/explanation, if so. Thanks!

Hi Ilana,

You’re super close! Filling out the form is definitely right (#1 in Kristy’s outline above). There are two additional ways to access release features – one for Early Access (hint for a second answer!) and one for General Availability (hint for the third answer!).

Let us know if that helps steer you toward the answers or if you have other questions!

Best,
Alyssa
