You can extend and end sandboxes from the Sandboxes dashboard and from the Sandbox workspace.
To define a calendar event for a sandbox, see Create a Calendar Event for a Sandbox.
If required, you can extend an active sandbox.
To extend an active sandbox:
- In the sandbox workspace, in the toolbar or Sandbox menu, click Extend. You can also extend a sandbox from the more info window of the sandbox in the Sandboxes dashboard.
- In the Extend Sandbox window enter the additional duration required for the sandbox.
Note: If a max duration was set for the sandbox or the user, the user will not be able to extend the sandbox duration beyond this setting. If a maximum duration set for both the user and the sandbox, the shorter duration prevails. System administrators can extend any sandbox with no restriction..
Ending a sandbox
