Deprecation Roadmap | Last Updated November 30, 2021

Interested in learning about our new features? Subscribe to our Release Notes here!

To ensure we provide our customers with the best possible experience, we periodically evaluate the usage and effectiveness of existing product features and determine which ones should be deprecated so that we can invest our engineering and support resources on the really valuable and often used features. To make the deprecation process a smooth one, we publish a deprecation schedule on the Socrata Knowledge Base to provide advanced notice and help you plan if you’re impacted by the changes.
