I am trying to create a sandbox from trial org but I am not able to get the sandbox option as mentioned in the document

To create a new sandbox: From Setup, click Sandboxes or Data Management | Sandboxes. Click New Sandbox. Enter a name and description for the sandbox.

I am the system admin of the org any missing configuration?

    Is sandboxes entirely missing from your setup menu, or are there no available sandboxes to create ? – Samuel De Rycke Dec 30 '13 at 8:02
  • Is it possible at all in trial? – Andrii Muzychuk Dec 30 '13 at 8:21

In looking at that Managing Sandboxes help page, there are a few possible causes:

  1. Are you in production? You can only see the Sandboxes if you are logged into production.
  2. Do you have one of the following editions: Enterprise, Performance, Unlimited, and Database.com Editions? Sandboxes are only available for those editions. For example, if you have a Professional Edition trial then you won't have sandboxes.
  3. Do you have the “View Setup and Configuration” and “Modify All Permissions” User Permissions?

    Is the edition of your org one of the ones I have listed in point #2 in my answer? Is it possible you have a trial of an edition that doesn't support sandboxes (e.g., Professional)? If you actually have a Developer Edition as opposed to a trial org, you definitely will not have the Sandbox option. – Peter Knolle Dec 30 '13 at 9:31
