Microsoft has released their plans for the 2020 Wave 1 release coming in April, you can see the full plan here.

As always, the plan covers the whole Dynamics 365 suite and so includes Customer Engagement, Finance and Operations and the one I’m most interested in – Business Central.

Application enhancements 

  • Auto-insert recurring sales and purchase lines when creating a new document.
  • Enhancements to sending customer and vendor documents, so that specific contact can be used for specific documents.
  • Direct Debits are now linked to service orders and contacts.
  • Receive more items than the quantity ordered.
  • Improvements to bank reconciliation.

Modern Client enhancements

  • Disable export to Excel as a user permission.
  • Non-interactive printing.
  • Enhanced mobile accessibility when switching orientation.
  • Improved load times.
  • Integrations with the common data service.

You can see details of the Dynamics 365 plan here.

And the Business Central specific information here.

Just be mindful that not all the new functionality will be released in April but will be gradually released between April and September.

These new updates may seem small, but together they make a significant impact on the way users work. If you’re using Business Central in the cloud you don’t need to do anything – as the updates will happen automatically. If you’re still using Microsoft Dynamics NAV, you may want to consider upgrading – so you too can take advantage of the latest and greatest technology.
