Dynamics 365 Business Central
What’s New and Planned
This topic lists features that are planned to release from October 2019 through March 2020.
We will continue to enhance the application through our focus on performance in the most used areas. The Business Central Ideas site continues to be a source for application enhancements.
|Cancel issued reminders and finance charge memos|
|Carry line descriptions to general ledger entries when posting|
|Write larger item cross-reference numbers|
Application lifecycle management
Once partners have customers live on Business Central, there is an immediate need to be able to manage the lifecycle of the customer, the solution, provide support, manage updates, testing, and so on. We will continue our investment in expanding the scope of the tools available to partners.
Migrations to Business Central online
This area details our migrations to Business Central online roadmap.
|Enhancements for customer migration tools|
We accelerate our investment in speed and productivity features for the modern browser experience, achieving a major milestone in its transformation into a world-class desktop experience for new and expert users alike.
Modern developer tools
For the 2019 release wave 2, Business Central retires the legacy development tool, C/SIDE, and development language, C/AL, replacing them with a modern solution based on Visual Studio Code, Azure DevOps, and an AL language that supports an extension-based approach to customization.
Empower ISV acceleration
We will focus on empowering ISV acceleration in developing new solutions, moving IP from the source code customization model to Business Central. The ecosystem is extremely broad, but a small concentrated set of ISVs drive the majority of the sales and usage. We will focus on enabling those core ISVs.
|Design for extensibility|
Laser focus on performance, reliability, supportability and security is essential to ensure that service quality remains ahead of the growth in service usage. Accessibility, already in a strong position, must be preserved.
