Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central: April 2019 Release Notes are Now Available

Email | Print

The much-awaited April 2019 release notes for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central are here! Last week, Microsoft published the release notes for all the Dynamics 365 applications (yes, all!) and Power platform, unveiling all the new features that will be released between April and September of this year. For those who don’t know, Microsoft plans to update Dynamics 365 twice a year going forward, in April and again in October.

The April 2019 release of new Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central enhancements is geared towards improvements to the user productivity. It will now deliver a more personalized experience – users can personalize the action bar on every page, navigation bar on role centers, quick entry fields, etc. The enablement of more keyboard-centric scenarios and features – such as document focus mode; work date indicator; and the ability to save personalized list filters - will make users’ lives easier and help them to stay focused. This release also addresses and incorporates feature feedback received from users (autosave indicator, filters in Excel reports, and much more).

You can view the full list of features and enhancements in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central here.

Power Platform users (Power BI, Microsoft Flow, Power Apps and the Common Data Service users) will benefit from this release too. Mary Jo Foley summarizes these benefits aptly in this ZDNet article titled “Microsoft's Dynamics 365 April '19 Update: What's New.

“PowerApps users are getting incremental platform and tooling updates in the April '19 release. A common unified interface will become the default experience for CDS for Apps with this release. Flow also gets a bunch of incremental new features, including integration with Microsoft Learn, OneDrive for consumers and tighter integration with Teams. Power BI is getting unified access to data between it and Azure Data Lake Storage and better self-service data-preparation functionality. A connector for LinkedIn Sales Navigator and Power BI Desktop is coming in June in public preview form.”


For those of you who are interested in validating these new updates before they are rolled out/ deployed in production, Microsoft will be making the previews available for some of the features in February 2019. It will be available for production deployment to all the users on April 5, 2019. You can view the release calendar here.
