What’s New in Dynamics 365 Business Central 2020 Release Wave 1?

March 22, 2020 Tammy Radecke

The 2020 release wave 1 for D365 Business Central planned for April 2020 has some great new features I’m excited to share with you. As a Dynamics 365 Business Central user, this is one of your perks—automatic updates and enhancements. Microsoft continues to invest heavily in D365 BC, which means that as solutions experts we always enjoy helping you through this new functionality.

 

Microsoft gets ideas for improvements both from developers and from listening to user requests and feedback. A recent favorite from 2019 release wave 2 is the ability to select default purchasing codes on an item card. This highly requested functionality has helped our customers streamline their workflows and daily processes.

So what’s new in the April 2020 release wave 1 for Business Central? Here is a list of features we are especially looking forward to here at Western Computer.

 

1. Improved efficiency and capabilities for saved views
This new functionality improves upon the process of saving filters as a view to more easily access and use data.

 

2. Workspace optimization with the ability to collapse and expand document lines
On documents such as sales orders and purchase orders, users will have the option to collapse the document lines section and gain more space to view other information on the page.

 

3. Easier customization of user profiles
User profiles and user-specific interfaces will have the option to be customized in a sandbox environment to be imported into a production environment.

 

4. Predefine specific printers and print properties
Users will be able to select and configure specific printers or print properties per individual user, task, or report.

 

5. Attach documents as PDF files
Documents will be attachable as PDFs on page views (i.e. filtered lists) as well as reports.

 

6. Streamline recurring sales orders and purchase orders
It will be possible to auto-insert recurring sales orders and purchase orders to streamline these processes.
