Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central 2022 Wave 2 Plan Announced

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business CentralA few days Microsoft announced the plans for the 2022 Wave 2 version of Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central. The plan includes the priorities and areas of focus which are expected to start rolling out to production in October.

There are two documents available from Microsoft on what’s coming in 2022 Wave 2. The first is an overview of what’s new and planned, including areas of investment, and the second is the detail of what’s new and planned.

On the overview Microsoft break the updates down into several key areas:

  • Seamless service: No matter the industry type of a small or midsized business (SMB), business users expect a dependable service and platform that they can run their business on.

  • Administration: Business Central delivers a set of features for better and improved communication about the health of each environment.

  • Application: We will continue to improve the application to support integration with Shopify. The finance and supply chain capabilities in Business Central are improved with several optimizations and enhancements so that users can run their business processes more efficiently.

  • Better with Microsoft 365: We improve the efficiency of collaborative business processes in Microsoft Teams. Users can pin cards inside Teams, and delegated admins can now use the Excel add-in.

  • Country and regional: In 2022 release wave 2, Business Central is generally available in more countries and regions.

  • Onboarding: Organizations can get to productive usage faster because it’s easier to discover and install apps.

  • Development tools: We have moved entirely to Visual Studio Code where we continue to invest in areas that enhance the productivity for developers.

  • Power Platform: More efficient automation with Power Automate so that users can set up workflows for the specific needs of their organization.

The overview gives a gist of the upcoming changes, but you need to read the detail of what’s new to understand the changes.
