This post is part of the New Functionality In Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central 2023 Wave 2 series in which I am taking a look at the new functionality introduced in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central 2023 Wave 2.
The of the new functionality in the Service and platform section is Service-to-service apps and device license users can schedule tasks.
In typical commerce, point of sale, and warehousing scenarios, where there’s a high volume of transactions and workloads to be processed by service-to-service apps or device license users, the ability to schedule tasks and execute them in background sessions can greatly improve throughput and reduce risk of errors.
Enabled for: Users, automatically
Public Preview: –
General Availability: Oct 2023
Scheduling tasks has been enabled for app (S2S) and device license users since the updates 21.2 and 22.5, respectively. In situations that required processing many transactions and workloads—such as posting sales orders, printing receipts, and updating inventory—S2S apps and device license users can now increase throughput by parking these workloads as scheduled tasks that will be automatically and asynchronously run later in background sessions. In this way, they avoid waiting for the completion of these workloads and reduce the risk of errors, timeouts, and performance issues that may occur if processing these workloads synchronously.
