Microsoft just launched the April ’19 versions of its business solutions – including Dynamics 365 Business Central.
In addition to some previously announced new features that make working with the software easier and more productive, the April release also includes an optimization of performance, stability and security. Furthermore, Microsoft is concentrating on the development, cloud and update capability of the ERP system in the new version. The possibility of designing the user interface in the Web Client has been expanded as well as the functionality in the new development environment Visual Studio Code.
No more Windows Client in autumn
With the upcoming October version, the classic development environment (C/SIDE) and the Windows Client will finally be completely abolished – the April ’19 version will thus be the last release with the classic development environment and the Windows Client.
Business Central April ’19 also offers some more features for the user. For example, the entry of records on document pages has been simplified by Quick Entry and focus mode and list views can now be personalized. A number of new keyboard shortcuts, a work date indicator, faster and optimized scrolling and an improved context search in the cloud, which now also involves the AppSource, provide an optimized user experience. Software performance has also been improved (e.g. by optimizing RapidStart and application performance).
The new version also offers some technical improvements as well as improvements for administrators and developers. Among other things, the April release includes a new “Error Details” page for better error analysis, context-sensitive help and optimizations in the server area (e.g. “Multiple Unique Keys” and an increased maximum length of text and code fields).
These and other features and improvements are now available with the April ’19 version of Dynamics 365 Business Central or will be provided in the coming months. More details about the new features can be found soon on our blog.
