Dynamics 365 Business Central 2020 Release Wave 2: My favorite features

Twice a year in Spring and Fall Microsoft releases the highly anticipated planned features for that year's Business Central upcoming release wave, and today happens to be one of those days. Here's my favorite new features from the Business Central 2020 Release Wave 2.



My Favorite Business Central 2020 Release Wave 2 Administration Features


Improved overview and management of the available database and file capacity

Internal administrators or partners now have an overview over the database and how much it is being used. This is great for making recommendations on whether or not additional storage is needed and when to purchase. Currently the default Business Central storage capacity is 80 GB.


Support for an unlimited number of production and sandbox environments

There are number of businesses that have many companies under their umbrella and until now were not able to utilize Business Central for there ERP because of the lack of production environments. If you have unlimited production environments you have to have unlimited sandbox environments.


My Favorite Business Central 2020 Release Wave 2 Application Features


Bank reconciliation improvements

One of Business Central's biggest strengths is its ability to make you more efficient and it efficiency is always welcomed when dealing with bank reconciliations. You can now cancel a posted bank reconciliation on the Bank Acc. Reconciliation page in Business Central just in case you make a mistake.


Use Word document layouts to customize outgoing customer documents

Who doesn't want custom documents to send out to their customers? You can now export and then import Word document layout to work for Shipment documents, Return Orders documents, Service Quotes documents, Orders Documents, Invoices Documents, and Credit Memo documents.


Use contact Mobile Phone Number and Email consistently across application

You're only as good as the information your business has. The Mobile Phone Number and Email fields are not available on data entry pages, report data sets, report layouts, and segment lines that have contact details within Business Central.


My Favorite Business Central 2020 Release Wave 2 Better with Microsoft 365 Features


Business Central in Microsoft Teams

This is the feature I'm looking forward to the most of the 2020 Release Wave 2. Microsoft hasn't released too much information on how exactly this will work but we know the ultimate goal is to be able to bring Business Central data into Microsoft Teams to further collaboration and make quicker decisions.


My Favorite Business Central 2020 Release Wave 2 Modern Client Features


Role Centers open faster

If you've been using Business Central you know that sometimes the Role Center page can take longer to load than one would like. It's just about a second or two behind where it should be to interact with but now with the new upcoming release this should be corrected. How can Microsoft accomplish this? With the magic of the ability to cache the layout of a page.


Access multiple production or sandbox environments from mobile apps

With the announcement that unlimited sandboxes will be available in this release did Microsoft envision a future where each employee has his or her own sandbox for training purposes? If so, it's an absolute must that these sandboxes be accessed through mobile devices. One question still remains though, whether or not you'll be able to access multiple sandboxes from the desktop app?
