Every month, enCloud9 chooses one topic from the Power Platform/Dynamics 365 universe and focuses their blogging on that topic. This past month, our topic was the Dynamics 365 updates from the 2022 Release Wave 1. We wrote a four-part series about the upcoming features. Here are snippets of each article we wrote and links so you can read more.

Part 1 – Managing System Views in Dynamics 365 CE

Views are the primary way we see information in Dynamics 365 – resembling an excel spreadsheet. The 2022 Dynamics 365 Release 1 makes several updates to how users control the views that they see and also how views appear. Users are able to better control their own experience and focus on what is most important to their day.

In this blog entry, we discuss:

  • Two major changes to views
  • Hiding and sorting views
  • Enabling this experience for a user/ getting started

Part 2 – Teams Integration updates with Dynamics 365 CE

Among the top new or improved features in the April 2022 Dynamics 365 release includes a tighter integration with Microsoft Teams. We will discuss the many enhancements in this area in this second part to our series on new features on the 2022 release wave 1.

In this blog entry, we discuss:

  • Teams Chat
  • Creating and opening Teams meetings from Dynamics 365 appointments
  • Document Management
  • Embedded Dynamics 365 in Teams App

Part 3 – In-app Notifications in Dynamics 365 CE

Over the years we have all become used to receiving notifications from all the apps we use every day. Whether it is Facebook, LinkedIn, or e-mail – a notification signals to us that something important needs our attention. With the 2022 Dynamics 365 Release Wave 1 plan, Microsoft is adding in-app notifications to Dynamics 365 CE.

In this blog entry, we give a simple scenario to demonstrate the value of in-app notifications.

This has been one of the top requested features for the last several years and I am happy that Microsoft is listening to its users.

Part 4 – Modern Advanced Find in Dynamics 365 CE

It has been years since Advanced Find underwent a major update. The 2022 release brings a new Modern Advanced Find, something that many users are excited to see! In Part 4 of our series of updates included in the 2022 Dynamics 365 Wave 1 release we will walk through the new way to query Dynamics 365 data.

In this blog entry, we discuss:

  • Dataverse Search
  • Configuring and using Modern Advanced Find
  • Managing and Sharing Views
  • Dynamics 365 Connector fir Microsoft Search
