Finance and operations

Dynamics 365 Finance is launching the general availability of vendor invoice OCR, which automates the reading and recognition of vendor invoices, and will continue adding capabilities for subscription billing use cases. We will integrate Tax Calculation service with Dynamics 365 Project Operations (preview) and extend Electronic Invoicing service to support new upcoming e-invoice legislations for France, Poland, and Saudi Arabia.

Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management continues to invest in capabilities that drive agility and resilience across the supply chain. New analytics and support for multiple vendors in Planning Optimization help organizations optimize their sourcing strategies. Inventory Visibility lets organizations track real-time consumption within allocated quantities in support of promotions, special events, and new product introductions. Guided warehouse implementation and configuration experiences enable rapid reconfiguration of supply chains, and manufacturers in the process industry can use Planning Optimization for shortening their planning cycles.

Dynamics 365 Intelligent Order Management has continued to expand its ecosystem of providers and build on its continued success. We now have 14 providers that span the Supply Chain Lifecycle from order ingestion to last mile delivery. In the upcoming release we are adding support for various Order Types—back orders, subscription orders, manual orders, and purchase orders. We’ll also provide the ability to simulate fulfillment so that our customers can model and understand the impact in choosing various fulfillment strategies. Finally, we have contextual collaboration features where an order can be shared with multiple stakeholders using embedded Teams.

Dynamics 365 Project Operations is continuing to invest in capabilities to empower project managers and project teams in this release wave with Project Budgeting and Time-phased forecasting, Baselines and Snapshots, and in modernizing application experiences on the web and mobile form factors. For project accountants and back-office personas, we are lighting up advanced subcontracting and subscription billing capabilities. In addition, across-the-board investments to ease the complexity of interaction patterns and uptake of modern and fluent controls are also targeted for this release wave.

Finance and Operations cross-app capabilities apply to all Finance and Operations apps, including Dynamics 365 Finance, Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management, Dynamics 365 Commerce, and Dynamics 365 Project Operations. We’ll continue to improve the One Dynamics One Platform workstream, which focuses on enabling Finance and Operations applications on Power Platform for administrators, pro-developers, and end-users. It includes enhancements to One Admin, One Developer, and One User experiences.

Human Resources

Dynamics 365 Human Resources will bring improved efficiency by enabling HR business partners to tailor experiences and automatically complete processes where manual decisions and tasks are needed today. Improved efficiency will also be available to managers and employees by providing notifications outside of the application for benefits processes and tasks. We’ll also provide better experiences across Dynamics 365 applications by integrating employee skill, compensation, and departure information to resource managers in Project Operations.
