North American clients who haven’t already updated their environments can expect to be automatically updated to the October 2021 Release Wave 2 version during the weekend of October 22 – 24th.
As you’re likely aware, Microsoft releases Dynamics 365 upgrades twice a year: typically, in April and October. In addition to a suite of feature updates, this year’s October release wave includes a number of user interface updates.
One of the keys to a successful upgrade is a communication plan to end users about what changes they will see. With this in mind, we’ve put together an outline of some of the most notable user interface changes from this wave for your reference.
One deprecation of note is that with this release, Microsoft is removing the tool tip feature, which allowed you to see the field description when you hover over a field. Microsoft has said they will release replacement functionality in the April 2022 update.
