What’s New in Business Central April 2019 Release

April ’19 brings an update to Business Central that aims to enhance current customer satisfaction with the product.

Powerful new features for business users

Keyboard-centric features like speed of data entry and analysis, such as quick entry, list sorting, and data values. Improvements to features related to the customer context, such as work date and the company indicator, options enabling advanced users to be even more productive, such as focus mode, totals for lists, improved search, and the new page inspector. Enhancement related to filters in Excel export, common auto-save experience, and modern interface elements, such as the date picker, refreshed action bar, and all-product navigation.

Performance, reliability, and scalability enhancements

Along with innovative new features, Microsoft invested heavily in boosting performance, reliability, and scalability of Business Central, across the platform and business application.

The experience in the browser will be more responsive using technique of on-demand loading of page elements, server resources are optimized for fast user interaction, and the database has been tuned to handle more data and load it faster.

Users requiring assistance now have a single screen through which to find self-help material, share ideas with the community, and request support that has also been streamlined to reduce response time.

Business Central continues to meet ISO27001, ISO27017, ISO27018, SOC 1 & 2 Type 2, HIPPA BAA, and FERPA industry security and privacy compliance standards. For more details and a list of all certificates, see here.

Accessibility

Business Central is ready to support the diversity of your workforce where both the desktop and mobile interfaces are now highly accessible.

Base application as an app

Microsoft is making big investments in the platform to make it easier for ISVs to get into the cloud. This is achieved by splitting the big application that we have today into a system app and an app on top of that as an extension, compiled in AL using Visual Studio Code.

Data and AI

The last major investment for the April release is Data and AI future. Strengthen and prepare integration with Dynamics 365 for Sales through CDS and ensure Business Central data contributes to intelligent insights (notes synching, late payment prediction) in Dynamics 365 AI for Sales apps and Business Central users get intelligent insights generated by Dynamics 365 AI for Sales (predictive opportunity scoring).
