Microsoft has added some new functionality to Dynamics 365 Business Central v17 (wave 2) that allows companies to review new features (functionality) that are being added to newer versions of Dynamics 365 Business Central. Companies also will be able to disable features that they believe may cause a disruption in their processes, but only for a short period of time. By disabling the feature it allows companies to test the new functionality before the feature is automatically enabled on a certain date. As of today I have seven features listed in my environment, version US Business Central 17.0 (platform 17.0.17020.18352). Enabling feature If you'd like to enable a feature you can edit the list and select 'all users' from the drop down. Once selected then the current company status will switch to 'enabled' as well. You must sign out and back in for the changes to take effect. While working my way down the list to enable all the features I did receive some message
Creating a test company within your production environment couldn't be any easier within Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central. One of the biggest reasons to have a test company within your production environment is for training or testing. It's my recommendation that if you're looking to test out new code or processes you should do that within your Sandbox environment and not your production environment first. To create a test company, which in this case would be a copy of production follow these steps: 1. Look up/tell me what you want to do the Companies window. 2. Select the company you'd like to copy over to a new test company. 3. Select Actions > Copy 4. Add the new companies name and agree to the verbiage within the window. Once completed click OK. 5. Break time. 6. Finally done. 7. Modify user security for those that need to access the new company.
