Business Central 2022 wave 1 (BC20) new features: A first look around in the Get Started checklist

Dynamics 365 Business Central

Hi, Readers.
The preview environment for Dynamics 365 Business Central 2022 release wave 1 (BC20) is available. Learn more: Link

I will continue to test and share some new features that I hope will be helpful.

The new feature discussed this time are related to two topics.

Guided tour that helps users find settings and personalization tools:

Business value:

Personalization is a powerful capability in Business Central. By being shown the options for personalization in a tour of the Role Center, the user is more likely to discover this capability early on so they can get productive with Business Central as fast as possible and decrease their onboarding time.

Feature details:

Today, some roles can take a tour of their Home page, the Role Center, as the first task in their Get Started checklist. This tour will now be expanded with more steps to highlight where to find settings and options for personalization in the Settings menu. This is important, especially in non-evaluation companies where users want to dive into settings or change their role to a more relevant one.

Tour of the Role Explorer and how to filter it:

Business value:

By choosing the best match role, users can be more productive with Business Central. In Business Central, users can get an overview of the functionality by navigating to the Role Explorer.

Feature details:

Dynamics 365 2022 release wave 1 adds a Role Center tour that nudges users to navigate the Role Explorer. When they go there, they’ll be offered a mini-tour that explains how the Role Explorer is structured and how they can filter the view to see, for example, Reporting & Analysis or Administration. Once they understand the filtering mechanism, it’s easier for users to see the breadth of reporting options or get a view of all setup-related pages.

When you sign in for the first time or launch a new company, the Get Started checklist takes you through the steps to make you ready for business. The steps vary depending on your country and any industry-specific functionality that you have added to your Business Central.

A new step, A first look around was added in Business Central 2022 wave 1 (BC20).
