Business Central 2022 wave 2 (BC21) new features: Easily install and set up new apps

Dynamics 365 Business Central

Hi, Readers.
The preview environment for Dynamics 365 Business Central 2022 release wave 2 (BC21) is available. Learn more: Link.

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

Easily install and set up new apps:

Business value:

Easier onboarding of ISV add-ons for Dynamics 365 Business Central.

In earlier versions, users who installed an app from AppSource or through the Extension Marketplace page in Business Central were guided to initiate the installation.

After that, the user had to remember to go to the Extensions Management page, find the Deployment Status subpage, and there find information about the installation status. This caused friction and wasn’t a helpful experience for getting apps.

In this release wave, the app installation guide in Business Central is improved so the user can choose to wait for the installation of the app and subsequent initiation of the setup page that was brought by the app.

When there is a Set up page in the extension (primary setup object):

This allows for a smoother app installation experience from beginning to end.

PS: Some other changes to the Extension management page.
1. “Configure” action that opened card page for the extension has been removed.

Now you can click Extension Name to open Extension Settings page.

In BC 20.5:

2. In this wave, Microsoft added new “Set up” action.

Hope this will help.
