  1. Microsoft will keep on supporting older versions of Dynamics inside the time period of the details in our Update policy. You have alternatives for when you update your Dynamics 365 Online association to Dynamics 365 (on the web), version 9.0. To get ready for a smooth procedure, utilize the data on this topic.

 

  1. You, as a Dynamics 365 system manager, choose when to install Dynamics 365 (on the web) real updates for your organization. To update to the latest release of Dynamics 365 (online), finish these two stages:

 

  • Review the data in the Updates page in the Dynamics 365 (online) Administration Center (https://portal.office.com > Admin focuses > Dynamics 365 > Updates tab) to find out what instances are ready to update, and the schedule.

 

  • Approve the update: You’ll get an email before the update is accessible with a scheduled update date. This email will also include instructions about how to reschedule the update if you choose. You’ll get updates 90, 30, 15, and 7 days before the update starts. The update will happen during a 12-hour, and during that time your organization might be unavailable for a few hours. Most updates regularly take 2-4 hours. We’ll tell you when your organization is updated and ready to use. For more data, see the Schedule for update communications later on this subject.

 

  1. Microsoft’s responsibility to twice yearly Dynamics 365 updates reflects its recent practice of spring and autumn releases. What this updated policy change is the capacity of executives to avoid a cloud release. While D365 clients have possessed the capacity to stay up to one behind the most recent cloud release this will currently require all clients to be on the latest available version.

 

  1. Customers using v9.0 are as of now using the latest version but this policy change will require v8.2 clients to finish their cloud update preceding February 2019 to avoid from having an automated update being booked by Microsoft.

 

  1. In addition to its two major releases each year, Microsoft guarantees a continuous set of updates for reliability and execution. This has been evident recently with a noticeable step up in the frequency of its update cadence with new updates arriving most weeks. Rather than spreading its resources across multiple products, with all users on one version the expectation will be that it enables Microsoft to better focus on adding new features and making performance improvements.
