As announced in this blog post, Microsoft is making some changes to the update schedules in April in response to COVID-19. The April 2020 release wave 1 updates will be generally available as mentioned in the Dynamics 365 and Power Platform release plans. More information is available in the product-specific FAQs. We will continue to release critical updates for Dynamics 365 applications and Power Platform, and are extending the deprecation timelines for some capabilities to give customers and partners additional time to make the transition. Microsoft is committed to supporting to our customers and partners in these uncertain times.

Business value

With this release, the event registration experience is undergoing a major overhaul to increase the speed and concurrency of the registration process.

Feature details

  • Use marketing forms in events: Event planners are able to use forms within the Marketing application to create forms for event registration, which enables event planners to build registration forms using a familiar drag-and-drop interface and to include more types of fields.
  • Embed registration forms into any CMS: For the first time, event registration forms can be embedded into any third-party content management system (CMS), just like other forms in the Marketing application.
  • Design forms within the event: Event planners can design event registration forms from the event entity without leaving the event.
