Updated navigation bar that aligns with the Office header


These release notes describe functionality that may not have been released yet. To see when this functionality is planned to release, please review What’s new and planned for Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations. Delivery timelines and projected functionality may change or may not ship (see Microsoft policy).

Dynamics 365 products are working to align their respective headers with the Office header to provide a more cohesive shell experience for users across Microsoft products. For Finance and Operations users, this header update will be seen as a completely restyled navigation bar that more prominently features navigation search. Notably, the new design does not include a breadcrumb.

The updated navigation bar is shown by default in Platform update 24. For customers wanting to continue using the older navigation bar, this can temporarily be done via the Client performance options page, specifically using the Enable legacy navigation bar toggle. Note that this toggle will only be available through Platform update 28, at which time all customers will see the updated navigation bar.

The following image shows the updated navigation bar in Platform update 24.
