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

Managing resource availability is a key factor in the efficiency of a business's service operation. This enhancement improves the user experience, making it easier to manage work hours and time off.

Feature details

Resource managers currently set resources' calendars, establishing work hours and time off. This is a new and simplified experience for maintaining working hours. The experience is accessible and consistent with Unified Interface experiences. Additionally, the calendar control will be a Power Apps component framework control, meaning that partners and customers can enable scenarios to modify resources' working hours from outside entity forms and views, like with a canvas app.

Note

This feature is available in the Unified Interface only.
