Business value

The data exchanged between Business Central and Common Data Service is easy to update, and can be enriched by other Power Apps or Power Apps connectors. Occasionally, that can lead to conflicts in the data, and resolving conflicts requires user attention. This feature decreases the number of conflicts that can occur in integrations between Business Central and Common Data Service, making users more productive.

Feature details

The process of synchronizing data between Business Central and Common Data Service is better at recognizing conflicts caused by changes to data in either Business Central or Common Data Service. It now enforces business rules set for unidirectional field mappings, and detects changes only in fields with bidirectional field mappings. Synchronization generates fewer conflicts, enabling users to focus on their jobs rather than resolving conflicts.
