This feature will merge the capabilities from the standalone Human Resources app into the Finance and Operations infrastructure.

Feature details

Within Dynamics 365 today are two sets of human resources capabilities. One set is in the standalone Human Resources application, which uses a different infrastructure than Finance and Operations apps. The other set of capabilities is in the legacy Human Resources module in Dynamics 365 Finance. This causes confusion for customers and partners about which set of capabilities to use.

Merging the Human Resources infrastructure into the same infrastructure as other Finance and Operations apps, such as Finance, Supply Chain Management, and Project Operations, eliminates the confusion about which set of capabilities to use. You'll have a single set of human resources capabilities within Dynamics 365.

The capabilities and investments that have been made in Human Resources will be available within Finance.

Some of these capabilities include:

  • Leave and absence management
  • Benefits management
  • Task management
