What's new or changed in Dynamics 365 Human Resources (March 10, 2020)
This article describes features that are either new or changed in Dynamics 365 Human Resources. Changes apply to build number 8.1.2985. The numbers in parentheses in some headings refer to LCS support numbers for reference.
Can't access skill gap analysis report (394460)
This report isn't supported in Dynamics 365 Human Resources. The menu item to print the SSRS report is removed.
Incorrect message accessing the Getting Started page (417950)
With this change, security hides this menu item if you don't have access to the form.
Streamlined task maintenance for employees (380538)
The worker task maintenance form lists all tasks for an employee across onboarding, offboarding, transitions, and business processes. You can delete, reassign, or update the status of tasks.
Example: Benjamin Martin is a benefits administrator. During employee onboarding, tasks are created for Benjamin to review the new employee’s benefit selection. Benjamin has past tasks that he's completed, and future tasks that he needs to complete. Benjamin decides to leave the company, so his tasks need to be either re-assigned or removed. The task maintenance form (in the action pane of the Worker form) allows all of Benjamin’s tasks to be re-assigned to another worker or removed.
Common Data Service solution is now available with the following changes:
|Job/Position entity changes||
|Job position dimension entity added||
|Worker entity changes||
|Employment entity changes||
|Worker address entity changes||
|New variable compensation setup entities||
|New Worker calendar employment entity||
|New Payroll position detail entity||
|New Title entity||
Financial dimensions for both positions and employment provide one-direction integration for updates from Human Resources to Common Data Service. Financial dimensions updates don't currently synchronize from Common Data Service to Human Resources.
Over the next few weeks, these entity changes will be available in all environments. To manually install the latest Common Data Service solution for Human Resources:
Go to the Power Platform Admin Center.
Find the environment you want to upgrade. The environment should correspond to Environment name in the Common Data Service information section in the About form in Human Resources.
Select the environment to view the environment details.
In the action bar at the top, select Manage Solutions. A new browser window will open and navigate to Dynamics 365 Administration Center in the context of your environment.
In the Solution list, select Dynamics 365 Human Resources Anchor.
Select Upgrade to apply the latest solution.

Platform update 33
Full page apps (Preview) - This preview feature, which requires you to enable the Saved views feature, allows Power Apps and third-party apps to be added as full-page experiences via the dashboard.
Saved views (Preview) - This preview feature enables saved views, which is a significant enhancement to the personalization subsystem. This feature allows users to have multiple named sets of personalizations per page. You can also publish views to security roles.
Optimized "is one of" filtering experience - This feature enables an optimized "is one of" filtering experience that makes it easier to enter multiple filter values, has a simpler mechanism to remove individual or all filter values, and has a more compact and intuitive visualization of filter values.
Recommended fields - Users often need to add fields to a grid or page. This can be difficult with so many available fields. Instead of having to search through a large list, this feature enables the system to surface a set of recommended fields based on what other users most often add in similar scenarios.
Sticky default actions in grids - This feature ensures that the default action in a grid is linked to a specific column in a grid, regardless of whether that column is moved or hidden.
