Dynamics 365 for Operations – Platform Update 4

Last week, Dynamics 365 for Operations Platform Update 4 was released. If you haven’t already discovered, it’s loaded with some great improvements!


Here’s a quick rundown of the latest and greatest Dynamics 365 for Operations, build number 7.0.4425.16161:

Power BI

By loaded, we mean embedded, because Power BI is now embedded for all users. That means no one has to stand by in sadness while their co-workers hoard all of that beautiful data visualization and analysis to themselves.
