November Update – Finance and Operations, Business edition
 
In the November Release we have made the following new capabilities available, including the Accountant Hub in public preview, Cost Accounting, Prepayments, Microsoft Flow, Alternative Order Address and New “How to” videos.

Cost Accounting
Using Cost Accounting will help gaining a better understanding of the cost of doing business—analyzing what types of costs are incurred, where costs occur, and who bears those costs. Allocate actual and budgeted costs to operations, departments, products, or projects to analyze the profitability of each entity within your company.

Cost Accounting can be set up under ‘Setup & Extensions’. Once set up, the module is available in the Accountant Role Center or by using search.

Prepayments
Prepayments can give you peace of mind by letting you invoice and collect deposits required from customers, or remit deposits to vendors, so you can be sure that all payments are posted against an invoice.

You can define prepayment requirements for a customer or vendor for all items, or only selected items.

Alternative Order Address
Purchase Orders now support Alternative Order Addresses, meaning that purchasers can now choose from four different address options when placing a purchase order. The default option is to automatically fill the ship-to fields with the company address or customer address in case of sell-to-customer orders. Choosing location address lets the purchaser choose from a list of company locations. The Customer Address option automatically fills the fields with the customer address for drop shipments. Finally, the purchaser can choose a custom address for one-off shipments.
 
Alternative Order Address
 
Microsoft Flow
Flows can now be managed from different environments within Dynamics 365. On the ‘Manage Flows’ page you will now find a list of environments from Microsoft Flow that you have access to. Once a selection is made it will be remembered until a new environment is chosen. Users can also define which Microsoft Flow environment they want to display and manage within Dynamics 365, providing flexibility to work with different environments (for example a test and a production environment).

In addition, Microsoft Flow templates for General Journal Batches and General Journal Lines have been added.

Microsoft Flow
 
User Tasks
The Accountant Hub now supports User Tasks, so accountants have an overview of all assigned tasks from all companies—including visual indications for overdue tasks. The company details page now shows cues for pending tasks and allows you to drill back to those tasks from the page.

Documentation full application scope
Help for this update contains descriptions of advanced functionality, which may not be visible in your version of Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations, Business edition. The reason for this is that the full application scope, which will be generally available in Spring 2018, has been made available for preview by users accessing through the Sandbox option. To support users with Sandbox access, Help now describes the full application scope. This means that until Spring 2018, you can see descriptions in Help that you may not have access to. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
