Dynamics 365 and Power Platform – 2020 Wave 2 Release Timeline


Microsoft has now released the timeline for the Dynamics 365 and Power Platform 2020 Release Wave 2. Each year, Microsoft delivers new capabilities in two six-month release waves. Wave 1 was released in April 2020 (which you can read more about here), bringing hundreds of new and updated features to the D365 Customer Engagement Applications and the Power Platform. Once again, this next wave will bring new functionality, rolling out from October 2020 until March 2021.
