Microsoft Ignite 2018 day 1 recap

Today Microsoft Ignite 2018 has kicked off with a lot of exciting news.
You may view sessions and on-demand videos on the main site:

Microsoft Ignite 2018

One of the most important content is the fall release documentation referred as 2018 October Release Notes, available on the Docs site

We can use new, more advanced and modern capabilities of the Power platform. Microsoft is also introducing AI to many Dynamics 365 products.

We can access a new library of training courses on a portal called Microsoft Learn. Here we get free learning opportunity for tools like PowerApps, Flow and Common Data Service.

The highlight which I am very excited about now is the soon-to-be-released tool called Regression Test Suite already mentioned in the release documentation. It was one of our requests during a workshop with Microsoft to improve capabilities on automating our manual user interactions. Every Friday after our regular maintenance we go through the same set of tasks for validating stability. This is to ensure that there are no disruptions to our business operation due to deploying code. This tool could be the answer to that by creating chains of small operational tasks, then running the entire test suite containing those test cases and validating the results in an automated fashion.

Microsoft is also improving the technical areas with further updates:

I would highly recommend to take your time and go through the wealthy content and videos shared as part of Microsoft Ignite 2018.

New search tag for Dynamics 365 F&O EE – #MSDyn365FO

We all can feel the pain with the new naming of AX 7, being Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations, Enterprise edition. When you need to find documentation or blog posts it is really a pain to type that out. To help resolve the issue, we have received a new tag as #MSDyn365FO that we could use in our search terms, yay!

Please find the original announcement on MSDN Blogs.

The complete Microsoft documentation has been stamped with it, you can find it in the header. All future official blog posts will be tagged with it, and we encourage individuals as well to do the same for better relevance on Blogs, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, or any other social media you are consuming.

#MSDyn365FO

This works great with search engines. If you want to find for example how to use services in AX 7, now you could just Google with that search phrase tag and you get back the correct result as first hit for “Service endpoints – Finance and Operations” on the Docs site:
