2023 release wave 1 overview

The 2023 release wave 1 for Dynamics 365 brings new innovations that provide you with significant capabilities to transform your business. The release contains hundreds of new features across Dynamics 365 applications, including Marketing, Sales, Customer Service, Field Service, Finance, Supply Chain Management, Project Operations, Finance and Operations cross-app capabilities, Human Resources, Commerce, Fraud Protection, Business Central, Connected Spaces, Guides, Customer Insights, and Customer Voice, as well as Microsoft Viva Sales and Microsoft supply chain platform and its supporting products.

For me, one of the best updates was adding the financial Tags which will be available starting April 2023. You can now define financial tags to support analytical reporting and business rule automation.

Business Value of Finance Tags

Financial tags let organizations track user-defined fields on accounting entries posted to the general ledger. This eliminates the need to create financial dimensions that contain values that are not reusable. Additional financial dimensions increase the size of an organization’s chart of accounts, causing a negative impact on system performance during processes such as the year-end close. The financial tag values can be used for reporting purposes or ledger settlement. For example, you can create a financial tag to track payment references used for ledger settlements, making it easier to match transactions.
