Dynamics 365 for Financials has been out for a while, and by now you have probably learned about how the functionality can be extended rather than modified. Instead of modifying the application objects directly, development is done using “extensions”, which are published as an “App” in AppSource.
What is unclear to a lot of partners is how this works exactly. What do you need to know? What do you need to do? Where do you get the help that you need? Microsoft has put together a few resources to get you started and to get you the help that you need.
- http://aka.ms/appsforfinancials is a page in the Microsoft PartnerSource website, where you can read the steps to take to get your app development started, including some additional resources.
- http://aka.ms/navdeveloperpreview is where you can spin off a development environment that has the new Visual Studio Code development tools
- http://aka.ms/navdemodeploy is where you can spin off a demonstration environment, based on the latest NAV version
You may need a partner source login and/or an Azure account to be able to access these pages. These links won’t answer all your questions, but you should find enough information to get started. Good luck!
