D365 HR roadmap: what the future holds.

Hello HR Lovers. It's been a while since I posted something related to D365 HR. Today we will cover what is planned to be released in the next couple of months regarding Dynamics 365 Human Resources.

Please note that the releases may experience delays or changes. This article is written as of today: November 2nd, 2022.

We will cover part of the 2022 wave 2 investments as shown in the picture below.


Benefits-related notifications for employees:

  • Challenge: Contacting employees to solve issues regarding benefits. The benefits notifications feature allows benefits administrators to contact employees through email based on the employee's benefits enrollment progress. Email notifications can be used to send instructions to employees or reminders to complete their enrollment.

  • Business value: Solve challenges asap.

  • Feature details: Notify employees about:

    • Their open enrollment status

    • Plan updates due to qualifying events

    • Ability to select benefits for new hires


Teams App

  • Challenge: To simplify employee experience, workers use a self-service module within the Finance application and Teams are able to use the Teams App for leave requests.

  • Business Value: Enable leave scenarios in Teams on the merged infrastructure

  • Feature detail: Feature parity with the existing native Teams app


Flexible management of employee leave

  • Challenges: Managing leave in an organization can be complex, especially in organizations where employees are spread across the globe. Much of leave management is driven by regulatory policies in different countries in combination with the companies' leave policies.

  • Business value: Ability to manage employee leave in more detail to meet company and regulatory policies.

  • Feature details

    • Allow employees, managers, and HR to submit leave requests with an estimated return date.

    • Enable organizations to require documentation from employees when returning to work after a specific type of absence.

    • Management and approval of sick leave requests.


Enhanced view for Benefits admin

  • Challenge: Current Benefits administrator experience within D365FO/HR may be challenging and difficult to manage.

  • Business Value: Enhance benefit administrators' experience by providing functionality with bulk actions and an easier user interface.

  • Feature detail

    • Identify anomalies like incorrect contributions amounts added by the employee.

    • Apply mass actions. Bulk confirming employee selections.

    • Send a request to add more information to resolve issues.


Resource management integration

  • Challenges: Service-centric customers aspire to deploy a cohesive end-to-end story from resource demand to billable time. Along this journey, collaboration is needed between HR and the operations team. The availability, cost, and absence of the employee require alignment to reflect accurate information for project-based planning. Integration between universal resource scheduling and Human Resources will close this gap. This will ensure billable resources will have their contributions to the organizations financially tracked and document their professional growth.

  • Business value: Enhance the resource manager experience by bringing together all the employee information when resourcing a project

  • Feature detail: Enable employee (resource) information around skills, time off, and more mastered in Human Resources to be used when resourcing projects
