If you are looking for a brief summary of the release notes, I'm afraid you won't find it here. After creating entries about these highlights a couple of times, I realized that it doesn't make sense for me to share something you can read in a precise and excellent way delivered by the Product team at Microsoft.

The question is: what you will find here?
I decided I'm picking my favorite functionality and will share with you why I think is an awesome improvement. This time was quite easy to create content because what I'm about to share is just mind-blowing.
Let's set the mood
I invite you to be positive and think of a perfect world where everyone is using Dynamics 365 Human Resources (my dream), even with this situation the companies, managers, and HR Pros are missing a good part of what's going on with their workforce: wellbeing, insights, and employee engagement. Do you actually know any solution supporting these processes? If you do, you can imagine how cool the future will look. If you don´t know, there is an awesome platform called Microsoft Viva - powered by Microsoft 365 and delivered through Microsoft Teams - which enables amazing functionalities for employee experience and engagement.
As of now, companies using D365HR + Microsoft Viva were unable to have a combined profile across these platforms. This scenario adds a bit of complexity to HR Pros, as they want to be aware of the full picture related to the workforce, not only master and transactional data, but also insights and wellbeing data. Microsoft announced that there is a new functionality coming - dates below - where there is one employee profile through integration with Microsoft Viva.
Enabled for: Users by admins, makers, or analysts
Public preview: October 2022
General Availability: March 2023
We are all waiting for some additional details - mainly the UX. I'll make sure to share any updates over here so keep an eye on my posts :)
