Business value

Any organizational role that uses sandbox environments, such as administrators, developers, consultants, or power users, often has to switch between different test environments that contain different data, customizations, or are at different stages of rolling out a new business process.

Feature details

With the sandbox environment picker, you can choose from all sandbox environments that are available in your organization. The picker will only be displayed if multiple sandboxes have been provisioned and displays when you navigate from the Business Central Sandbox tile in the Dynamics 365 Home portal or in the App Launcher.

The sandbox picker allows users to choose between their available sandboxes

To switch from one sandbox environment to another, open the App Launcher, choose the Dynamics 365 tile, and then choose the Business Central Sandbox tile. The picker will display the available sandboxes.

Try it out

If your organization already has multiple sandbox environments, try the picker by signing in to your Business Central account.
