Business value

Users who enter a year as a two-digit number will get results that are closer to the year they expect.

Feature details

With 2022 release wave 1, users who enter a two-digit year in Business Central online see that input render in the range 1950-2049.

In previous releases, the default behavior was to follow the Windows settings, which would give different behaviors depending on the operating system.

For Business Central on-premises, no change is imposed, but you can use the server setting CalendarTwoDigitYearMax to achieve the same experience.
