Easier onboarding of ISV add-ons for Dynamics 365 Business Central.

Feature details

In earlier versions, users who installed an app from AppSource or through the Extension Marketplace page in Business Central were guided to initiate the installation. After that, the user had to remember to go to the Extensions Management page, find the Deployment Status subpage, and there find information about the installation status. This caused friction and wasn't a helpful experience for getting apps.

In this release wave, the app installation guide in Business Central is improved so the user can choose to wait for the installation of the app and subsequent initiation of the setup page that was brought by the app. This allows for a smoother app installation experience from beginning to end.

New capability to wait for the app installation to complete

New waiting screen to inform the user that installation is ongoing.

After app installation completes, the user can choose whether to proceed with setup
