Business Central What’s New in Application BC18 to BC24

Business Central What’s New in Application BC18 to BC24

I Promised – well sort off.

But here it is: the updated What’s New in Application for all versions from BC18 (Release Wave 1 2021) up until BC24 (Release Wave 1 2024).

It seems that the focus has been Job module – Ups! Sorry the Project module, which is the new name, and the service module.

Again, I have split the changes into the different modules so it is possible to get an overview of the progress over the years.
