Technical Deep Dive: Removing Overlays in Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations

Thursday, March 15, 2018 @ 11:00 AM EDT


With the impending lock down of the Application Suite of Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations, Enterprise edition in the spring release, customized code in overlays must be refactored into extensions to comply with Microsoft best practices.

Join us for a deep-dive technical session on how you can overcome some of the challenges customers and partners typically experience when refactoring over-layered customizations and ISV solutions. In particular, this session will:

  • Explore the various techniques for supported functionality on the extension framework
  • Review the limitations and common challenges of getting your overlayering objects extended
  • Show you real time examples of over-layering code and how you can use the extension framework to extend your solution
  • Teach you how to analyze the over-layered objects and categorize them to fix using the extension framework
  • Identify extensibility requests and how you can engage with Microsoft in addressing them
  • Show you how to refactor code to overcome limitations
