How to create custom fields in CoreHR and send them to PowerApps (Common Data Services)

Starting March 26th, Microsoft opened up Dynamics 365 for Talent by allowing the creation of fields and sending the data to CoreHR. This was not possible until now and creates new opportunities for consultants to get data from CoreHR and use them in integration scenarios (with Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations, but also other applications).Watch my video for how to do it:The available entities are: Worker Ethnic origin Veteran status Language code Job Job type...

Extending Talent with PowerApps and Microsoft Flow (Real Case Scenarios)

Microsoft Partners are still worried about the extensibility features provided by Talent, mainly because Talent is a locked application, for now. You can't modify if you have AX background , you can't modify it with CRM customization framework. You can only do things in PowerApps. This makes a lot of sense for Microsoft, thought, who tries to push (better said, force) partners to move towards CDS and PowerApps.A great article was published on docs.microsoft.com, on March 4th, providing also ...

No Gauge? No Problem! Microsoft Forms Pro is here!

Dynamics 365 Talent To Dynamics 365 Finance And Operations Integration

One of the most important feature required in the last 6 months is about the integration between Dynamics 365 for Talent and other applications, mainly Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations. In November 2018 Microsoft has released a template for automatic mapping between CDS entities, with data coming from CoreHR in Talent, and Finance and Operations.To be perfectly clear, this is not a integration between Talent (CoreHR) and F&O, but between CDS and F&O. This means that you will o...

Dyn365 for Talent users are no longer recognised when username alias is changed in Office 365 Azure Active Directory

Recently, I changed my alias in Office 365 portal. I did not add or delete an username, but changed the login alias I was using, with a new domain. All of a sudden, my Dynamics 365 for Talent account did not work anymore, throwing me an error "You are not authorized to login with your current credentials. You will be redirected to the login page in a few seconds." Needless to say I'm the global administrator of the Office 365 tenant and I have a license for Dyn365 for Talent.Because the erro...

New Forms in Dyn 365 for Talent? Not yet

Being involved more and more in the Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Talent community, I get the following question: Can we create custom forms in Talent and capture data in other ways than the provided forms?  This is a legitimate question, but the answer is NO, not yet.It will take some time to mix all the AX and Dynamics CRM ingredients together. As you know, Dynamics 365 for Talent (or at least the majority of it) is the former Core HR module from Dynamics AX (aka Axapta, aka Dynamics 365 for ...
