We know that applications and services can sometimes change at a fast rate, and that it can be hard for consumers to keep abreast of all the latest changes. To help you stay current, the Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Retail product team conducts a monthly webinar on the first Thursday of every month, providing information about recently released features and upcoming features that are planned in the next few months. These webinars also provide a forum for our partners, customers, and support colleagues to ask questions and provide feedback.
We understand that everyone has a different schedule and demands, and a lot of us are in different time zones. To accommodate anyone who can’t attend a live webinar, we record all the webinars and post them for on-demand viewing.
The webinar that we presented in May was attended by over a hundred participants. We started with a demo of extensibility enhancements where the new application programming interface (API) triggers that were made available in the April monthly release were used with the point of sale (POS). After that, we discussed details of the POS independent packaging feature—this was received with great excitement from the attendees. We then switched gears from extensibility to the recently released auto-charges capability and pricing and promotion enhancements. The last part of the webinar provided insights into the upcoming demo data changes, and we showcased visuals for the POS clienteling capabilities that are planned for an upcoming Retail release. Attendees posted their questions in the Teams chat window, and product group members were there to respond.
You can find recordings and presentation materials from the last webinar, and also information about the next upcoming webinar, on the Retail Interest Group Yammer group. This Yammer group is quite active—used by implementation partners, support, customers, and product group members to post questions and comments—allowing members to take advantage of the collective knowledge of the Retail community.

The next webinar is June 6, 2019. We’re looking forward to seeing you all there!
