Users around the world can now view the release plans of Dynamics 365 and Power Platform in Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Norwegian, Portuguese (Brazilian), Spanish, Swedish, and English. 

This update underscores our commitment to inclusivity. We at Microsoft strongly believe that language should not be a barrier to accessing tools and information. With this update, we aim to provide a more personalized, standardized, and intuitive user experience regardless of where you are in the world. 

How to view and manage plans in your preferred language?  

Our user-friendly design ensures that the Release Planner automatically loads in your preferred language based on your browser settings. Additionally, you can switch to your desired language through the language switcher in the header.

The Release Planner advantage 

The Release planner for Microsoft Dynamics 365 and Microsoft Power Platform allows customers to view and manage release plans across all active release waves in a unified and interactive interface while giving them the option to personalize, filter, sort, and collaborate on release plans. 

Under the hood, the Release Planner is powered by the Power Apps portal. It is created based on customer feedback to address the constraints of content suitability, discoverability, and personalization. Our goal is to improve the release planning and change management process where it matters most – help customers identify and track their salient capabilities, included in both the current and upcoming release waves. 

Here are some of its key features: 

Content personalization through ‘My Release plans’ 

Create a curated list of release plans you would like to follow. All the release plans across various products can be viewed in a unified view.
