Dynamics 365 for Talent – Integrations

Few days ago, I’ve started with a story about new product (still Technical Preview) – Dynamics 365 for Talent. I want to spend a few words about possible integrations.

When you look at the official announcement, you can find that key integrations will support the overall business and the following integrations will be created, but they will be available at or shortly after general availability:

  • LinkedIn
  • Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3
  • Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations, Enterprise Edition
  • Background screening
  • Global payroll providers
  • ATS providers

As you can see, there are not planed integration with Dynamics 365 for Financials or with Dynamics NAV. But  think it will be necessary because these products don’t have a real HRM solution. But I’ve also found that it will be possible to use Common Data Services platform with built-in extension points for Power Apps, Flow and Power BI.

But, when I tried to make connection via Flow and Power App, I’ve found that it is still not available as a connection. Of course, it is probably because it is only technical preview and I’m sure it will be available with a general availability. I’m waiting this moment and I want to make some kind of integration. I’ll write about it, I hope soon.

Dynamics 365 for Talent

Effective July 1st, Microsoft will announce new Dynamics 365 family member. This is new HRM app – Dynamics 365 for Talent. Of course, this will not be only one news, but I want to say a few words about this product. First, we can run and test technical preview and I want to share some first experiences. We still cannot find all features here, but we can make the first sight. For example, we will still wait integration with LinkedIn. It will be very important integration, especially in recruitment process. But we still don’t know all areas where integration will be done. But again, lets see what we have here.

This will be standard SaaS solution with web client, very similar with D365 for Operations. And of course, it will be integrated with this solution. And I would like if we can get integration not only with this enterprise solution, but also with D365 for Financials. Minimum, I’m expecting some App for this.

If you try to run a few basic features in demo database, you can notice that it works fast enough and very smoothly. When we open app for the first time, we can see a menu as default dashboard and in the left side in the same moment. If icons are not clear enough on the left side, we just need to click on three-lines, and it will be expanded so you can see the names of these commands. Also, when you run system for the first time, you will find very good “Get Started” with very good prepared videos and with a lot of step-by-step manuals. And if this manuals are not enough, you have a awesome tool where you can create task saving; you just need to choose this tool, run it and do everything what you want to do; when you click on stop, system will create nice manual step-by-step and you can choose how and where you want to deploy it.

In this first text, I didn’t plan to speak about features, just to make some basic overview. In my next texts, I will write more about features.
