    Hi Folks

    I'm interested to know what your approach has been with implementing D3FO's updates and how often. Having to implement even more than one a year is a challenge with all of our customizations so would like to get your thoughts and ideas on how you implemented it

    Jossy,

    we have only been live on D365FO since March.  Since that time, we have applied 2 service updates.  We have been told by our implementation partner that testing during these updates should be straight forward and not burdensome.However, we are also nervous about interfaces, customizations and ISVs.  I can tell you that we have tried to take the approach where, if our target version is backward compatible with our current ISV version, then we avoid deploying ISV updates at the same time.  Beyond that, i think we are required to deploy at least 3 times a year.

    Would love to hear how you are handling.

    Regards,
