Tip #1195: Your D365 V9 On Premise Questions Answered

We had a chance to check out Dynamics 365 v9 On Premise, and in the process answered some of our lingering questions.

Does v9 On Premise have Unified Interface?

Yes — Unified Interface is included in V9OP. You can create new model driven apps and select between web and classic UI. Note it is the 9.0.2 version of Unified Interface — some of the goodies like Advanced Find that are available in Unified Interface online are not available in V9OP. Also, configuration of the Outlook App Module is not available in V9OP.

What about mobile?

Since Unified Interface is available in V9OP, the mobile app experience will reflect the Unified Interface. Like with V9 Online, the Mobile Express forms are also gone.

Virtual entities

Virtual entities are supported in V9OP.

    Hello thank you for this post, it was very useful.
    Just one question, does the new onpremise version support somehow the mobile offline capability that is available in the online version?

    Is it correct that the unified interface on On Premise needs to be enabled/activated?
    Would you per chance know where this can be done?

    Iv’e updated a 8.3 organization to crm 9, but I get the feeling that the UI is in some sort of legacy mode still.
    Can’t find anything under System Settings on where to enable, and google gives only results for CRM online 🙁

    Best regards

      Unified Interface is enabled on prem the same it is online–create a model driven app via the app designer (in settings). If you set your model driven app to be a unified interface app, users who access that app will see the unified interface.

    Been watching alot of news from the business application summit, but there has been no words on the future of CE onprem. The same goes with all the webcasts that Microsoft hosts now and then regarding Dynamics CE. Should we recognize it as “legacy” software with a end of life date soon to come?

    • Yes, on premises is becoming a legacy. The online innovations are just too fast for on-premises to keep up with. There is no infrastructure to support Azure-based parts like CDS itself, to begin with, or flow, or canvas apps, or newer things like AI builder. Security, scalability, performance – just not there.

      I can’t think of a single argument to stay on-premises apart from “we built tons of unsupported stuff that we can’t migrate”.

      My guess is that there will be some infrequent releases but more and more features will be left out.
