Hello All,

Spring Wave Field Service 2018 Release is now globally deployed and, following the steps below, you can opt-in to build a new org using this new release.

This version of Field Service ONLY works on the new Unified Interface and has significant functional enhancements around Unified Interface based experiences, new Schedule Board experiences including the new Schedule Board List View, customer asset associated 3D content capabilities, and more.

The Unified Interface has significant improvements over the web-client interface which has driven the user experience in Dynamics for the several years. Despite the improvements in this new interface, we recognize that switching over to the Unified Interface may represent a challenge for your users who have become familiar with the web client. To ease that transition, for this major version release, you will have the choice of OPTING-IN to try the new UCI-based 8.x.x.x generation of the Field Service application. In the meantime, you can continue running and updating the 7.x version of Field Service that works with the web client.
