I’ve finished updating an environment with a preview for 10.0.20 and reviewed the new preview features which I wanted to share with you. I also posted a blog earlier today if you are looking for more information on how you can also get access to preview builds through the Preview Early Access Program (PEAP). Click here for a link.

If you are looking for the list of KBs included in this release, that can be found here.

Here is a list of the new features marked for public preview in 10.0.20:

Feature name

Module

Batch task size number of lines

Introduces the Account Receivable “Number of document lines in batch task” parameter that adds capability to limit the number of document lines being posted per batch task. The parameter will affect posting of confirmation, picking list, packing slip and invoice.

Accounts receivable

Customer payment predictions (preview)

This feature uses machine learning to predict when an invoice will be paid. It uses historical invoice, payment, and customer data to create a machine learning model that is used to predict when an invoice will be paid. This feature uses the Power AI service and specific data fields to make predictions. To improve the accuracy of predictions you may choose additional data fields in Power AI that are relevant to your organization when setting up the feature. For more details about what it means to be a preview feature, see https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=2122539
